Our Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Business Study Abroad Program is designed to further open the gateway to your global career. The program is operated in partnership with TAU’s Coller School of Management, a world-renowned school preparing students with the methodologies and skill set they need to succeed in today’s business world. We offer the perfect setting both in the classroom as well as exposure to outside of the classroom here in the Innovation Nation. By choosing to come study in a country that is also known as the Start-Up Nation, and by living in Tel Aviv, Israel’s financial and technological capital, you will be immersed in a world of innovative culture and trailblazing companies.


For students looking to maximize their global professional experience and future connections while studying here in Tel Aviv, we offer our Entrepreneurship and Internship Program. Our internship program enables students to gain valuable international work experience, explore various potential career paths, build a network of contacts and learn from experts. You will be able to intern with leading organizations and companies in various fields such as: Business, High-Tech, Communications, Real Estate, Non-Profit, Social Entrepreneurship, Education, Business Development, and much more.


How does it work? Students on the Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Business Study Abroad Program + Internship Program begin with a mandatory intensive Hebrew language course, called an Ulpan, to first prepare students for life in Israel (note: students at Hebrew Level 8 or above are exempt from mandatory Ulpan). From there, they take three required semester courses in the subjects of Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Finance. They can also select one elective from our list of study abroad courses if they prefer. Students begin their internship part-time while taking their spring semester courses, and then in the summer semester students move to full time in their internships while taking one required academic workshop worth 3 semester credits. The workshop-style course will focus on developing your career goals and professional skills and will deal with issues such as cultural differences in the workplace, interpersonal problem solving, project management, interviewing, career development and much more. Visit the Curriculum page for more details.


Placement Process and Details

Once students apply to the Business + Internship program, the TAU Internship Coordinator will schedule a Skype call with the student to gather comprehensive information on the type of internship that might be best suited for the student based on the skills, interests, and experience. From there, the Coordinator will work to find an internship placement that will be a good match from both the perspective of the student and the organization or company that is providing the internship. In some cases, it may be possible to offer more than one internship possibility to a student; this depends on several factors including the field of interest, company availability, etc. Having knowledge of Hebrew will help increase opportunities; however, Hebrew is not mandatory for an internship placement. In addition, internship placements depend largely on a student’s flexibility and success in completing the requirements to be accepted to an internship (interviewing successfully, providing a suitable cover letter and resume, etc.). While our Internship Coordinator helps to prepare and guide students in this regard, it is ultimately the responsibility of the student to successfully complete these steps. For this reason, acceptance to the internship program does not automatically guarantee an internship placement. Placement depends on a mutual fit approved from both the student and company perspective. All internships are unpaid.
