TAU Opens Registration for New Management & Liberal Arts BA

Written on |

International program will equip future business leaders with academic and practical experience at Tel Aviv’s innovation hub.

Tel Aviv University launched a new International BA in Management and Liberal Arts, with an emphasis on entrepreneurship, and recently opened enrollment for the inaugural class beginning in the 2022-23 academic year.   

The competitive three-year, double-major track will be taught entirely in English. The Program is open to students from around the world. It is among the first of its kind in Israel and joins a growing number of such degree offerings around the world. 

Training for Success, Tel Aviv Style 

Today’s global business arena is becoming increasingly complex and competitive. The Program’s organizers believe that, to succeed, managers and entrepreneurs need a diverse skill set that combines a deep understanding of management with knowledge from a range of other disciplines. 

Against this backdrop. TAU launched the Program, building on its record as one of the world’s top universities for producing successful entrepreneurs and strength in interdisciplinary research. The new degree will build on TAU’s record as a top institution for innovation and entrepreneurship and its proximity to Tel Aviv’s renowned startup scene. In 2021, TAU was ranked fifth in the world for entrepreneurship and eighth in the world for startup founders. The Coller School of Management is ranked 30th in the world, and its MBA program is 13th internationally

“The symbiotic relationship between Tel Aviv University and Tel Aviv’s thriving innovation ecosystem with over 2,000 startups has created a unique campus environment that breeds game-changing ideas and innovations,” said TAU Vice President of International Collaboration Prof. Milette Shamir. “This new Program directly reflects TAU’s priorities to become increasingly global and provide a holistic education to all students to prepare them to make real-world impact.” 

Diverse Skills to Lead Today’s Businesses

Students in the International BA in Management and Liberal Arts will learn from world-class faculty and instructors, many of whom are industry leaders. The Program also offers students frequent interaction with the local hi-tech sector through internships, networking and mentoring. It is the latest initiative demonstrating TAU’s adoption of a global trend of incorporating a broad liberal arts education into science and technology curricula; it joins initiatives including the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Program for Humanities in Engineering.   

The new degree’s academic programming is the result of a joint venture between The Coller School of Management, Israel’s top-ranked business school, and The International BA in Liberal Arts. Graduates from both TAU units have become successful leaders in business and hi-tech.  

Prof. Shai Danziger, academic head of the International BA in Management and Liberal Arts at TAU, said: “Traditional degrees for entrepreneurs, such as management or accounting, don’t necessarily provide the kind of diverse skill sets needed to lead businesses today. The broad skills that our students are going to acquire in the humanities and from Tel Aviv’s world-leading startup hub are certain to make them better managers, both in startups and in large corporations.”  

As in TAU International’s over 60 other English-language programs, students in the International BA in Management and Liberal Arts program will study among a diverse cohort of students in small classes. The curriculum incorporates rigorous management sciences with an option of seven specialized study tracks in the liberal arts: psychology, digital culture and communications, philosophy, literature, Jewish-Israel Studies, Middle Eastern Studies, and life sciences.
