February 19, 2017 | Israel’s IDC Herzliya has received the approval of the Council for Higher Education to open enrollment for an undergraduate double major in entrepreneurship, to be taught in English, the first of its kind in Israel. The program will provide young entrepreneurs the knowledge and the tools to realize their ideas and entrepreneurial ambitions. The IDC was the first to develop a training program for entrepreneurship 16 years ago. The Adelson School of Entrepreneurship, headed by Prof. Yair Tauman, offers academic courses to all IDC students as part of joint academic programs, or as elective courses. The new BA program in Entrepreneurship is based on the unprecedented success of two other special programs at IDC: The ZELL program for entrepreneurship and Media Innovation Lab (MiLab). The IDC was founded in 1994 by Prof. Uriel Reichman as a private, nonprofit institution for higher education that doesn’t rely on government subsidies.
