Meaningful Learning

The program combines theoretical learning, action-oriented

learning, and supervised professional training. The curriculum

includes intensive workshops and experimental learning.

Students also participate in practicum classes, which are designed

to develop their basic counseling skills and to provide them

with professional training in organizational diagnosis. Students

gain practical experience in their second year, when they enter

organizations and conduct a complete supervised organizational

analysis. Most classes will be conducted in small groups. This

will facilitate dialogue among the students and enable them

to participate in discussions and to benefit from a personalized

and highly relevant learning experience.


Academic and Professional Excellency

Program lecturers are leading scholars in their field, academicians of international repute who have extensive teaching and research experience in universities in Israel and worldwide.
The interdisciplinary curriculum focuses on the interface between organizational behavior, social psychology, positive psychology, counseling, and business administration.

Bridging Academia and Real-World Organizations

We believe that in order to become a professional in the organizational field, students must be exposed to the actual challe​nges organizations face today. We therefore collaborate with dozens of companies who open their doors to us and enable our students to experience fir​st-hand how theories are put into practice.

Career Development

We believe that building a meaningful career is a complex process. During the two-year program students explore various career routes and options, and we put special emphasis on assisting each and every one of them in developing their individual skills and in achieving their career goals.
