Tel Aviv is frequently ranked as one of the top 5 cities worldwide for innovation and business development. Israel is recognized internationally as “startup nation” with a startup ratio of 1 per 1,400 people, ranking the country as #1 worldwide. The initial weeks of this 6-credit-hour study abroad include cultural visits, classroom activities at Tel Aviv University, and visits to successful local businesses.
