Program for International Students at Jerusalem College of Technology
Torah Way of Doing Business
Jerusalem College of Technology (JCT) is one of the few academic institutions in Israel to offer both academic tracks and Yeshiva studies for international students. Men and women study separately in two campuses (Machon Lev and Machon Tal respectively). In addition to in-class learning, students also take part in social activities, volunteer work, tours around Israel and more. As for now, JCT offers international students a year-long program including various courses in technology, economics and business, and a full B.A. in business management program
The students of JCT attend Yeshiva studies in English during the morning and academic studies in the afternoon. Although both Yeshiva and academic classes are held in English, participants may take Yeshiva classes in Hebrew or take Hebrew lessons (Ulpan) if they choose to do so. Those who wish to study in a Yeshiva elsewhere may attend only the academic studies in a special concentrated program held on Thursdays and Fridays.
A Year in Israel
In the year-long track
students accomplish introductory courses in business management and in technology. Afterwards, they continue to study in their home countries, in institutions that recognize the credits earned in JCT. Many of the courses are credited in most universities and colleges in the US.
A Full Academic Program
The first year of the full undergraduate program
is similar to the One Year in Israel Track with one exception; students must also take classes in Hebrew (Ulpan). After completing the first year students continue to attend both Yeshiva classes and academic courses until fulfilling their studies, but in the following three years most of the courses are taught in Hebrew.
* Linear Algebra
* Business Ethics
* Financial Accounting
* Principles of Finance
* Environmental Studies
* Marketing Management
* Managerial Accounting
* Principles of Management
* Mathematics for Business
* Micro and Macro Economics
* Internet Programming and Design
Faculty members include both orthodox rabbis and renowned professors. Many of the professors either studied or taught outside of Israel. Most professors in the international program studied in the US.
All applicants must submit their high-school diploma and test scores in the SATs, Psychometric Test or other standardized exams. The program requires prior knowledge in math. If applicants did not graduate from high school with a mark of 75 or above (B-) they will be required to take additional math courses.
Graduates of the full academic track receive from Jerusalem College of Technology a B.A. in Business Management. Those who completed the year-long track get academic credits for the courses they took.
