Program Description:

Israel Study Abroad Program

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Olin students may participate in a traditional study abroad experience through an academic exchange program between the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, Israel (a suburb of Tel Aviv). You typically earn 12-16 units at IDC, allowing you to continue your studies without disruption. Students may apply for admission for either fall or spring of their junior year.

Students must earn a minimum of 14 WUSTL equivalent credit by completing courses chosen from the offerings at UDC. For a list of courses at IDC, click here. For WUSTL course equivalents, click here.

SEMESTERS OFFERED

Fall and Spring semester. Dates depend on the Jewish calendar. Contact the BSBA Director of International Programs for exact dates.

ORIENTATION PROGRAM

All students participating in Olin semester programs are required to enroll and participate in pre-departure (INTL 300A, 1 credit) and post-departure (INTL300B, 0.5 credit online while abroad) coursework. A non-credit pre-departure orientation will be required for all students on fall programs.

An on-site orientation program is scheduled during the first week of the program.

ELIGIBILITY

The International Internship Programs are open to BSBA students and second majors in the Business School. BSBA students must have completed all core business subjects (except OSCM 230 and 356). There is a minimum GPA requirement of a 3.0 in your overall course work and a 3.0 in your professional course work.

Selection is based on maturity, seriousness of purpose, and appropriateness of match between program and applicant. Students on disciplinary probation during program period are not eligible. You must not only meet the minimum eligibility criteria, but also show the type of intellectual curiosity, personal maturity, academic rationale and social flexibility necessary for a successful study abroad experience.

INTERNATIONAL PARTNER - IDC

The Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya, founded over a decade ago by Prof. Uriel Reichman, is one of the leading and most prestigious academic institutions in Israel today. Modeled on distinguished private universities in the United States, IDC is a non-profit corporate entity, receiving no direct government subsidies, and dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in research and education.
IDC seeks to train the future leaders of Israel and to nurture the business, political, and judicial leadership of the highest caliber. In order to achieve these goals, the IDC provides a unique and innovative interdisciplinary education, combining academic study with practical training. Since its inception in 1994, world-class faculty from leading universities in Israel and around the world have contributed their rich experience to research, develop, enhance, and teach at the IDC.
Students take classes in English through the The Raphael Recanati International School (RRIS), which was was established in order to allow students from around the world to benefit from the excellent academic programs at IDC Herzliya by offering several of these programs in English.

HOUSING AND MEALS

Students will live in flats (apartments). Arrangements for these flats are coordinated through an agreement between Olin and IDC.

PASSPORT

If you don't have your passport, you should start this process once you submit your application.

Visa

It is required by the Israeli government that overseas students must obtain a proper Student Visa to study in Israel. Details of this process will be reviewed in INTL 300A.

HTH INSURANCE

Overseas Programs will enroll all WU-approved study abroad students in a basic accident and sickness plan through HTH Worldwide, a leading provider of international health insurance. This plan should be seen as supplemental to the student’s existing domestic health coverage, not as a replacement. We do not recommend a reduction or suspension of existing domestic coverage in light of enrollment in HTH insurance. For more information, click here.

TUITION AND FEES

Students are assessed the current WU tuition rate, the current WU Health Fee, and charges for housing. These fees are paid directly to Washington University (with the exception of housing). If you are a financial aid recipient, then your financial aid will apply toward these charges.

Exchange rate information is available at: http://www.oanda.com/
