Eight US universities to open study abroad programs in Israel

The Jewish Agency announced on Tuesday that study-abroad programs in Israel will be launched in eight of America's top universities in 2011 and 2012. “We want to double the number of students from abroad studying in Israel from 1,500 to 3,000 in the next two to three years,” said Avi Rubel, MASA Israel North American director. “Universities in the US are increasingly trying to set up programs in other countries so that more of their students have a diverse menu of studying abroad. Up until now the program has mostly been open in Jewish studies, but not business [studies], for example. So what we’re trying to do is create partnerships that will bring new students in these initiates.”
