at University of Haifa, Israel
For decades, the State of Israel has been addressing complex national security challenges. Designed in partnership with Israel's globally renowned National Security College, our International program in National Security introduces students to pressing, complex, real-time national security dilemmas, conflicts, and processes in Israel and other regions. The program is ideal for students pursuing a career in governmental, security, and private organizations, who wish to explore and address strategic social, political, ethical, diplomatic, economic, and military dimensions of national security.
Our program has been developed in collaboration with Israel’s National Security College, IDF's highest course of study and the world's leading educational institution for military, intelligence, and government executives from Europe, America, and Asia. We offer:
Theoretical knowledge alongside practical tools and skills to address complex national security challenges and processes in both private and public sectors
Fascinating case studies on national security mistakes, learning curves and achievements which portray Israel's unique role in the Middle East.
