School of Management & Economics

The MTA School of Management & Economics has become an influential force in Israel’s economic arena by rethinking traditional paradigms through the introduction of advance theories and models. As a result, many of our alumni occupy key leadership positions at government agencies, corporate stalwarts and entrepreneurial enterprises. Through research, teaching, and collaborations within the economic sector, the school is at the forefront of promoting a sustainable and socially-responsible Israeli economy.



Prof. Yoav Ganzach

Prof. Yoav Ganzach is a psychologist who is interested in social and economic behavior. His work focuses on basic psychological processes, such as decision making, knowledge acquisition, and attitude formation, and how those behaviors affect the landscape of modern society.

Yoav received his B.A. from Tel Aviv University, studied in a masters program at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and received his Ph.D. from Columbia University. He was a faculty member at the Hebrew University for seven years and then at Tel Aviv University for 24 years.

B.A. in Economics & Management

Head of Program : Dr. Shirit Katav-Hertz

offered specializations in:

  • Capital Market (with Real Estate studies)

  • Marketing and Entrepreneurship 

  • Applied Data Science 

The undergraduate program (B.A.) in Economics and Management combines and links these two areas of knowledge, which is both an economist's and a manager's advantage. Economics studies combine theories and their applications with the Israeli and the global economy and provide students with important skills (e.g. advanced Big Data analysis tools) that are advantageous when entering the job market.

The program in Economics and Management offers internships for high-achieving students in their third year, in various organizations in the business and public sectors. The internship is an opportunity to apply the curriculum while studying and to graduate with work experience, familiarity with roles and organizations, tying work relationships, and even a potential for integration into the organization upon graduation.
