CUNY - Zicklin Partners with Israeli School to Offer New Dual MBA

New joint program will emphasize finance and entrepreneurship, students will attend classes in New York and in Israel

The City University of New York's Zicklin School of Business has partnered with the College of Management Academic Studies (COMAS) in Israel to launch a new dual MBA program.

The new joint program will emphasize finance and entrepreneurship, leveraging each location's unique qualities: New York City as a financial hub and Israel as a "startup nation."

The MBA's curriculum will cover a range of topics, with courses in macroeconomics, entrepreneurship, data mining, investment analysis, and more.

The program will be 15 months long and span four semesters. The majority of the new MBA program—three semesters—will be delivered on COMAS' campus in Israel, with classes held in a half-day format twice a week. There will also be an intensive summer semester at the CUNY campus in New York City, which classes held five days a week over four weeks.

To apply for the new dual MBA, candidates should have an undergraduate degree with at least a B average and four or more years of work experience. Additionally, two letters of recommendation, fluent English-language skills, and a time allocation approval letter from a current employer will also be required.

The dual MBA is set to launch in October 2015. For more information, please see Zicklin's press release announcing the launch of the new dual MBA.

CUNY - Zicklin is listed by FIND MBA as one of the top ten business schools in New York.
