IDC Herzliya

The Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya is Israel's first private Institution for Higher Education. Founded by renowned Israeli Professor, Uriel Reichman, in 1994. IDC Herzliya is a non-profit organization modeled after Ivy League schools in the U.S. IDC Herzliya's success has brought both international recognition and drawn some of the finest lecturers and researchers from around the world to our doorstep. Our faculty is dedicated to IDC Herzliya's primary goal: giving our students the tools they need to become leaders in all the Social Sciences fields both in Israel and abroad.

Leadership and social responsibility are elements we at IDC Herzliya feel are lacking in the Israeli Higher Education system. These elements, coupled with the constant striving for our students' academic and personal excellence, underlie our programs and activities. IDC Herzliya is an organization dedicated to improving Israel and Israeli society. In addition to the aforementioned goals, we are committed to dealing with issues of: Israel's social and moral agenda, constitutional and governmental reconstruction, economic growth based on a free enterprise system, reevaluation of Israel's diplomatic strategies and policies.

Approximately 6,500 students are currently enrolled in IDC Herzliya, divided between nine different schools: Radzyner School of Law, Arison School of Business, Efi Arazi School of Computer Science, Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy & Strategy, Sammy Ofer School of Communications, The School of Psychology, The School of Economics, School of Sustainability founded by the Israel Corp., ICL & Bazan, and Raphael Recanati International School.

Since its inception IDC Herzliya has chosen to make research a priority. There are currently 15 Research Institutes and Development Centers operating at IDC Herzliya.
