This Global Immersion course provides students with knowledge, insights, and experiences with respect to Israel. The course's in-class meetings and its one week visit to Israel will cover such topics as Israel's leadership, politics, economics, business innovation, geography, and culture. Students will gain an understanding of Israel's unique circumstances and achievements, ethnic and religious diversity, challenges, and opportunities. Students will learn through the combination of academic learnings, class presenters, visits with government and business leaders, and on-the-ground experiences with Israeli businesses, cultural and historical sites. Students will present their related analyses after returning from the course's Israel trip. This Global Immersion course begins with six two-hour sessions, followed by a one-week study trip to Israel (March 11-18), and concludes with a wrap up session on March 28. The course's pedagogy combines current examples, presentations, guest visits by leaders from business, government, and the media. Global Immersion Program classes bridge classroom lessons and business practices in another country. These three credit classes meet for half a term in New York prior to a one week visit to the country of focus where students will meet with business executives and government officials while working on team projects. The course spans BOTH the A and B terms (with final class session on March 28). The GIP fee of $1950 provides students with double occupancy lodging, ground transportation and some meals It does not cover roundtrip international airfare. Attendance both in New York and in-country and regular participation are a crucial part of the learning experience and as such attendance is mandatory. Unexcused absences are highly frowned upon and will have negative consequences on class grade, and students who have expected conflicts should not apply for this course. Students who miss the first class meeting may be removed from the course. No program fee refunds will be given after the add/drop period has closed.
