Home to ISRAMUN
The College of Management Academic Studies (COMAS) brought the exciting Model United Nations (MUN) format to Israel, and with its enthusiastic support local ISRAMUN societies have been founded in other Israeli universities and colleges, creating a lively, a-political community for students based on MUN values.
Founded in 1978, COMAS was the first non-subsidized, non-profit academic institution in Israel to be accredited by Israel’s Council for Higher Education. In 1986 the college was granted authorization to award a BA degree in Business Administration and Accounting. This marked a significant milestone in the history of COMAS, as well as in the democratization of Israeli higher education, previously dominated by seven universities.
Boasting 12,000 students and over 37,000 alumni, COMAS is now the largest college in Israel and has become a dynamic, innovative and driving force in the field of higher education.
Over the years, new academic departments and schools have been opened whose innovative approaches, commitment to academic excellence, as well as advanced research facilities, have attracted outstanding faculty members and talented students. The college now offers Bachelor and Master degrees in Business Administration, Law, Media, Economics, Organizational Development and Consulting, Computer Science, Behavioral Sciences, Family Studies, Interior Design and Psychology.
Over more than 3 decades, COMAS has achieved impressive growth thanks to its success in recognizing and meeting an authentic need: young Israelis’ desire for unique curricula and programs that combine professional knowledge with practical application, close ties between faculty and students, and small classes.
The college stresses the importance of maintaining close ties and ongoing collaborations between academia and industry (such as collaborative projects with hi-tech companies and medical product developers), and between academia and the community. In accordance with its vision of community involvement, COMAS is committed to leadership in the fields of social and environmental responsibility, as expressed in numerous mentoring programs, community outreach initiatives, and innovative environmental activities. COMAS involvement also extends to numerous collaborations with industry, in fields ranging from computer science to medical product development.
International Opportunities at COMAS
COMAS aspires to internationalize its campus and curriculum, like leading academic institutions throughout the world, for the benefit of students and faculty. We wish to offer the diverse and advanced global tools necessary to succeed in today’s competitive arena. To this end, we have established an Office for International Programs (OIP) that seeks to spearhead the internationalization process by, among its other activities, developing programs of special interest to overseas students, as well as creating opportunities for Israeli students to study abroad. As part of this effort, most COMAS faculties now offer courses with international content, many of them in English, catering to both Israeli and international students.
To realize our vision for all COMAS students to become international citizens who think globally while acting locally, and for COMAS to attain global leadership through international engagements, we seek to forge partnerships with select international institutions. Through these partnerships we aspire to enhance our international presence by reinforcing successful existing programs and promoting new ones in unique fields of knowledge and research.
We also invite foreign students and scholars to bring their distinctive perspectives to international conferences and seminars held on campus, to teach courses and to collaborate in research projects with local faculty members. We believe that a shared educational experience is mutually beneficial for both local and foreign students, teaching them to thrive and excel in an increasingly interconnected world.
