1. The Hebrew University's Faculties and Schools

Founded by visionaries. Propelled forward by innovation.

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem is one of the world’s most distinguished academic and research institutions. The university is located in Israel, but its work transforms our world. Its students, faculty, and alumni have won eight Nobel Prizes, developed cures for diseases, and spawned innovation that has led to more than 8,900 patents. We think our founding fathers, Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud, Chaim Weizmann, and Martin Buber would be quite proud.
