Economic relations between Germany and Israel are close and becoming increasingly important, especially in light of the challenges of digitization. With Mannheim Business School and the Arison School of Business at IDC Herzliya, two leading institutions have joined forces to design a unique, one-year, full-time master’s program. Both partners enjoy a good reputation worldwide. IDC Herzliya is considered one of the top universities in Israel, bringing together leading experts in artificial intelligence, big data, innovation and entrepreneurship. The University of Mannheim is one of the leading European universities in business, economics and social sciences.
Your Master in Management Analytics journey will start at the Arison School of Business at IDC Herzliya. In the first part of the program, you will learn the fundamentals of analytics and experience the entrepreneurial spirit of local startups. The startup nation Israel is internationally renowned for its entrepreneurship, innovation, and data-driven startup culture. With nine million inhabitants and 6,000 startups, it has the highest number of startups per capita worldwide.
The second part of the master’s program will take you to Mannheim. The “grid city” in the heart of the German and European economy is regarded as the birthplace of many game-changing ideas. For example, the car and the bike were invented here. Global leaders such as BASF, SAP HeidelbergCement or Roche Diagnostics are headquartered in the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region, whose center is Mannheim. Here, you will gain a sound understanding of general management and the latest management tools and concepts. Find out more about the Mannheim region and campus here.
The new degree program is intended to further intensify academic and social relations between the two countries and simultaneously serve as a clear signal of German-Israeli friendship. Graduates will not only be internationally versed young executives and data analysis experts, but also key ambassadors of German-Israeli relations around the world.
Founded in 1994 as Israel’s first private, not-for-profit institution of higher education, IDC has won international recognition and drawn some of the finest lecturers and researchers from around the world.
IDC and its Arison School of Business are dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in education and research and the training of future leaders by providing educational programs that combine academic study with practical, hands-on training and encouragement for innovative thinking, preparing executives for the modern business world and its constantly shifting challenges.

Our students are imbued with a commitment to excellence and original thinking. ‘The university of the future,’ as we see it, has to prepare its students for a constantly changing world by being able to innovate skillfully, to dare, and to initiate. We believe that the knowledge and tools acquired at IDC support personal and professional goal fulfillment and enable our graduates to tackle the challenges of our global reality.” (Prof. Reichman, President and Founder of IDC Herzliya)
