ISRAEL - Five Universities Among Top 50

Arno Froese

The 2022 PitchBook study ranked programs across categories such as top 100 undergraduate programs, top 100 graduate programs, top 50 undergrad programs for female founders, and top 50 graduate programs for female founders. 

In the ranking for undergraduate programs, Tel Aviv University came in at 7th place, up one spot from the previous four years when it placed 8th; the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology dropped to 15th place, down three spots from 12th, a ranking it held for the previous two years; the Hebrew University of Jerusalem held its spot at No. 31 for the second consecutive year; Reichman University (formerly the IDC) was a newcomer to this list, ranking in 38th place, and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev dropped to the 45th spot, down one from 2021.

Tel Aviv University and its graduate programs came in 14th on this list, Hebrew University 32nd and Technion 36th among the top 50. Bar Ilan University ranked 72nd and Ben-Gurion University 78th. The Weizmann Institute of Science ranked 97th for graduate programs.

Stanford, Harvard, and MIT came in first, second, and third, respectively, 1 November 2022

Arno's Commentary

Israel’s intellectual might is well-known, but being named in the top 50 universities in the world that produce entrepreneurs, is surprising. One must consider that this is a relatively new country, mostly surrounded by enemies who have declared their intent to destroy the Jewish State—but to this day have been unsuccessful.

Right in the beginning in Genesis 50, when Joseph made himself known to his brethren who sold him into slavery, he had this to say: “But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive” (verse 20).
