Hadassah Academic College
Located in downtown Jerusalem, HAC is a non-profit, non-governmental public institution of higher learning. Since its accreditation in 1996, HAC has strived for a high level of academic training and is now consistently ranked among Israel’s best colleges. HAC is known for its career-focused and innovative teaching methods, as well as its diverse culture and is one of the only colleges to support Arab, Muslim, and Jewish students all under one roof.
One-half of the College’s students are the first in their family to pursue a college education, and over 60% come from challenging, socio-economic backgrounds. Seventy percent of the students are women. Twenty percent of the students are Christian and Muslim Arabs.
HAC measures its success by the ability of its graduates to secure jobs with a future upon graduation. The College has the highest job placement rate (85%) of any college or university in Israel, and the highest rate of student retention (92%).
