The Israeli Silicon Valley may have been the turning point to Israel’s economic success. And Israel in its entirety has benefited as per capita income is close to the US per capita income. Universities have a history of providing learning abroad opportunities/ internships, and USC does not seem to capitalize on creating partnerships with Israeli startups. According to technology news, Israeli startups were sold for $9 billion in 2015. Many if not all of these startups have increased the wealth for many people and also created good paying jobs. At this time, according to news.usc, USC is the top choice for Jewish students. Meanwhile, USC doesn’t seem to be reaching out to Israeli-based companies for collaborative projects. Under the UCLA program/ internship, students are given opportunities to consult actual startups in places like Isreal. Why are we not beating UCLA in this front as well?
