The U.S.-Israel Immersion program, an experience offered by the U.S.- Israel Center on Innovation & Economic Sustainability at the Rady School, provides both Rady and Israeli students from diverse backgrounds the advantage to create cross-cultural networks that can lead to global innovative business developments. In many ways, the bonds the participants construct while immersed with cultures unlike their own also forges ties that both include and exceed the world of business.
Each year Israeli students travel to the United States for a week of opportunities to translate the technological advancements they witness into innovative projects of their own. The group is given the opportunity to connect with companies from the San Diego region. The various technologies and information the students learn about inspire the students to work on collaborative projects with potential real-world impact.
