Named after Mickey Feldman
The School of Banking and Capital Market Studies at Netanya Academic College is the only authorized school in Israel to offer a bachelor's and master's degree program in finance, banking studies and capital market studies, under the Council for Higher Education’s certificate.
The school began operating in its current format in 2002 following the College's demand for a comprehensive financial program that would concentrate on a variety of theoretical and academic issues in banking with reference to the practical applications and services derived from them. In addition, the field has seen a growing requirement from financial and banking sector employees who wish to receive a professional and up-to-date response on various financial topics.
Due to dynamic technological changes and developments in the financial markets, the school makes sure to update its curriculum and the applicability of its content so that students in the program can find employment in the field when they are done with their studies. The training of professionals who specialize in finance, banking, and the capital market, with a combined academic and practical knowledge is a commodity in the financial and banking industry but no less in the Israeli economy as a whole.
The need for a dedicated school for the financial and banking professions stems from the significant changes and developments that have taken place in recent years in Israel and around the world. These changes are reflected in the introduction of new financial instruments, cyber, Fintech, business and banking intelligence, real estate and real estate projects, advanced technology including digital banking, and recently also the launch of internet banks. The changes are evident in the transformation of banks into a kind of financial supermarket that offers diverse financial services beyond the traditional services offered in the past.
The School of Banking and Capital Market Studies program is a unique financial program, the first-of-its-kind in Israel, parallel to other unique financial academic study tracks that already exist in Western countries around the world. During their studies, students will acquire a comprehensive education in finance, banking, and the capital market and will become well acquainted with the Israeli financial structure.
The Banking and Capital Market Studies program emphasizes practicality, up-to-dateness, and applicability and includes significant academic and practical added value. In addition to receiving a degree, students will receive a professional "mortgage counseling" certificate that will expand their employment opportunities. The school wishes to present students with an occupational future even during their studies, which is why it maintains many collaborations with diverse employment organizations including investment houses, pension funds, insurance companies, financial companies, banks credit companies, and economic companies. The graduates of the program have been well-integrated for over a decade in the world of employment and some have reached senior management positions in the financial sector.
This year, we opened a new B.A. study track at the School of Banking and Capital Markets- a program for private businesses in collaboration with the School of Business Administration. The program is tailored to business owners who are only available to take evening classes. The purpose of the program is to provide private businesses with a comprehensive and applicable financial envelope when dealing with various business entities, including banks, credit companies, the capital market, and investment houses. This is the school's contribution to the independent sector and business owners in Israel.
Graduates receive theoretical and practical knowledge in the fields of finance, banking, insurance, finance, management and marketing, equipped with the appropriate infrastructure that enables them to cope with future technological and business changes to the banking system. Graduates of the undergraduate program who wish to deepen their knowledge will be able to enroll in the college’s master’s degree in Banking and Capital Market Studies.
