Who is the target audience for this program?
The Birthright Israel Excel program is a fast-paced, demanding and intellectually stimulating Fellowship targeting future Jewish leaders.
We look for candidates with excellent quantitative, analytical and communication skills. Candidates should be hard working, adaptable, able to manage projects independently and ready to assume a high level of responsibility as a member of a team. A well-rounded academic background with coursework in finance or economics is recommended. Candidates must demonstrate academic strength – a minimum 3.0 GPA, strong SAT/ACT scores (US applicants), demonstrated leadership skills and a high energy level.
If you don't have a strong financial or business background, you must be able to demonstrate your quantitative aptitude, both scholastically and practically (former jobs, for example).
