Empowering People Who Power Israel
Ono prepares our students with analytical tools to prosper in an increasingly sophisticated world. Our graduates are now serving at the top levels of Israeli society – in government, business, law, education, social welfare, healthcare, music, and sports.
Outstanding Student Employment Rates
Because our curriculum is customized based on real-world needs, most Ono graduates find employment shortly after graduation. Nearly 100% of our Ethiopian-Israeli graduates and 85% of our Ultra-Orthodox commence their careers quickly after graduation.
Innovating New Programs
Our success rates are due to Ono’s focus on meeting the needs of the job market. From the first sports therapy program to the first MA in Digital Strategy, Ono Academic College is at the forefront of education, developing new programs in areas that employers seek. In fact, many programs, such as our BA in Advertising and Marketing Communications, are only offered at Ono.
Meeting Contemporary Needs
Ono’s ground-breaking Multicultural Jewish Studies program trains teachers to discover and teach pluralistic approaches to Judaism. Our Law School’s clinics and social outreach align with Ono’s mission of social unification. Our programs at the Jerusalem campus bring technology and social issues like domestic abuse to Ultra-Orthodox and Arab communities

This new campus, located in the center of Israel, slated to open in 2023, will meet the growing demands for Ono’s unique educational approach.
