Personal recommendation
Recanati School of Business Administration receives a clear recommendation from me. May I add that the exchange experience you will receive by going to Israel will be exceptional. You will learn to understand different cultures, and gain insight into the political situation faced by the Israelis and the Palestinians. An extremely interesting experience.

Most Israelis speak a fairly understandable English. The teachers mostly have international experience, and hence their command of the English language is good.

Personal comments
Accommodation is in general expensive in Tel Aviv. Opt for an apartment down town, close to the beach. I can recommend to share an apartment with other exchange students, and you should contact all participants in the exchange program prior to arriving in Tel Aviv.
