Brandeis International Business School is getting ready to welcome 15 Israeli life sciences companies to the school on October 18 and 19 as part of what organizers are calling a summit between Israeli and local companies seeking collaborations between the two clusters.

“If they could all do what they say they can do, they would make a tremendous difference in solving healthcare problems,” Bruce R. Magid, dean of Brandeis International Business School, said about the Israeli companies set to attend. Magid said the majority — 75 percent — of the students in the International Business School are from outside the U.S., and the school has the highest number of Fulbright Scholars studying in the U.S. of any business school. Magid is hoping an increasing number of conferences featuring foreign firms, both in the alternative energy and life sciences fields, will translate into research opportunities and jobs for the school’s graduates.
