Duke's Fuqua School of Business is opening campuses in St. Petersburg, London, Shanghai, Dubai, and New Delhi that will exceed the "breadth and scale" of any other U.S. business program overseas, the Chronicle reports.
At the five sites, Duke plans to offer M.B.A. programs and support research while also embedding itself into the local environment and economy. It is calling the program "the first legitimately global business school."
The five sites will be part of Duke's Cross-Continent program, which will send M.B.A. students starting August 2009 to each of the five sites for a week or two at a time as part of their business school education.
More details of each site will be rolled out in the next several months.
