United States Universities’ Global Expansion

U.S. Universities Rush to Up Educational Outposts Abroad, N.Y. Times, February 10, 2008.

U.S. universities are going global and who says expansion is just for big business.  Imagine Georgetown or George Mason coming to a Persian desert near you and offering accounting classes in Abu Dhabi.  Outposts abroad are becoming the new battleground for university expansion worldwide.  The demand for American education is huge and has become a hot commodity in the global market.  Are the global proponents of global expansion being too altruistic and benevolent?  If the publicly funded universities fail abroad, will you be left footing the bill in your home state?
