Everyone -

I was at Duke watching the set up for our upcoming big announcement, and they are pulling out the stops!

Come see what the fuss is about: http://www.fuqua.duke.edu/globalwebcast/

Are they going to open so many business schools??? Do you think it will be successful ?

I dont really get it...are they just announcing partnering with other schools or are they opening a bunch of new schools.

It seems like this program isn't necessarily geared towards the students that would be attending the normal daytime MBA. Is it even relevant if you would have been a normal daytime MBA?

I'm confused too.

The way I understand it is that they are opening 5 campuses around the world (China, India, Russia, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom). All of the programs will be offered at all of the campuses. But the big deal is the cross continent program that lets you study at each location and then finishing up at the North Carolina campus.

That's pretty much how I understand it as well. I imagine once the programs are fully setup and functional there might be more opportunities to spend a semester studying at the alternate campuses for the Daytime students. In the announcement they mentioned something about having partners at each location....I'm curious as to what role those folks will play....

I think the dancers were the oddest part of the whole video...bonus points if those were students though.

I got the whole ideal of incorporating the 5 countries, but the beginning was a little weird. It just started with Kali the Goddess of time and change who is also associated with death and destruction and sometimes presented as dark and violent. I think maybe their should have been some type of introduction.

While the dancers were strange (wasn't the biggest fan, the first one involving the gals in blue was odd and had a strange cabaret vibe)...I have to say it's the first b-school related video I've seen that involves a Beatles cover band. :wink:

It would be pretty swell if they leveraged these campuses for more opportunities to study abroad for the full-time day students - like something over the December breaks, etc.

I agree. I'm still kinda confused what the new campuses mean for the everyday MBA student.
