Duke's business school to announce expansion plan

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Duke University's business school will announce an expansion plan that will establish a network of campuses around the world to conduct research and deliver programs.

The expansion announcement is scheduled for Monday on the campus of the Fuqua School of Business during a celebration highlighting the cultures of the school's new host countries.

This network will connect Duke's research and teaching activities in key economic and cultural centers such as New Delhi, India; St. Petersburg, Russia; Dubai, UAE; London, UK; and Shanghai, China, as well as the Durham campus.

Fuqua's first regional partnership, with the Graduate School of Management in St. Petersburg, Russia, is to be announced at the launch event. Fuqua will announce its plans for the location in New Delhi, India, in October.
