American Universities in Qatar

I recently watched an excellent 60 Minutes piece on the resource rich nation of Qatar. This led me to want to learn more about Education City, a Qatar initiative that brings American Universities to Qatar. The draw for these universitities is that ALL facilities are paid for, which gives many of these schools the latest technologies and resources. A very insightful video piece by PBS on Education City can be seen here.

Since I currently work in study abroad for Boston University here in Sydney, I was curious which American Universities have satellite campuses in Qatar. Here is the list with links.

Carnegie Mellon
Cornell University
Georgetown
Northwestern
Texas A&M
Virgina Commonwealth
