MSU-Dubai: Year Two

By Scott Pohl, WKAR


EAST LANSING, MI – Michigan State University's campus in Dubai is now in its second year of operation.

Once regarded as the most prosperous economy in the middle east, there's been a downturn in the United Arab Emirates...including Dubai.

WKAR's Scott Pohl spoke this week with Brendan Mullan, executive director of MSU-Dubai, during a return visit to East Lansing.

Mullan says in year two, applications were up by 40%, and admissions rose by 34%...to about 100 students.

He sees MSU-Dubai as being positioned to benefit from an expected economic turnaround.
