Sacramento State is joining a growing list of American institutions exporting their classrooms to Asia.
The university plans to launch an MBA program in Singapore in November. The program would be the first of its kind for California State University, Sacramento.
"It's very difficult today to operate in isolation," said Sanjay Varshney, dean of the College of Business Administration. "This is consistent with our efforts to expand our name recognition beyond the region."
Despite the CSU system's budget woes, Varshney said the move overseas makes sense, citing increased demand for U.S. academic credentials.
