Northwestern College of Media and Communications, in Doha, Qatar

In recent years, Gulf states have begun to directly import U.S. institutions. One high profile effort is Qatar's Education City.

Six U.S. universities have contributed schools, including Cornell Medical School, Texas A & M's school of engineering and Carnegie Melon's business school. The latest addition in 2008 was Northwestern University in Qatar, which boasts both journalism and communications programs.

John Margolis is the Dean of Northwestern University in Qatar.
