Carnegie Mellon U. Suspends Master’s Program in Greece

Carnegie Mellon University is suspending a master’s program in Athens, blaming Greece’s economic crisis, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The university said the program’s sponsor in Greece, Athens Information Technology, can no longer afford to support the program. For eight years, Carnegie Mellon’s college of engineering has offered a master’s of science in information networking in Greece. The program now enrolls about 15 students, who are receiving assistance to make sure they complete their degrees. Despite the suspension, the university’s other international programs in Qatar, India, and Portugal are doing well, the institution said.
