WSJ: You now have these eight global classes. What does that entail?
Mr. Robertson: They're in the U.K., Israel, India, China, South Africa and Brazil. The courses would be relevant to that environment. So as we're teaching in Brazil it's about sustainability, and when we're teaching in Israel it's about technology and one of the courses in India is about health care in India and what we can learn from that experience.
