College Chain From India Expanding Into U.S.

But Amity University’s proposal to buy a for-profit art college near Boston has run into opposition from Massachusetts’s attorney general, who is asking the state’s Board of Higher Education to block the sale.

“We are very, very skeptical about this,” Attorney General Maura Healey is quoted as saying. “It's hard to imagine that this outfit from overseas, which has never done any education work here in this country, is well suited to provide any kind of education to these students.”
