In the press release announcing the closure of the George Mason University RAK Campus from May 2009, there was a comment that their UAE partner, Education RAK (EDRAK) was planning to establish a new American University in Ras Al Khaimah (AU-RAK), and GMU might act in a consultative role. The AURAK website says that a memorandum to establish a university was signed on 01 November 2007 between the RAK Crown Prince, HH Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qassimi, and the CEO of Khoie Group, Mr Frank Khoie. As the RAK American School, also established by Khoie Group, didn't last long, there might be a question mark about Khoie Group still being involved in the RAK University project. No further information available at this stage.
