SAIPAN, CNMI (Marianas Variety, Jan. 3) – The University of Hawaii wants former Northern Marianas College President Agnes M. McPhetres to become its liaison officer in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands for its neighbor island master of business administration program.

McPhetres, in an interview yesterday, confirmed the job offer, but said they were still negotiating her contract.

She said there are already 12 individuals who have applied for the university’s neighbor island master of business administration program.

"These are individuals who have completed baccalaureate and other masters programs in business administration," she said, adding that the university is now reviewing applications from the island.

McPhetres said a representative from the university will be on island today to meet with her.

Beginning this spring, the University of Hawaii’s College of Business Administration will offer the program at NMC using video over Internet protocol technology.

Courses taught at the university’s Manoa campus will be broadcast to Maui, Kauai, Kailua-Kona and Saipan.

To qualify for the program, a student must have a minimum 2.7 GPA (3.0 for international students) for the last 2 years of undergraduate work, and two or more years of work experience following the completion of his bachelor’s degree.

Applicants for the program must take the graduate management admission test, a four-hour, computer-generated examination.
