The University Center at Pālamanui and the Shidler College of Business (University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa) will host a community informational meeting for the Fall 2016 Neighbor Island cohort program in Kona on Thursday, January 28. The meeting will focus on the Distance Learning Executive MBA and the Masters of Human Resource Management (MHRM) programs offered by Shidler.

The Distance Learning Executive MBA program combines intensive residential study modules at UH Mānoa augmented with state-of-the-art distance learning technology that transmits video and audio through the internet in real time.
