TEMPE — Arizona State University President Michael Crow says the school may be ready to establish a presence in the Los Angeles area soon.

He told a chamber of commerce luncheon last week ASU may be close to opening an office in Santa Monica soon and if a deal can be found on a building, the school will offer classes that would house entrepreneurs in residence, as well as technology-transfer workers and student recruiters.

The Arizona Republic ( reports ASU is also looking at expanding its global reach. Crow mentioned that negotiations are under way for a project in the United Arab Emirates, but he did not elaborate.

The school has operated a business school in Shanghai, China, since 2003 with 220 students.
