ALBUQUERQUE – Hispanic Business Magazine ranked the UNM Anderson School of Management as the third best postgraduate school in the nation for Hispanic students. The #3 ranking is a jump for UNM Anderson from its seventh place ranking last year and marks the fourth year in a row that the Anderson School has received a top ten ranking from the magazine.
Hispanic students represent 35% of those enrolled in the MBA programs at UNM Anderson, a figure that reflects of the ethnic makeup of our state.
There is also an active population of faculty and students in the Hispanic Business Student Association and the Association of Latino Professionals in Finance and Accounting. These student groups provide Hispanic students with a cultural community encouraging excellence in scholarship and service.
Doug Brown, Dean of the Anderson School, says being recognized as the third best graduate business school in the nation for Hispanics is a major accomplishment.
"We are especially pleased with the rate of success of our Hispanic students, which is in line with the rest of the student body," said Brown.
The only two schools ahead of UNM Anderson in the Hispanic Business Magazine rankings are The University of Texas at El Paso and the University of California, Berkeley, respectively.
Each year, Hispanic Business Magazine measures and ranks the effectiveness of the nation’s universities in attracting Hispanic students. For more information on the rankings visit:http://www.hispanicbusiness.com
