"I chose to go back for my MBA very late in my career as I was 50 when I enrolled. I truly wanted a University experience with a mix of both true academicians, and faculty with actual business experience; UNM Anderson provided both. The entire faculty was very approachable, making the experience memorable and enjoyable. My Anderson experience really prepared me for the professional faculty position that I have had since 2009. This insight allows me to connect with the students in a way that I believe makes me more effective in both my banking career as well as my faculty position."
