February 5, 2001

ALBUQUERQUE – The Anderson Schools of Management is opening its classroom doors to the public twice in February for its Executive Speakers Series.

Across the disciplines that make up business education at The Schools, faculty will be opening their classroom guest lectures to the community for a no-cost learning experience. “The Executive Speakers Series is an important way for us to share the resources of The Anderson Schools with business leaders in the community interested in staying in touch with the latest issues,” said Howard L. Smith, Dean. “We had a great success with our first open event, featuring Secretary of Economic Development John Garcia, and we are looking forward to this month’s offerings.”

The next in this series is scheduled for Monday, February 19 from 4-6:30 p.m. and will feature special guest lecturer Al Romig, Vice President for Science, Technology and Components and Chief Technology Officer at Sandia National Laboratories. Romig is a guest in the first-time class offering of Professor Suleiman Kassicieh, a semester-long exploration of economic development issues in the state. Romig will be addressing how technology transfer initiatives from the national laboratories directly and indirectly affect economic development in New Mexico. The class will be in the Graduate School of Management Building, room 232.

On Thursday, February 22 from 12:30 to 1:45 p.m., Deane Waldman of the Children’s Hospital of New Mexico will be speaking to The Anderson Schools’ seminar on quality management. Waldman, an MD/MBA, is doing research on the culture of medicine and how that culture impacts the delivery of healthcare. “His work is a direct reflection on issues of quality and he will bring a dynamic perspective that’s applicable to any organization,” said professor Steven Yourstone, the faculty member teaching the course. The open program will be in The Anderson Schools of Management, room 1064.
