The Anderson Schools' Accounting Department Asks for Input From New Mexico's Accounting Community

January 22, 2002

ALBUQUERQUE - The Accounting Department at The Anderson Schools of Management and the New Mexico Society of CPAs are holding a series of town hall meetings to solicit input and commentary from accounting professionals throughout the state. These meetings will be used to plan upcoming changes in the MBA accounting curriculum and the Master of Accounting curriculum at The Anderson Schools, to take effect in the fall of 2003.

Accounting professor James Hamill states, "If there's one thing we hear from almost all members...it's the shortage of trained personnel to meet their business needs. These curriculum changes will have a long-term impact on both the availability and the skills of future entrants into the profession."
