Press Release


November 7, 2002

The Albuquerque Journal is publishing a series of articles authored by faculty members at The Robert O. Anderson Schools of Management and School of Public Administration at The University of New Mexico. The articles, which focus on a variety of topics that reflect today's ever-changing business climate, are being published on a bi-weekly basis in Thursday's Business Outlook supplement to the Journal.

Jeanne M. Logsdon, Regents Professor at The Anderson Schools, kicked off the series on October 10th with a column that responded to recent public outrage at major corporate scandals: "Can Successful Managers Be Ethical?" Jana Hranaiova, Assistant Professor of Finance, followed up on October 24th with an article that addressed the post-Enron corporate world, specifically the use of stock options to compensate executives and employees and the adverse incentives such choices may offer.

Over the next two months, other Anderson Schools faculty will address topics such as the importance of technology in New Mexico's economic development, actions to take against e-mail spam and computer viruses, the responsibilities of a public company's board members, management insights offered by our favorite Hollywood flicks, what you should know about the stock recommendations provided by brokerage research analysts, and the practical role theory plays in assisting managers with reaching their goals.

Avi Shama, Rutledge Professor of Management at The Anderson Schools, who initiated this joint venture with the Journal said, "This is a good way for our faculty to serve the New Mexico community with their knowledge and expertise."

If there is a particular topic you would like to see addressed, or if you have any questions for the faculty columnists, please email Mike Murphy at the Albuquerque Journal at The Journal will publish the answers to your questions in an upcoming "Ask the ASM Faculty" column.
