Anderson Schools Move Up to 4th in National Ranking

September 8, 2003

For the fourth consecutive year, The Anderson Schools of Management at The University of New Mexico have been ranked as one of the Top 25 MBA Schools for Hispanics by Hispanic Business Magazine. The September 2003 issue of the magazine ranks The Anderson Schools 4th in the nation, following the University of Texas - Austin, Yale and Stanford, and ahead of such stalwart institutions as the University of California -Berkeley, the University of North Carolina, Dartmouth, and Columbia University.

In its review of The Schools, the magazine pointed particularly to the "active involvement of faculty and students in the Hispanic Business Students Association and the Association of Latino Professionals in Finance and Accounting," as evidence of the Schools' commitment to "provide Hispanic students with a cultural community encouraging excellence in scholarship and service." The Schools' superior job placement rates were also cited as a factor in the decision.

The Anderson Schools have moved up every year since their first appearance in the Top 10, placing 10th in 2000, 8th in 2001, and 6th in 2002.
