DEADLINE LOOMS FOR UNM’S FIRST RIO RANCHO MBA

August 4, 2006

(Albuquerque, NM) With classes beginning in early September, the final deadline to apply for the Anderson Schools of Management’s new professional evening MBA (PMBA) program is Friday, August 25. The inaugural PMBA class (2006-2008) will be hosted by Intel Corporation at its Rio Rancho facility and is endorsed by the Rio Rancho Regional Chamber of Commerce. PMBA will closely mirror Anderson’s popular executive, on-campus, weekend MBA program.

“We have an impressive group of PMBA applicants,” says Kate Livingston, Anderson Schools Associate Dean for Executive Education. “We’ve seen applicants from within Intel, but we’ve also seen a large number from other organizations. Candidates are telling us that they’re excited to be a part of the inaugural class. With PMBA, we’ve made it possible for people living or working on the west side to earn an MBA from UNM that is convenient, affordable, and well-respected.”

PMBA admission requirements include an undergraduate degree, at least one year of full-time work experience, satisfactory Graduate Management Admission Test scores (candidates with advanced degrees may request a waiver), and a personal interview. The cost of the program for the 2006-2008 class is $24,960, prorated over the 28 months. Additional information is available online at pmba.mgt.unm.edu, by email from pmba@mgt.unm.edu, or by phone at (505) 277-2525.
