Press Release


June 11, 2008

(Albuquerque, NM) Students in the Anderson School of Management’s Professional Masters of Business Administration Program (PMBA), launched in 2006 at the Intel facility in Rio Rancho, will graduate in December 2008. For the past two years Intel has been a key factor in the success of this program by offering classroom space to the PMBA students. At the completion of this program the Anderson School, in conjunction with UNM West, will begin serving a broader segment of the West Side population by offering graduate management education courses in a more flexible format.

Anderson and UNM West will continue to offer core graduate level classes each semester on the West Side. Each class will meet one night per week from 5:30 – 8:15 p.m. Upon completing the MBA admission requirements, students may begin the program in any semester and will pay the same tuition as students attending MBA classes on main campus.

Two thirds of the MBA program - the 11 core classes - will now be offered at UNM West located at 2600 The American Road, Suite 250 in Rio Rancho. Students will select and complete fifteen credit hours from one of the 11 MBA concentrations offered on main campus. The program is directed toward students who need the flexibility of controlling their own schedule and setting their own pace of graduate education. Students may take as few as one class per semester or may accelerate their program by taking classes both on the West Side and on main campus.

This new flexible format of graduate management education shows the commitment by the University of New Mexico and the Anderson School of Management to serving students on the fast-growing West Side.
