MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS THAT “ROCK” TO BE FEATURED AT INFORMATION SESSION

April 16, 2009

Anderson Event
Albuquerque, N.M.--The Department of Marketing, Information, and Decision Sciences at UNM's Anderson School of Management is hosting an information session, on April 20, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Student Marketing Center at the Anderson School of Management. The event is open to anyone interested in one or more of the four undergraduate and graduate management concentrations offered by the department: information assurance, management information systems, marketing management, and operations management.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn about the requirements for each concentration, tour student facilities, and meet one on one with faculty and current students. In addition, aspiring rock stars can play the Rock Band video game. Pizza and drinks will be provided. The event is free and registration is not required.

Many of the courses offered in these concentrations provide students real world experiences that eventually lead to exciting professional careers. Graduate students in the information assurance program, for example, may apply for enrollment in a 3-credit hour course where they work with the white collar crime unit of either the Albuquerque Police Department or Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department. Another example of experiential learning is the supply chains projects course taught by Howard Kraye. His students are provided $1000 to develop a prototype product, produce it using at least two international suppliers, and finally, market it at a profit.
