UNM ANDERSON IS THE 4TH RANKED GRADUATE BUSINESS SCHOOL IN THE NATION FOR HISPANIC STUDENTS

August 22, 2014

(Albuquerque, NM) Hispanic Business Magazine ranked the UNM Anderson School of Management as the fourth best postgraduate business school in the nation for Hispanic students in 2014. The #4 ranking marks the fifth year in a row that the Anderson School has received a top ten ranking from the magazine.

Hispanic students represent 36% of those enrolled in the MBA programs at UNM Anderson. Student groups such as the Association of Latino Professionals in Finance and Accounting provide Hispanic students with a cultural community encouraging excellence in scholarship and service.

Craig White, Interim Dean of the Anderson School, says being recognized as the fourth best graduate business school in the nation for Hispanics is a major accomplishment.

"Hispanic students are important contributors to the diverse educational experience at the Anderson School," said Dean White. "The diversity of the student body is reflective of the 21st century workforce. Their education and success is key to the future prospects of New Mexico and the country."

The three schools ahead of UNM Anderson in the Hispanic Business Magazine rankings are The University of Texas at El Paso, New York University and the University of Texas at Austin, respectively.

Each year, Hispanic Business Magazine measures and ranks the effectiveness of the nationís universities in attracting Hispanic students. Enrollment is just one piece of the overall rankings. Schools must also rank high in other categories, including faculty numbers and programs to attract and retain Hispanic students.
