U.S. News says that part-time business programs are vital for students who balance jobs while attending graduate school.  

"Part-time MBA students are an important and valued group in Anderson’s graduate program," says Acting Dean Shawn Berman. "Their ability to balance commitments brings perspectives that enrich the educational experience of all of our students."

UNM Anderson has recently made several changes that have increased student success in the part-time program. The school now offers many late afternoon and evening classes and it revised its advising hours outside of the normal workday to be accessible to all Anderson students.

"We have put a greater focus in meeting the needs of our part-time students and it is gratifying to see this recognized in the U.S. News rankings," says Dr. Berman.

The ranking information was collected during fall 2018 and early winter 2019 for the U.S. News annual statistical survey of part-time graduate programs.
