  • Bio: After I received my B.S. in Finance summa cum laude from the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth, I spent several years working as a Financial Analyst for Sovereign Bank in Boston, Massachusetts. In 2013, I received my PhD from the University of Connecticut and was thrilled to move back to New Mexico later that year to teach the fantastic students at Anderson.

    My recent research has focused on expanding our understanding of agency theory and the implications of executive compensation. I have also published several articles in International Finance, a field of increasing relevance in the globalized world of the coming decades. When not researching (or Finance-ing), I enjoy hiking, history, genealogy, astronomy, and many other (nerdy) hobbies.

  • Bio: Dr. Manuel (MJR) Montoya is an Associate Professor of Global Structures and International Management at the University of New Mexico's Anderson School of Management.

    He was born and raised in Mora, New Mexico, and received his B.A. in English Literature and Economics from the University of New Mexico. He has Master's degrees from Oxford University and NYU as a Truman Scholar and Rhodes Scholar. He received his Ph.D. at Emory University in Foreign Relations and Comparative Literature as a George Woodruff Scholar and a UNM Center for Regional Studies Fellow.

    His research interests mainly focus on a concept he refers to as "global legibility," the process whereby humans conceptualize the planet and make it a meaningful part of their realities. This work incorporates ideas drawn from studies in Global Political Economy, Emerging Markets, Creative Economy, and Critical Management Studies.

    He currently teaches the core International Management course for Anderson, the international practicum for the EMBA program, and an innovative graduate course that studies management issues in a geopolitical and philosophical context.

    Through his own consulting firm, In Medias Res Consulting, he also provides geo-political strategy to major NGOs, non-profits, and transnational corporations. He is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and has contributed to international efforts to eliminate child soldiers from major conflict regions. Manuel has also served as a policy analyst for the United States Senate and considers public service a pillar of his work.

    Dr. Montoya also contributes to several community organizations. He is on the Board of Directors for the International Folk Art Alliance, The Keshet Center for the Arts. As advisor for International Business Students Global, he has worked with UNM's top students on several ambitious projects aimed at using management skills to contribute to solutions for major global issues, including displacement and the preservation of ancestral cultures.

    An amateur watchmaker, poet, and short story writer, Dr. Montoya has been published in several prestigious literary magazines. He was inducted into the Anderson Hall of Fame in 2015 and was named one of Albuquerque's 40 under 40 in 2016.
