MBA, International Management in Latin America
"I originally decided to pursue an MBA because I wanted to switch careers and break into Management Consulting at one of the large firms. I wanted to stay in Albuquerque for my studies and Anderson is of course the best in not only Albuquerque, but also New Mexico. I found that the main strength of the MBA program at Anderson was that they provided the ability for you to gain an opportunity to try out your ideas and you will get out of the MBA experience at Anderson what you put in. All the opportunities are there for you; you just need to do the work in getting it done."
Anderson's graduate programs provides students the flexibility to design a part- or full-time program customized to their career and educational goals and lifestyle. The school has the distinction of being the only business school in the greater Albuquerque area, and one of only two schools in the entire state, to be accredited by AACSB.
The Accelerated MBA consists of 37 credit hours: 31 credit hours of core coursework and 6 hours of management electives. Management electives consist of any 501+ level MGMT coursework or 400 level courses noted with an asterisk (*), which denotes graduate credit available. Students may select courses from any of the 11 concentrations Anderson offers at the graduate level.
Students who pursue the Accelerated MBA option should also meet with the Anderson Career Development Facilitator to ensure course selection meets career goals. An internship is strongly recommended for students who pursue this option: MGMT 697 Internship (Permission required-see Career Services Office).
