When it comes to a quality MBA program at an affordable price, nothing beats Anderson School of Management. It was an easy decision to make. I finished the program prepared for growth in my career and with no student debt.
The MBA program at Anderson taught me the high level critical thinking and problem solving skills that are demanded of business executives. Those skills, combined with the student and faculty contacts I still call upon today, have given me an important edge in a competitive business employment environment.
Thanks to my education from Anderson I was able to secure a job out of college as an International Trade Specialist for local government. In just a few years I had the privilege to become New Mexico’s Director of Mexican Affairs and Trade, advising the Governor on issues pertaining to the State’s relationship with Mexico. I worked on Borderplex development and helped local companies do business in Mexico. Today, I own my own international trade and tourism consulting firm working with multiple governments to help use international business as a strategic economic development tool.
