The University of New Mexico Anderson School of Management is expanding its Executive MBA Program by adding a location in Northern New Mexico. This change will provide more flexibility and convenience to future classes of Anderson Executive MBA students, and they take effect with the incoming classes beginning June 2021.

Offering access in Northern New Mexico will make the program’s in-person component more convenient for students in the Santa Fe, Los Alamos, Española, Las Vegas and Taos areas. The Albuquerque program will continue to meet on the UNM Main Campus.

“We’re thrilled to expand access to Anderson’s Executive MBA into Northern New Mexico,” said Mitzi Montoya, dean of the Anderson School. “Our long-standing commitment to leadership development includes broadening access to excellent education for business leaders. It’s through capable leaders that we will navigate these challenging times and help grow our economy for all New Mexicans.”

The Executive MBA is offered in hybrid format: students focus on one or two courses during each cycle. This format consists of online coursework and in-person classes held once or twice a month. The cohort-based executive leadership curriculum remains the same, and students typically complete the program in two years.

A key element of this program is a rich immersive experience. In the past, this has included a 10-day international residency focused on global business leadership in which students met with global business executives, government leaders and thought leaders in another country to learn global business theories and best practices through in-person experience. In addition to the global business leadership residency, more options will be added for immersive residency experiences, including diversity leadership, innovation leadership, and sustainable business leadership. Wrap-around services integrated into the program include textbooks, course registration, catering and on-site support.

“This geographic expansion of the Executive MBA is an exciting opportunity for students to engage with our faculty and executive leadership curriculum in beautiful and historic Northern New Mexico,” said Rebecca Diemer, acting director of Anderson’s graduate programs. “New students will still receive the high-quality wrap-around services that Anderson customarily provides, which will now include opportunities to network across the cohorts in both locations.”

For this application period, the GMAT or GME entrance exam requirement is waived. In addition, UNM alumni in all majors automatically qualify for a Lobo for Life Scholarship to assist with tuition for master’s-level degrees at UNM Anderson School of Management.
