School among the best for Hispanic graduate programs

Hispanic Business Magazine recently named the UNM Anderson School of Management as the sixth-best Graduate Business Schools for Hispanics in the nation. Each year Hispanic Business magazine measures and ranks the effectiveness of the nation's universities in attracting Hispanic students, and providing them with the academic support they need to be successful. The school was also ranked sixth last year.

"We are pleased with the recognition from Hispanic Business Magazine," said Doug Brown, dean, Anderson School of Management. "But we regard the current position as only a foundation upon which we will build programs that are ever more-responsive to the needs of our Hispanic constituents."

All universities were ranked in terms of Hispanic diversity according to the following criteria; percent of Hispanic student enrollment, percent of Hispanic faculty, progressive programs aimed at increasing enrollment of Hispanic students, Hispanic student retention rate, and Hispanic reputation.

The Anderson School is proud of a diverse student body that reflects the ethnic makeup of our state. Active involvement of faculty and students in the Hispanic Business Student Association and the Association of Latino Professionals in Finance and Accounting provide Hispanic students with a cultural community encouraging excellence in scholarship and service.

The schools ahead of Anderson School on the list include: University of Texas at El Paso, New York University, University of Texas at Austin, University of Miami and the University of Texas at San Antonio. Rounding out the top ten are Stanford University, Florida International University, Duke University, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
