For the third year in a row, Hispanic Business Magazine has ranked UNM's Anderson School of Management (ASM) as one of the best postgraduate schools in the nation for Hispanic students. The magazine ranked ASM No. 7 for its 34.2 percent Hispanic graduate enrollment and 41 MBA degrees earned last year. Nationally, the number of Hispanics pursuing postgraduate degrees is on the rise, increasing from 10.9 percent in 2007 to 15.8 percent this year.

The Anderson School has a diverse student body that reflects the ethnic makeup of New Mexico. An active population of faculty and students comprise the Hispanic Business Student Association and the Association of Latino Professionals in Finance and Accounting. These student groups provide Hispanic students with a cultural community encouraging excellence in scholarship and service.

Doug Brown, Dean of the Anderson School, says being recognized as a top business school for Hispanics is a major accomplishment.

"We are pleased with the contributions of our Hispanic students, faculty, and staff," said Brown. "We will continue our efforts to ensure their success."

Schools ahead of Anderson in the Hispanic Magazine rankings include: The University of Texas at El Paso, UT-Austin and UT-San Antonio, New York University, University of Miami and the University of Virginia. For more information on the rankings visit Hispanic Business Magazine.
