MBA program continues scholarships for staff
Open House set for Feb. 5

UNM and the Anderson Schools of Management (ASM) recently announced the continuation of the Executive MBA program (EMBA). A scholarship offered to staff, co-sponsored by Julie Weaks, vice president for Business and Finance, Dr. Philip Eaton, interim vice president for Health Sciences, and Howard Smith, dean of the Anderson Schools, demonstrates UNM’s commitment to provide career development opportunities for staff.

The EMBA program, in its third year, is an intensive two-year program with classes offered alternate weekends Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings. The unique format is designed for experienced managers interested in a program that doesn’t interrupt their careers. Since its inception, four staff members have received a full scholarship, while two others received book scholarships.

To be eligible for consideration, applicants must be full-time UNM staff currently working in a management or supervisory position, and must be employed at UNM for a minimum of three years prior to starting the EMBA program. The scholarship recipient(s) must be able to meet the admission criteria for the program, which includes having an undergraduate degree and at least three years of significant work experience.

For more information about the EMBA program, staff are encouraged to attend a special public open house set for Tuesday, Feb. 5 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Albuquerque Marriott. To reserve a seat, call the Management Development Center at 277-2525.

The deadline to submit a scholarship application is Friday, March 22. Additional information about the scholarship can be found on the Human Resources website under “What’s New” (http://www.unm.edu/~hravp/cardev/mba.htm).
