EMBA Class of 2018
"Completing UNM's Anderson School of Management, Executive MBA program was one of the greatest investments I’ve made in myself. I grew as a person and my business perspective was transformed. One of the greatest benefits was working with other executive students in a cohort. I was continuously challenged to practice my ability to receive and provide constructive feedback and to allow other students to take the lead. Teaming with like-minded professionals from different business backgrounds expanded my perspective because each student brought their own experience and strengths. I was excited and motived by our common desire to improve and preserve our local cultures, communities and tribes though business development and innovation. I learned to see through an entrepreneurial lens. I realized the needs, opportunities and resources we have for business development and growth in New Mexico and the surrounding tribal communities. The EMBA program not only enhanced my business acumen, but most importantly my confidence and courage as a leader."
