See what students say:


The College of Business at New Mexico State University is “extremely technologically savvy,” a quality that serves it well in a state that is home to several air force bases, major NASA operations, two national laboratories, Spaceport America, and several big tech players (Intel, for one, has a large manufacturing plant in Albuquerque).

NMSU incorporates technology in all disciplines, and has developed several specialized degrees. The school also “concentrates on entrepreneurs because of its abundant resources” such as NMSU’s Arrowhead Center, which provides assistance to clients onand off-campus in the areas of intellectual property, technological commercialization, and entrepreneurship education.

Many students simply appreciate the convenience of the program, praising its “wonderfully-located campus with a very unique and culturally-diverse academic program.” The school serves both full-time and part-time MBAs, and fully understands and meets the needs of traditional and nontraditional students when it comes to education. In the past 10 years, NMSU has even “created an MBA cohort program for the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Laboratory,” and for employees at the White Sands Missile Range near Las Cruces. Those programs are now being replaced with a cohort-based distance MBA which is online with a synchronous online component and one evening per week. A school that comes to you—you can’t beat that for convenience.

Instructors at NMSU “are well-respected in their fields and apply real-world applications to their lectures and assignments,” while “the administration is always very responsive whenever a conflict arises.” A “socially and ethnically diverse student population” informs class discussion. One student sums up, “I have had a very positive overall academic experience. Every single administrator and faculty member has treated me with the utmost respect and professional courtesy.”
