GMAT Waiver Policy
Applicants to Anderson graduate degree programs may petition the Entrance & Credits Committee to waive GMAT/GRE admission requirements if the applicant has completed a graduate degree with evidence of significant quantitative or statistical course work. The decision to waive or not waive the GMAT/GRE admission requirements rests entirely with the Entrance & Credits Committee.

M.Acct. (Advanced and Tax Concentrations)
The minimum requirements for admission to the Master of Accounting Program are (1) a grade point average of 3.0 for the last 60 hours of college coursework including any post-baccalaureate work as well as an average of 3.0 for all accounting courses, and (2) a score equal to or greater than 500 on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or (3) a Graduate Record Examination (GRE) score that is equal to or greater than 500 on the quantitative section and equal to or greater than 500 on the verbal section. The GMAT/GRE is waived for students who have an undergraduate major in accounting from an AACSB accredited school with a minimum of 3.25 GPA in both upper-division and accounting classes.

M.Acct. (Professional Concentration)
The minimum requirements for admission to the Master of Accounting Program are (1) a grade point average of 3.0 for the last 60 hours of college coursework including any post baccalaureate work, and (2) a score equal to or greater than 500 on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or (3) a Graduate Record Examination (GRE) score that is equal to or greater than 500 on the quantitative section and a score equal to or greater than 500 on the verbal section.

Students granted the waiver must also attend the Anderson School Writing workshop.

The professional concentration accepts applications for Fall, Spring, or Summer admission. However, the professional concentration primarily admits students to begin the program in the Fall Semester because of course scheduling. If you are applying for admission to the professional concentration of the Master of Accounting in the Spring or Summer, please email ProfMACCT@mgt.unm.edu prior to submission of your application to determine if you meet the course requirements necessary for consideration of a Spring or Summer admission.

A formal application, plus all additional admission requirements, must be submitted by all students, including graduates of the Anderson School of Management. Applications for admission are available online at http://mba.mgt.unm.edu. A nonrefundable application fee of $50.00 must accompany the application.

General M.B.A. Core

The general M.B.A. core consists of 10 courses (30 credit hours), as follows:

  • MGMT 501 Statistical Analysis for Management Decisions
  • MGMT 502 Accounting and Management Information Systems I
  • MGMT 504 Microeconomics for Managers
  • MGMT 506 Organizational Behavior and Diversity
  • MGMT 508 Ethical, Social, Political and Legal Environment
  • MGMT 511 Technology Commercialization and the Global Environment
  • MGMT 520 Operations Management
  • MGMT 522 Marketing Management
  • MGMT 526 Financial Management
  • MGMT 598 Strategic Management

All M.B.A. students must complete these 10 courses. Students who have recently completed a B.B.A. from the Anderson School of Management or at a comparable AACSB-accredited program may request waivers for some core courses, with the exception of MGMT 598, which all students must take as a capstone course. In addition to these 10 courses (30 hours), all students must  complete an additional 18 hours of combined concentration and/or elective courses. All students, including those waiving some core courses, must complete a minimum of 33 graduate hours. Of these, 12 credit hours may be transferred from an approved graduate program offered by another university. Approved universities include AACSB accredited business schools, as well as international business schools with which UNM has a current written exchange agreement. Students are expected to maintain a 3.0 GPA and must have a 3.0 GPA at graduation. The M.B.A. program may be completed on a full-time or part-time basis. For many students whose professional commitments preclude full-time study, pursuing an M.B.A. on a part-time basis is a viable option. Late afternoon and evening classes are offered to accommodate the needs of working students.


The “Three-Two” Program

The Anderson School’s Three-Two Program allows students completing an undergraduate degree outside the Anderson School to begin their M.B.A. studies early. It is recommended that students complete Business Calculus and Microeconomics before applying. For the first three years of university studies, the student pursues a normal program of undergraduate work. During the junior year (90 hours) of academic work, the student applies for admission to the M.B.A. program of the Anderson Graduate School. Students must not take any management classes prior to their acceptance into this program with the exception of MGMT 113. In the senior year of academic work, the student begins the first year of the M.B.A. program and also completes the requirements for a bachelor’s degree in the undergraduate field using their graduate work to complete a business minor. In the final year of study, the student completes the second-year requirements and electives of the M.B.A. program.


Dual-Degree Programs

For information on the J.D./M.B.A., M.B.A./M.A. in Latin American Studies, M.B.A./Engineering, and Pharm.D./M.B.A. dual-degree programs see the M.B.A. Program Manager, the Admissions Manager at the School of Law, the School of Engineering, the Latin American Studies Program Advisor, and the College of Pharmacy.

The J.D./M.Acct. Dual Degree Program (119 hours)
The School of Law and the Anderson Graduate School of Management offer a dual program leading to the degrees of Juris Doctor and Master of Accounting. Under this program, the School of Law will accept 6 hours of graduate credit from the Master of Accounting Degree toward the J.D. degree and the Anderson School of Management will accept 6 hours of graduate credit from the School of Law toward the M.Acct. degree, coursework subject to pre-approval from the faculty advisor. Students pursuing this program must satisfy the admission and other academic requirements of both schools. Anderson School of Management will accept the LSAT in lieu of the GMAT if the student has already been accepted into the law school and has earned a “B” or better in the two prerequisites for admission into the M.Acct., MGMT 502 and 503 or equivalent.

Those planning to enter the dual program should consult with the admission officers of both schools as early as possible.

The Seven-Year Rule

All work used to meet degree requirements for a master’s degree, including transfer credit, must be completed within a seven year period immediately preceding the granting of the degree. Coursework older than seven years cannot be used to meet requirements for the master’s degree. Graduate units may impose stricter limitations on the time limit for completion of degree requirements.

This catalog provides basic information about Anderson School graduate programs. Students admitted to the graduate program should consult the Anderson School of Management Graduate Programs Policy Manual for additional information about current policies.

Non-degree

Non-degree students must petition for permission to enroll in graduate-level courses in the Anderson Graduate School. Students are allowed only 6 hours of graduate-level course work, then must be admitted to the M.B.A. program to take additional graduate classes. Generally, students with an undergraduate degree will be allowed to take Anderson graduate courses if there is space available and if the student meets the prerequisites for the course.
