Shared-Credit Undergraduate/Graduate Degrees Program

Undergraduate Degree to Master of Business Administration: The Anderson School of Management's "3-2" Program allows students completing an undergraduate degree outside the Anderson School of Management 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 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.


Admission Requirements

The minimum requirements for unconditional admission to the M.B.A. are:

1.  a grade point average of 3.0 for the last 60 credit hours of college coursework including any post-baccalaureate work;
2.  a score equal to or greater than 500 on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or a Graduate Record Examination (GRE) score that is deemed to be greater than or equivalent to 500 on the GMAT using a conversion tool available from the Anderson School of Management Graduate Admissions office.


Core Curriculum

The M.B.A. core is required of all M.B.A. students and consists of 11 courses (31 credit hours), as follows:

    Credit
Hours
MGMT 501 Data Driven Decision Making 3
MGMT 502 Financial Accounting and Analysis 3
MGMT 504 Managerial Economics 3
MGMT 506 Managing People in Organizations 3
MGMT 508 Business and Society 3
MGMT 511 Technology Commercialization and the Global Environment 3
MGMT 520 Operations Design and Decision Making 3
MGMT 522 Managerial Marketing 3
MGMT 526 Financial Decision Making 3
MGMT 598 The Strategic Management Process 3
MGMT 600 Perspectives on Management and Careers 1
Total 31


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. All students, including those who have had some core courses waived, must complete a minimum of 33 graduate credit 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.
