Overview of New Mexico’s MBAs
New Mexico has a population of about two million residents. More than one-quarter of the population resides in Albuquerque. New Mexico is a geographically large state with a concentrated population, which may enhance or limit the accessibility of undergraduate and graduate programs depending on where you live if you have to attend offered classes in person. The state economy is in the midst of an economic surge that proceeds from greater federal government interaction, scientific research, increased healthcare and medical services, and new waves of business growth. Education also plays a significant role in the state economy. The University of New Mexico is the state’s largest employer, and their educational programs have enriched the entire population. And an increase in distance learning studies, designed to provide learning to any student who can access a website, has advanced the cause of education in New Mexico. This type of learning has broad appeal and has usefulness for the state’s remote communities in general as well as those who are professional office workers and others who can’t afford to leave their jobs or families for a year or more to complete a degree program. The opportunities in an expanding business economy favor those with MBA degrees.
