UNM Annual Report for Academic Year 2002-2003 For The Robert O. Anderson Schools of Management and the School of Public Administration Growth and excellence were the themes highlighting the story of The Anderson Schools of Management (ASM) and The School of Public Administration (SPA) in 2002-2003. In Fall 2002, the Anderson Schools enrolled a record 1,051 undergraduates and 481 graduate students, representing a 9 .I% increase from FY 02. This extends a long-term growth trend of 42% enrollment increases since Howard Smith began his deanship in 1994. The School of Public Administration enrolled slightly more than 200 students At the directive of the Schools\' National Advisory Board, ASM and SPA launched the Center for the Support of Economic Development (CSED) in October 2002. Steve Beffort, New Mexico Secretary for General Services from 1994- 2002, was hired as the Center\'s first Executive Director and led its efforts to extend the UNM\'s consultation, planning and research resources to communities and businesses throughout the state. The CSED is one of the key components of ASM\'s strategic plan and mission "to provide quality management education that enables New Mexico to be economically competitive." Nationally, Anderson continued to be recognized for its strengths in key mission and program areas. For the third straight year, Hispanic Business Magazine placed ASM in its top 10 business schools for Hispanic students, advancing the Schools to a ranking of 6th in the nation. On an even broader stage, the Aspen Institute and World Resources Institute, in an inaugural study of business ethics programs, ranked the Anderson Schools 16111 in the world for their work in business ethics and social issues management.
