The Anderson Schools of Management At the Robert O. Anderson School and Graduate School of Management (Anderson) we are committed to: (1) shaping the character and intellect of the next generation of business leaders, (2) advancing the knowledge and practice of management, (3) promoting economic development in New Mexico and ( 4) building a vibrant intellectual environment that serves the best interests of all our stakeholders. The Anderson Schools received initial AACSB International accreditation in 1975 and is currently accredited in both business and accounting. In the past year, Anderson has received national recognition for excellence in three key areas: Education for Hispanic students (Hispanic Business Magazine), ethical business education (Beyond Grey Pinstripes), and Management of Technology (International Association for Management of Technology). Anderson enjoys excellent relations with the New Mexico business community, especially from members of the Anderson Foundation Board. We also benefit from the support of our National Advisory Board consisting of prominent alumni and other leaders serving in executive and board positions in Fortune 500 corporations. These relationships have helped Anderson form strategic alliances with a host of for-profit corporations, not-for-profit organizations and governmental agencies. These symbiotic alliances create learning opportunities for both our students and faculty and help our State grow and prosper. Anderson is dedicated to the principles of the new AACSB International Standards and has made significant progress in the core areas of strategic planning, assurance of learning and faculty sufficiency. Past and current initiatives, emerging from our updated strategic plan, demonstrate our commitment to continuous improvement. Our effective practices emerge from our highest priorities. The following describes eight specific practices, organized according to our four top priorities.
