What will I learn?

The Three-Two MBA Program permits a University of New Mexico undergraduate student to complete both a bachelor's degree in a field outside of management and an MBA degree in five (5) years. For the first three years of university studies, the student pursues a normal program of undergraduate work in any college excluding Anderson School of Management. During the second semester of the junior year, the student applies for admission to the MBA program at Anderson School of Management. The student is expected to meet regular MBA admission requirements with a minimum GPA of a 3.0 and a minimum GMAT score of 500 or an equivalent score on the GRE.
