A Message From Dean Brown


Legendary San Francisco Chronicle journalist Herb Caen wrote of being derided for having a job that required him to write only one column per day. He responded that his day began with a cup of coffee at his computer in front of a window with a view of the Bay. Then he would “open his veins and bleed.”

Creativity cannot be summoned on demand. It geminates and is nurtured in a fertile environment. President Frank’s Innovate ABQ is designed to create such an environment. Innovate ABQ will provide a live-work-play community where entrepreneurs, UNM professors, and students will collaborate on learning experiences that provide opportunities for our students and that develop promising business ventures.

New Mexico is critically dependent on developing new and thriving businesses to bring jobs and opportunities. UNM is committed to play a leading role in this effort.

UNM Anderson & The Lobos

On Saturday, February 1, Dean Doug Brown hosted Anderson School of Management faculty, staff, and board members at an appreciation reception at the Pit, followed the Lobos Men's basketball game where the Lobos won a rousing 72-47 victory over the San Jose State Spartans. Attendees enjoyed food, fun, a visit from Lucy Lobo, and recognition on the court prior to the game.

Associate Dean Rob DelCampo was interviewed on KKOB Radio at halftime, discussing the MBA and EMBA programs as well as the Hall of Fame awards banquet. He was also featured on a video focusing on Anderson highlights that was broadcast several times throughout the game.

A Message From Dean Brown




Business, all business. Traditionally, those terms mean proceeding with total objectivity, devoid of all personal consideration and devoid of passion.


Anderson is different. The personal touch is part of everything we do. Young professors are each assigned senior professors as mentors to help them with their teaching techniques. Similar assistance is provided on the research front. It is only a first step to have a good research proposal. The presentation must be carefully crafted to appeal to particular publishers. Then begins the cycle of revisions and re-submits. All of these steps can benefit greatly from guidance by senior faculty.
Personal connections are at the heart of many staff activities. Advisement and Career Services are all about serving the needs of students. These units at Anderson go well beyond passively waiting to serve students; they reach out to both students and employers. At Anderson, fundraising is all about cultivating engagement and friendship and events. Donations come from the heart.

The personal touch extends to Anderson faculty and staff working effectively with each other on important projects. I am especially grateful to Associate Dean Rob DelCampo and Faculty Chair Doug Thomas for their leadership in gaining faculty approval for a significant curriculum review, the culmination of a three-year process.

On an everyday basis, faculty and staff participate extensively in recruiting and screening new colleagues. Anderson’s faculty are conscientious in keeping office hours and being accessible to students – to the point that throughout UNM, Anderson’s professors are perennially rated as the best on campus.

At Anderson, doing business goes well beyond being all business.

Dining For Success

Employers tell us that many job candidates lose out during the job search and interview process because of professional etiquette errors. Don’t be one of them!

Anderson School of Management students are invited to join etiquette professional Jackie Ingle as she prepares you to project a polished and professional image during networking receptions and interviews with meals. You’ll enjoy a complimentary three-course meal with local business employers and learn how to outdistance your competition with courteous behavior.

The event takes place in the SUB Ballroom on Thursday, February 27 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Register here today!
