International Management Concentration

The International Management concentration is for undergraduate BBA candidates. Students who are interested in careers in International Management should meet with a Faculty Advisor early in their program to discuss career options and to have their course selections approved. Students who are serious about an international management career should also consider acquiring some first-hand international experience by living and working or studying abroad. (Anderson and the UNM Office of International Programs and Studies administer one-to-one exchange programs for students with universities in other countries and directs summer sessions in Latin America and Europe on an annual basis.) Students will also benefit greatly from mastering a foreign language.

  • Bio: Dr. Manuel (MJR) Montoya is an Associate Professor of Global Structures and International Management at the University of New Mexico's Anderson School of Management.

    He was born and raised in Mora, New Mexico, and received his B.A. in English Literature and Economics from the University of New Mexico. He has Master's degrees from Oxford University and NYU as a Truman Scholar and Rhodes Scholar. He received his Ph.D. at Emory University in Foreign Relations and Comparative Literature as a George Woodruff Scholar and a UNM Center for Regional Studies Fellow.

    His research interests mainly focus on a concept he refers to as "global legibility," the process whereby humans conceptualize the planet and make it a meaningful part of their realities. This work incorporates ideas drawn from studies in Global Political Economy, Emerging Markets, Creative Economy, and Critical Management Studies.

    He currently teaches the core International Management course for Anderson, the international practicum for the EMBA program, and an innovative graduate course that studies management issues in a geopolitical and philosophical context.

    Through his own consulting firm, In Medias Res Consulting, he also provides geo-political strategy to major NGOs, non-profits, and transnational corporations. He is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and has contributed to international efforts to eliminate child soldiers from major conflict regions. Manuel has also served as a policy analyst for the United States Senate and considers public service a pillar of his work.

    Dr. Montoya also contributes to several community organizations. He is on the Board of Directors for the International Folk Art Alliance, The Keshet Center for the Arts. As advisor for International Business Students Global, he has worked with UNM's top students on several ambitious projects aimed at using management skills to contribute to solutions for major global issues, including displacement and the preservation of ancestral cultures.

    An amateur watchmaker, poet, and short story writer, Dr. Montoya has been published in several prestigious literary magazines. He was inducted into the Anderson Hall of Fame in 2015 and was named one of Albuquerque's 40 under 40 in 2016.
