Minor in International Management

Is the Minor in International Management Right For You?

Many undergraduate students are completing degrees in fields outside of business but plan on eventually entering into an international career related to business and management. Students earning a BBA from the Anderson School of Management cannot choose the minor and should instead consider a concentration in International Management. Completing the minor will introduce students to business/management studies as well as some specialized training in international management. The minor becomes a valuable credential on a resume as well as a practical way to obtain an introduction to business in anticipation of a career in business or future MBA studies. Where appropriate, coursework may also include courses completed internationally through the Anderson School's faculty-led study trips or through UNM's numerous international exchange agreements.

How do Non-Anderson Students Enroll in Courses at the Anderson School?

Declared management minors may enroll in up to 12 credit hours of upper-division (300 level and above) management courses through the Course Override Request process. In order to stay within the limits, students should generally opt for international management courses that do not have additional prerequisites, such as MGMT 420, 421, 422, 492 and certain Special Topics courses. A student may also apply an international course from other departments at UNM to the minor, provided the course is not already being counted toward the student's major. Special topics courses must be pre-approved by Anderson to count for the minor.
