Management Sciences, Inc. (MSI) is dedicated to making a better tomorrow and actively participates in the community. Each year, we donate to several charities and participate in many non-profit organizations. MSI has been featured in several New Mexico publications and has received a number of awards. Some of our community activities, publications, and awards are listed below.
MSI and the University of New Mexico (UNM)
Management Sciences, Inc. has been a part of the Anderson School of Management at UNM since 2005, when the founder, Kay Blemel, became a part of the Management and Technologies Advisory Board. In 2005, two of MSI’s current employees graduated from Anderson School of Management with Executive MBAs and two employees are recently received their BBAs in 2012. We also have encouraged Anderson graduate entrepreneurial students to research all aspects of our business structure.
