Interested in Graduate School?

  • If after completing your undergraduate degree, you have an interest in pursuing graduate studies at NMSU, particularly in our programs (MS-AEEC, MAG-AGRIBUS, MBA-AGRIBUS), please take the time to consult with your advisor on pre-requisites and grade requirements to better prepare for your initial acceptance into a graduate program. Most of the core requirements for the MBA-AGRIBUS degree require pre-requisites that must be completed with a B or better before enrolling in their courses. Additionally, in consultation with your undergraduate advisor, you can prepare and take additional courses that are not necessarily part of your undergraduate degree but will be required for entry into a graduate program (i.e., ECON 371, ECON 372, etc.) that may also require grades of B or better. This will help you to avoid having to make up deficiencies during your first or second semester and you can begin your graduate program with ease.

More information on our graduate programs can be found on our department's graduate program website AEAB Graduate Programs.
