Alumni Testimonials


"I was completely blown away at the incredible line-up of speakers and presenters who made themselves available for the class.  They were world renown experts in their fields and industry leaders.  I can honestly say I learned from the best of the best in this class.  I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a more in-depth understanding of the basics of economic development."

"This course provides a comprehensive overview of all the key factors you have to examine, ranging from workforce, financing, and theaters of operation to challenges, marketing, and ethics.  As a legislator, it expanded both my local and statewide understanding and awareness of all the factors we need to keep in focus as we work to grow our economy and sustainability for businesses large and small, both already here and considering a move to New Mexico."
