UNM Anderson Parker Center for Family Business programs are designed to address the unique concerns of family business owners and managers.

Family businesses, from sole proprietorships to large companies, dominate the New Mexico economy. Many lack the resources needed to resolve issues of leadership, succession planning, conflict resolution and complex legal and financial challenges.

UNM Anderson Parker Center for Family Business provides education and resources to support our community of New Mexico family-run enterprises.
