Briefcase: Applause for New Mexico workers, companies

Chudi Adi

Chudi Adi, M.D., CEO/Founder of CADIS LLC, has received $20,000 in Round 2 of the KidneyX COVID-19 Kidney Care Challenge. The challenge is a joint effort of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the American Society of Nephrology. From December to January, health care providers, dialysis centers, nonprofit health systems and other entrants submitted solutions that could reduce the transmission of coronavirus among people with kidney disease and/or reduce the risk of kidney damage among people who contract the virus. CADIS received the award for its mixed reality smart glasses supporting kidney disease management through telehealth and telemonitoring.


The University of New Mexico’s Anderson School of Management is again the highest ranked part-time MBA program in New Mexico and #3 in the Southwest, according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2022 Best Graduate Schools rankings. Nationally among public institutions, Anderson’s part-time MBA program ranks #49. The Best Graduate Schools rankings are based on two types of data: expert opinions about program excellence, and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research and students.

For the rankings of part-time MBA programs, more than 300 business schools were surveyed. Data were collected in Fall 2020 and early 2021. Factors that went into the rankings include:

– Peer assessment: Business school ratings for other part-time programs.

– Student selectivity: Average GMAT and GRE percentile scores, average undergraduate GPAs, and years of work experience.

– Percentage of enrollment: Percentage of the business school’s total full-time and part-time MBA enrollment that is in the part-time MBA program.

In addition, Anderson was recently notified of its reaccreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. AACSB accreditation ensures a school is providing challenging, relevant business education. Students completing their business degrees at an AACSB-accredited school receive a rigorous, relevant education that prepares them for successful careers.
