Albuquerque was in competition with more than 210 other cities with populations more than 500,000 people to snag the for-profit school’s back-office and distance-learning operations.
“We’re glad they have chosen Albuquerque,” Martinez said. “The new employees will provide enrollment, financial services, planning and consulting to students and their families.”
Albuquerque beat out Fort Worth and Phoenix. Deciding factors to bring the new jobs here were based on the quality workforce and temperate weather, Martinez said.
