Dr. Manuel Montoya received an appointment in the Anderson School of Management at The University of New Mexico in 2010. In his courses for undergraduate and graduate level students, he covers topics centered on globalization and the global political economy, international operations, international institutions in the private, not-for-profit, and public sectors. Through his own consulting firm, In Medias Res Consulting, he also provides geo-political strategy to major NGOs, non-profits, and transnational corporations. He is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and has contributed to international efforts to eliminate child soldiers from major conflict regions. Montoya has also served as a policy analyst for the United States Senate and considers public service a pillar of his work. As advisor for International Business Students Global, he has worked with UNM's top students on several ambitious projects aimed at using management skills to contribute to solutions for major global issues including displacement and the preservation of ancestral cultures. His current research focuses on the interdisciplinary origins of global culture and its impact on economic and management issues including work on human security, expeditionary and conflict economics, global culture, expeditionary economics, global export analysis, international trade, emerging economies, and global economic sustainability.
