Patrick M. McManus, MBA, M.S.I.E.

I received a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology (BSET) with a minor in Manufacturing from NMSU in early 2003 after serving as an Infantryman in the U.S. Army's 5th Battalion of the 502nd infantry in Berlin. I then received my Master of Business Administration (MBA) in 2005 and a Master of Science in Industrial Engineering (MSIE) in 2006. I currently work for the USDA Forest Service at the Albuquerque Service Center for Budget and Finance (ASC B&F). I work there as a Financial Analyst in the Treasury Symbol Analysis and General Ledger Reconciliation Branch of the Chief Financial Office (CFO GLTS). I also teach Information Technology courses at National American University.
