Through a statement, the president of the Mexican Franchise Association ( MFA ), Roberts Avalos, acknowledged that business sector hardly absorb the costs of taxes to the federal government seeks to apply from next year.

MFA at ASU or UNM?2005-11-30 09:12:22 by fiddlegrrl
I'm appying for MFA program at University of New Mexico and Arizona State University in painting.
Anyone have any experience with either of these 2 programs? I did hear that UNM didn't seem to promote "sharing" of technique between students--resulting in everyone having "secret" methods of doing what they do.
Any info on practice vs. theory slant is also welcome.
