Thunderbird School of Global Management at Arizona State University

Thunderbird School of Global Management became a unit of the ASU knowledge enterprise in 2015, bringing with it 70 years of history and international accolades for executive education. The flagship Thunderbird campus is situated on the grounds of Thunderbird Field No. 1, a World War II-era pilot-training base in Glendale, Arizona. The school occupies contemporary buildings as well as award-winning renovations of some of the base’s historic landmarks. Students from around the world enter the campus, walking past the multilingual greeting of the Thunderbird Welcome Wall, to nurture the global mindset, business skills and social responsibility that will empower them to become leaders in their organizations and communities. The intimate campus is home to a renowned faculty of instructors who carry on the traditions that have placed Thunderbird among the top-ranked global business education institutions, and earned the school the perennial support of loyal alumni. Thunderbird’s location offers valuable access to corporate, cultural and recreational resources throughout metropolitan Phoenix.
