Thunderbird School of Global Management has a broad presence in Latin America, thanks to our unique partnership with Tecnológico de Monterrey (Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey or ITESM). This partnership permits Thunderbird Latin America to take advantage of the prestigious Tec de Monterrey's multiple locations and extensive local knowledge for our joint Distance Learning Global MBA for Latin American Managers program.
Thunderbird's partnership with ITESM
