Language is the bridge across cultures

The study of modern languages and cultures has long distinguished Thunderbird from other graduate business schools. Thunderbird integrates language instruction into the overall educational experience to help students strengthen the global mindset that sets T-birds apart from other business school graduates.

To earn your degree at Thunderbird, you must reach a specified level of proficiency in a language that is not your native language. A second language is not an admissions requirement; however, proficiency in English is required for admissions.
