Finance in a global economy
Taught by the world's foremost authorities on global business and cross-cultural interaction, the courses in Thunderbird's MS in Global Finance program deliver insight into the intricacies of fiscal activity on an international scale – and how financial matters may be driven by cultural nuance.

The two-trimester program features core curriculum in global finance with hands-on experiential learning opportunities delivered through applied learning projects led by Thunderbird faculty that engage you in real-world business and consulting scenarios.
