Prospective Student Events

Discover Thunderbird at an on-campus, on-location or online event

Campus Preview Weekend & Thunderday

For most prospective students, one visit to Thunderbird’s campus lets them know they’ve found their academic and cultural home. Meet with our faculty, staff, students and alumni during Campus Preview Weekend or Thunderday — and discover the Thunderbird mystique for yourself. Highlights include a case presentation by faculty; sessions on our curriculum, unique global experiences, internship opportunities and campus life; networking opportunities with the T-bird community; and, our signature Regional Night event hosted by current students and featuring the food and culture from a particular region of the world.

Complimentary accommodations are provided on Friday night for Thunderday and on Friday & Saturday nights for Campus Preview Weekends.

“First Tuesday” networking events

Thunderbird alumni chapters have a long-standing tradition of meeting once a month in a designated location to socialize and network with other alumni in the area. As a result of this tradition, a “T-Bird” graduate can be traveling to Atlanta or Beijing or Paris or Buenos Aires or Singapore, and he or she will have the opportunity to join the monthly gathering of fellow T-birds. These “First Tuesday” events welcome prospective students for international networking and idea-sharing opportunities with our exemplary alumni.

Information sessions

Information sessions are held on-site in locations around the world. They offer you the opportunity to meet Thunderbird faculty, students and alumni and gain valuable insight into how Thunderbird can move you forward in your global business career.
