Prospective Student Events





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

Campus Preview Day

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 Day — 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.

Our next Preview Day is on February 20, 2016

“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

Our enrollment staff are currently traveling to meet with prospective students throughout the Western U.S., stop in or schedule an appointment to speak with us at a “Coffee Chat”.
