What attracted you to Thunderbird?
"My main attraction to Thunderbird was its unique global focus in its graduate programs. I have always had a passion for experiencing and learning about other cultures so, when deciding among MBA programs, Thunderbird was a natural fit. I am also fortunate to have been raised by two Thunderbird alumni: my mother and my father. From their example, I have seen firsthand the global leaders that Thunderbird produces."

What do you believe Thunderbird offers that other programs/schools do not?
“Thunderbird is unique in that it offers students a hands-on, global learning experience not typical of a traditional management program. From modules abroad to cultural clubs to regional nights, T-birds are able to experience and learn about different cultures directly from their peers. Also, the diversity of students is simply amazing; Thunderbird attracts students from over 40 countries to Glendale, AZ. The global diversity represented in the classroom is what gives students a richer learning experience and is also what makes Thunderbird truly unique.”
What are your career or personal aspirations and how do you believe Thunderbird will position you to achieve these goals?
“At Thunderbird I am focusing my studies on global entrepreneurship and marketing. I am deeply passionate about experiencing different cultures and lifestyles and I truly enjoy exposing others to these experiences. The global learning experience I will be privy to will refine my global skillset and provide me a solid foundation to further myself not only academically and professionally, but also personally.”
