Thunderbird has been one of the top-ranked international management schools for decades. With more than 70 years of experience, Thunderbird continues to produce leaders capable of tackling the world’s greatest challenges. As the world continues innovating and the technology changes of the 4th Industrial Revolution alter the way we live and work, Thunderbird is developing nimble, ethical, global leaders who are equipped to craft sustainable businesses, economies, cultures and environments around the world for the 21st century.
On April 8, 1946, Thunderbird School of Global Management (originally known as the American Institute for Foreign Trade [AIFT]) was chartered on the Glendale, Ariz. World War II airbase, Thunderbird Field, where pilots from around the world came for training during wartime. General Barton Kyle Yount obtained the airfield with the express purpose of developing a school focused exclusively on international trade and global relations.
As AIFT, Thunderbird became the first-ever higher-education institution to focus exclusively on international management by concentrating curriculum on cross-cultural communication, regional business studies and hands-on, real-world training in global business nuances. Thunderbird continues to deliver global management education in this same fashion today, with world-renowned faculty who have extensive practitioner and consultant experience in all facets of international business.
To educate global leaders and managers who will maximize the benefits of the 4th Industrial Revolution.
A world with sustainable and equitable prosperity.
