Adventure and Impact

Thunderbird Emerging Markets Laboratory was created in 2010 as a full-time, on-site, global consulting opportunity for Thunderbird’s MBA students. Since its inception, Thunderbird consulting labs have delivered tens of thousands of hours of consulting services in more than 30 countries around the world.

In August of 2017, Thunderbird launched its first Alumni Consulting Lab in Bogotá, Colombia. It was such a success that we decided to offer another Lab in March of 2018 in Quito, Ecuador!

Thunderbird Alumni consultants will have the opportunity to learn and share their expertise as consultants in Quito, Ecuador while working with diverse companies and experiencing a dynamic Latin American economy. Alumni will be guided by Thunderbird faculty member Tom Hunsaker as they engage with high-potential Ecuadorian entrepreneurs across a variety of industries.
