Thunderbird Alumni Consulting Lab

Adventure and Impact

Alumni TEM Lab - Santiago, Chile 2019

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 July of 2018 in Quito, Ecuador. That too was fantastic. So now, it is time for our third Lab and we are headed to Santiago, Chile. 

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