Thunderbird applied learning courses enable students to actively apply course material to real-world, real-time organizational challenges. Thunderbird’s for-credit, applied learning courses are:
- Offered in a variety of formats but typically involve real-world business consulting in team-based, client-facing projects.
- Range from one to five weeks of full-time on-site work in another country to 13 weeks of campus-based work.
- Our flagship Global Consulting Laboratories available to our Master of Global Management students are full-time, on-site consulting work in a dynamic economy.
The value of students with real-world experience
Student consultants are culturally adaptive, smart, and motivated. Through participation in our applied learning courses, students acquire real-world experience, learn to work in cross-cultural teams, gain insights into new functions and industries and get strong resume-building experiences.
