The MGM is the new MBA

Since its inception, Thunderbird has focused on innovation and on being nimble enough to change and respond as the graduate education industry evolves. Today, as reported by The Economist and others, the appeal of an MBA is not as prevalent as it once was—for both students and employers. While MBAs have lost their competitive edge, the new focus is on specialized graduate degrees, precisely like the Master of Global Management and Master of Arts in Global Affairs & Management at Thunderbird. This specialized education prepares students for world business—not just general business—with diverse experiences inside and outside the classroom, classmates from all over the world and faculty with real-world international experience.
