Overview

Thunderbird and Thunderbird’s Career Management Center (CMC) offers career events and workshops throughout the academic year to enhance your career development. We develop Thunderbirds for life-changing global careers. We partner with students, alumni, faculty, and staff to foster a career focused community. We provide guidance and resources to Thunderbirds for strategic career planning. We connect employers to global talent.

Each Master of Global Management (MGM) student is assigned a Career Coach. Coaching appointments are designed to support you throughout the development and implementation of your internship or job search strategy. Our Career Coaches offer two self-assessment tools for current students seeking to clarify and explore their career goals: Success Insights (TTI) and CareerLeader. After taking these online assessments, you may attend a workshop to learn about the results and then meet with a coach to discuss any impact the results may have on your professional development and career choices.

Thunderbird works with local and international organizations to recruit Thunderbird students, including: ExxonMobil, Honeywell, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, On Semiconductor, Hilti, Johnson & Johnson, U.S. Department of State and many others.
