Organizations in the Fourth Industrial Revolution face new challenges and opportunities. They are still accountable for keeping the lights; they're also committed to delivering solutions for sustainability, diversity and inclusion, and global development. At Thunderbird, we share the same commitment. And we understand that realizing our vision of a world with sustainable and equitable prosperity is only possible through our partnerships. Together with these incredible partners, we’re advancing our vision, and theirs.

Preeminent organizations around the world partner with Thunderbird for our shared worldview, and for our access to people and resources that most institutions don't have. These include an expanding global footprint of over 20 regional centers around the world and more than 45,000 alumni in 145 counties. Our world-renowned faculty provide students with in-class and applied learning opportunities across sectors and disciplines. And we’re part of the most-innovative ASU Enterprise, with a new state-of-the-art building in Downtown Phoenix equipped with next-generation educational tools.
