Please join us to learn from, and celebrate the first full-cohort Global Challenge Lab (GCL).
On Thursday, February 25, from 6 am to 7:30 am (AZ time), the GCL faculty and Director General and Dean Sanjeev Khagram will host four standout GCL teams and their clients for an overview of their projects and a forum focused on the learning development and client outcomes that took place.
The GCL is Thunderbird’s applied consulting practicum in which teams of Thunderbird students work directly with real-world organizations across all sectors. This semester GCL projects included 19 clients across 8 countries, with 94 students working remotely from all over the world amidst the global pandemic. Thunderbird students are charged with all aspects of the consulting process, including team leadership, client management, and producing results that make a difference for the client organization.
Projects often focus on cutting-edge Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) Themes. In the face of the pandemic, Thunderbird students mastered virtual communication and collaboration to achieve real-world results, giving them a robust upper hand as they enter the 4IR job market.
We invite current students, alumni, Staff, Faculty, and members of the Thunderbird community around the world to attend this forum. Join us to learn about, and commemorate the amazing work these T-birds did as one of the last steps of their Thunderbird academic career before joining the global workforce as leaders equipped to promote sustainable prosperity worldwide.
