"I chose Thunderbird and enrolled into the EMGM Program to broaden my perspective on business with an International lens. I found myself surrounded by some of the most intelligent minds that I’ve ever encountered. Even though our professors are extremely knowledgeable, I’d say that the source of my program enrichment is the diverse perspectives of my cohort."
