A NATURAL FIT.
A NATURAL PROGRESSION. 

“In making the transition from a successful time spent in the United States Marine Corps, it became evident that the development of a sound business acumen would be paramount in the next phase of my career. In selecting Thunderbird, I was not only gaining this, but also gaining exposure to all of the cultural aspects and lenses that make international business so dynamic and attractive.”

– Samuel B. Willcoxon '16  Captain, USMC
