I got exactly what I was looking for
I got exactly what I was looking for at Thunderbird. I wanted an international career. At Thunderbird I started to meet like-minded people from around the world, began studying Chinese and learning about int'l business. Based on the advice of fellow students and the faculty, I took a leave of absence and went to Taiwan where I started my business career in the computer industry. After returning and graduating in 1985 I became partners with a Hong Kong factory owner and set up a distribution business in USA. Later, I bought out my partner and expanded the business. When it became necessary to open a branch office in Taiwan, I used the services of a fellow T-Bird alumnni who happened to be the owner of Taiwan's largest executive recruiting company. He helped me hire excellent staff and the business became very successful. I love my career.

Question
Thunderbird was a fantastic and transformational experienceFinance
Thunderbird was a fantastic and transformational experience for me.
Many schools offer a student "tools" for success. By this I mean, if you want to be an accountant, or quant jock, or "lawyer" there are most certaintly better programs for you. If you want your graduate school to guarantee you a job as a functional cog in the corporate universe, go somewhere else, anywhere else. If you think you have what it takes to master the interaction of the vast population of functional cogs, pumped out by the rest of the grad schools, in an international environment, go to Thunderbird.

To be candid, international business is an art, it is not a science. You simply can't be trained and guaranteed to be successful as an artist.

The science part of business is a pure commodity. Masters of the art of business are few. Thunderbird exposes potential talent to the art. What do I mean? Virtually anyone with basic math and logic skills can get a CPA, for example. Sorry, not everyone, even if they went to Thunderbird, is a DaVinci.

Business - Management and Administration
A Thunderbird degree is essentially worthless. Prior comments on this page are accurate and should be heeded.
