Thunderbird lacks focus and quality. This is demonstrated by the fact that the institution has changed its name numerous times since its inception. The curriculum is shallow and vague. There was only one course on international trade practice, the professor of which was worthless, part of an entrenched ol' boy clique . He gave cursory treatment to letters of credit and the mechanics of int'l trade in goods. The area studies courses were high school level with no practical insights. The language courses were a waste; one can't become "proficient" in another language in 9 months! The administration caters to foreign students, many of whom hate the U.S., but came anyway to get a U.S. based job and a green card. The career service job postings are for near native-level speakers of languages other than English. You can get a far better and cheaper int'l business education in some community colleges: Finance @ Oakton CC, Des Plains, IL; Ag Business @ Parkland CC, Champaign, IL; Logistics @ Columbus State CC, Columbus, OH; Banking (L/C's) at Miami-Dade CC, Miami, FL; and, Insurance @ Metropolitan CC, Omaha, NE. Other than that, ASGSIM was well worth the cost.
