Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
I'll be talking about the choice of my program and the application process. Just to start of what made me choose to enroll at Thunderbird was basically the idea of having a global perspective and a master's degree, particularly in the international relations industry. When I saw there was a concentration with global affairs in the business administration domain, that really sparked my interest. How did I learn about this program was through word of mouth. I've always envisioned myself wanting to study in the United States on a master's level. At first I was looking at East Coast universities like those around Boston area or Washington D. C, given the context of international relationships. Then when I heard from people I know throughout the States, I heard about Thunderbird School of Global Management and how how great it is, especially in these area of interests that I was focusing on, really, really attracted me to apply to this program, especially given the fact that here in Arizona, it's ah place in the United States, which I'm very familiar with. I've been visiting this region quiet for a few years since since I was traveling in the United States. The types of students that private, this cool people who have this global mindset, this Funderburg mystique, curiosity, the inquisitiveness of always learning, wanting to learn more no matter what you're focusing on. I can say that almost all the students studying here at Thunderbird want to learn a new language that Xander word applicants. What they need to know about the grad school experience is the fact that there are a lot of group projects. Basically, you would have to like pulling your efforts work. You need to be updated with everything that's going on, no matter the subject. Procrastinating is not something to think about. Another really key aspect about grad school is the ability to be consistent In your studies, you do not have to ace every project or homework you have to do. It's the idea of being consistent throughout your whole grad school experience and actually get something out of it. A thing that I love about this school ISS. The fact that people actually help each other throughout their projects. For example, if I'm not a good speaker when it comes to the presentation, I might be able to help my team with something else. A more tech aspect of presentation, whereas someone who is a better speaker than me could take the relay. With that, when I started applying, I was in Bucharest and I was working full time. I remember having Thio prepare for my G Matt score exam whilst at the same time, working full time, I had to do to different essay questions. I remember one for the application process, which basically consisted in a general overview about what kind of mindset you have. If you actually fit the mindset of Thunderbird, this global aspect of thinking and the second essay, WAAS for scholarships, applications. I know that lots of international students like myself have this opportunity to apply for various scholarships during the application process. I believe that admission officers value the applicant who actually show that they've put in lots of efforts in applying if they're carefully selected their words in their essays and they actually show riel interest in the Thunderbirds mindset, and I know that admission officers also value true honesty. I've also had an interview with one of the alumni Thunderbird, and the idea of just being truthful and honest with oneself actually tells about your character. I know Funderburg is actually valuing this aspect to more than anything else. Obviously, being able to speak different languages is a big plus. One advice I would give applicants, especially when writing essays, is just be a ASUs honest. It's not about showing who's the toughest was the the best at everything. It's about showing the good side of your character as a individual as an international citizen.
