My name is Mike is a rescue and I am a student at Thunderbird School of Global Management. Today I'm going to tell you a little bit about me. You know who I am is a student, a person, you know? Ah, general human being and a little bit also about why I chose Thunderbird, which is an absolutely amazing fabulous school, that I highly, highly, highly, highly highly recommend. So I'm actually a four plus one student right now, which means I'm finishing my undergraduate degree at the same time. So some of my classes where are my undergraduate classes? Which also happened to be a major global management, you know, like a double Thunderbird right there. I, the other half of my classes relate to my graduate degree, which is also in global management, but with a concentration in creative industries and design thinking, which is one of the best things I think that Thunderbird has come up with. Thunderbird already is a school that sets you apart from other schools because of its global focus. You know, being number one is absolutely fantastic. Even within Thunderbird you could diversify yourself by coming up with one of 16 concentrations so you could be like me and get a concentration in creative industries and design thinking, you know, because I think I'm deciding to go into entertainment. Um, center around different creative industry things. I'm taking a class right now with producer Ted Hope about the global creative industries. Or you can get your global management masters with a global health concentration or a law, concentration or a ton of other. All these different concentrations that you could take to really make your degree fit you as a person, which I think is a fabulous idea. Let's say you go online and you don't like one of the tons of concentrations you could just make your own, which, you know you can't beat that. Yes, I am a global management master's candidate with a concentration of creative industries and design thinking that is who I am. Why did I actually choose Thunderbird? Because it's an amazing program, but I usually live most of the year here in the Colorado So how did I find out about this global program in Arizona? I actually got lucky a little bit because both of my parents are graduates of Thunderbird as well. They met, you know, they had their classic love story fell in love, got married, had an amazing child me who would end up going to Thunderbird as well. That's not the only reason why I chose the program, because I'm an undergraduate program. I heard about the undergraduate program first when I just graduated high school, and I was looking for a global business program. When people talk about the moment they walk on campus and they're like, Yes, this'll is my school. Well, I didn't have that until I found a Thunderbird. I vividly remember taking a tour with another campus ambassador, just like I am now and thinking, you know what? This is where I'm supposed to be. One of the amazing things about Thunderbird is it creates a new sense of home wherever you're from in the world, whether it be China or Colorado or Arizona thistles where you're you're considered halt e. I think that's absolutely amazing. Yeah, some of the reasons why I chose Thunderbird three Amazing Family, The Amazing Classes and just It's an opportunity that you just can't turn down these air classes that you won't find nearly anywhere else because it's a Thunderbird. Classes taught by Thunderbird instruction instruct doors. It's It's hard to put into words how amazing I think this program is. Oh, yeah, going to a whole another state, You know, all these people? I don't know. Who wouldn't be nervous? I waas But the minute I walked in the doors, I was like, You know what? This is where I'm supposed to. So my hope for whoever is watching this video is to look into my eyes and realize I'm not just talking to a general Internet audience. Look at Thunderbird as a place to go because I promise you this is the school you want to go to. Were you a call home from now to the rest of your life? She come to Thunderbird.
