Hi guys, did Sierra again here to talk more about the Thunderbird School of Global Management in 1946 the actual Thunderbirds decided to make our school. While we have a variety of amazing degree programs to choose from, I'm here to talk about the one that I'm in. So I'm currently in the masters of global Management program, which is our most popular, and that one is on campus. If you need to get out sooner and you don't want to do the internship, you can really do a three semester programas well, and that will graduate us semester early. What's really awesome about the masters of global management is we have a ton of applied learning opportunities, so the first opportunity we have is a class called corporate partners, and that's one where we work with a client and usually a consulting company. So right now I'm in that class and we're working with the World Petroleum Council and Boston Consulting group. So we're putting together this really great project for the World Petroleum Congress, which is going to be next December, and we're working with the Boston Consulting Group hand in hand for this. The next opportunity for applied learning is going to be through the Global Challenge lab. Now it's global challenge, and what it is is. It's a seven week, one session class and your immensely dedicated just to that class. So you work with them for seven weeks to fix a problem. I'm talking all over the world anywhere in the world. So in the past, it's been people in all walks of life in Third World countries in far reaches of the world, things like that, and it's been really, really cool. So for our program barring Cove in as of now, we're hoping we could go overseas. It's two weeks at home in Phoenix. Three weeks overseas, actually seeing the client and working with them in their office and then two weeks back in Phoenix, where we can finish up everything and present to the client. What you can do is you can do business concentrations like global affairs or global business. If you're really, really interested in the transformation aspect, there's entrepreneurship for all of you out there who want to start your own business and do that. There's also things like public policy and nonprofit leadership and management. If you wanna work for a nonprofit and NGO, there's, of course, health care and more data science. Then there's one where you can just design your own so you can pick whatever classes you want to design your own specificity. So it's super cool how everything works for me because my undergraduate degrees in finance, I really wanted to focus on management and strategy. So I'm taking the global business with the management track. I am focusing a lot on leadership and management classes. I've taken strategy classes, and so it's really, really great because I'm still getting the global management degree that everyone else is. I'm really able to drill down into those management and leadership and strategy classes. So the best thing for me is that wherever I work after I graduate and after I get a ton of experience, I really, really want Thio become a leadership consultant. So I wanna be able Thio work with either C suite level executives or executives moving into C suite level to really be able Thio opponent on their skills, adjust anything that they need help with, or that they need toe work on can really be ableto work with them one on one. Of course I have to get that experience, so Thunderbird is the perfect place to start that. So I'm super excited because for me, this was the only program I wanted to be in. Thunderbird is Bar None, the best graduate school in the world. We do have an undergraduate program to, which is also amazing. What makes Thunderbird unique and what makes it better than any MBA program out there is that it's not just an MBA. We have that global focus. So if you're really hoping to get a global focus, to really learn from these professors who have lived overseas, who have worked overseas, who have more experience than you could even imagine, this is the school you want to be at. You know how to work and speak to and be around people from all over the world because, believe it or not, that's how everything is, right. Everything is talking to somebody in Shanghai or talking to somebody in Brazil were working with someone in Europe and all the time you're gonna be on zoom calls, you're gonna be on conference calls. You're gonna be working from people everywhere. You're not just gonna be working from people from your hometown or your home state. So the fact that our professors have lived and worked and done all of this is incredible. Like I said, Thunderbird School of Global Management, the masters of global management degree.
