As the May 2014 graduates move out of Thunderbird, they also graduated into the world’s No. 1 global network of 42,000 T-birds in 140 countries–the world’s No. 1 business school network. The Alumni Relations Office (ARO) and the Alumni Council of Thunderbird (ACT) encourage graduates to stay connected with fellow T-birds and engaged with the school during their journey of lifelong learning and connections. We met with Joy Lubeck ’86, ACT President, and she was thrilled to take part in the commencement ceremony this week and meet the new T-Birds joining the family. “We’re all T-Birds and part of the world’s no.1 business school network. Our hope is we can continue to support alumni, new and old, by providing viable opportunities with jobs, mentoring and networking to help us all move forward,” Joy said.
ARO advised the best way to stay connected to the Alumni Network is to become a part of a Thunderbird Alumni Chapter and to join the Thunderbird Alumni (Official) LinkedIn group. The school will stay connected with graduates through a variety of events and communications. ACT communicates updates to the alumni community via the Thunderbird Mobile App and the ACT website.
All alumni have been invited to help connect our students and May graduates to the very best professional opportunities. ARO and ACT are connecting fellow T-birds with excellent career opportunities, to help organizations find globally proficient talent and boost Thunderbird’s overall rankings and competitiveness amongst top business schools.
“We are working closely with Career Management and our chapter leaders to mentor our students, and support their efforts in finding internships and jobs. We look forward to seeing new graduates at the next alumni event. Wherever in the world that may be!” Joy said.
