Spotlight on a Grad (Part II)

By Sneha Gayatri & Deepali Ramaiah In the second part of our look at where our December MA, MS, and MBA ’13 graduates are headed, we look at what life post Thunderbird holds for these soon-to-be alumni: After graduation, I will put my entrepreneurial spirit to test and embark on a journey of professional development and […]

The Farewell Framework

As the year draws to an end and the trimester draws to a conclusion, familiar phrases and words keep popping up in daily conversation and my social media posts. Finals. Graduation. Last Class.

The Final Fortnight

By Adam Nilsen As I look back at my schedule for the last two weeks, I can see “class, meeting, class, meeting, class…” I have a to-do list that tracks each trimester and as each day dawns, it gets smaller and smaller. Case write-ups for Global Strategy – check. Interviews for Business Intelligence – check. […]

From the Desk of the TSG President

And with the end of this trimester, my term as the President of TSG also comes to an end. This is the last time I will be addressing all you wonderful people with […]
