Spotlight on a Grad

With only two weeks left until another class of T-birds graduate, we decided to learn from our graduating students what their plans are after Thunderbird. We are really sad to see another class go, and before they officially become tagged as “alumni”, let’s hear from three graduating students:

“Im glad that my journey in the States has not yet come to an end. After graduating, I will be working at a boutique consulting firm in Washington DC. And of course, keep up the Thunderbird spirit by keep on traveling! One thing I will miss about Thunderbird? Dancing for Regional Nights!”
Phuong Ha, MS’13

“I am excited to go back home to Utah and spend time with family for the holidays. It will be a great way to relax after graduating before I get seriously focused on finding a job. I am going to miss the good times and friendships at Thunderbird, especially the amazing experiences I have had traveling abroad with the different programs. This has been a great time of my life!”
Erik Ingebrigtsen, MBA’13

“Although I am excited to start the next phase of my career, it is still hard to believe that I am about to finish my t-bird life. After graduation, I will be joining Magna Powertrain in Detroit as a Project Manager. I am sure that I am going to miss every aspect of being a student at Thunderbird. However the one thing I am going to miss the most would be the time I had with my friends in campus. They really made Thunderbird home away from home for me.”
