Save the Date, October 14th, for the TEMBA Bazaar!
Each trimester, the Thunderbird Emerging Markets Business Association hosts the TEMBA Bazaar, an opportunity for students from around the globe to explore new cultures with a particular focus on emerging markets and developing economies. What is widely believed to be the event of the year, the TEMBA Bazaar offers students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to explore international business opportunities, try delectable global cuisines, and better get to know the cultures and customs of their friends and neighbors. Additionally, the TEMBA Bazaar is a platform from which to learn more about the international opportunities for each program at Thunderbird.
This years’ TEMBA Bazaar will be held October 14th, from 6-8pm, in the Old Pub, a nostalgic area of campus that many new students never get the opportunity to see. The program will feature footage from past TEM labs as well as special guest, TEM Lab Program Director Charles Reeves, who will be present to reveal the structure of the new International Immersion Projects (IIP) available to both MGM and MAGAM students. The new program is anticipated to mirror the ideals of the TEM Lab (client-facing, project-based applied learning immersion project) but in a format appropriate for each degree program.
Additionally, the TEMBA Bazaar will offer the Thunderbird a community to bid farewell to the current TEM Lab teams, headed to Senegal, Nepal, Romania and Peru, who leave in the third week of October for five weeks.
Don’t miss out on this exciting event and the opportunity to become part of such a quintessential Thunderbird experience. Hope to see you there! To volunteer, or for more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
