Why I'm Proud To Be A T-Bird!

Thunderbird is not your typical school. One of the things that differentiates Thunderbird is its strong commitment to "Global Citizenship".

In addition to educating "traditional" students via degree and non-degree programs, the school also has a program called Thunderbird For Good (TFG), which focuses on "non-traditional" channels of education.

Thunderbird recently welcomed its third class of Project Artemis Fellows - fifteen Afghan women entrepreneurs. During their two weeks on campus, the participants receive business and leadership training. The program also includes ongoing mentor support.

You can read more about their activities over the next few days via this blog.

Another project that TFG is involved with is 10,000 Women. This is a Goldman Sachs initiative to provide business and management education to 10,000 underserved women. Goldman has committed $100M towards this project! ...and Thunderbird is one of the partner schools!
