Overview

THUNDERBIRD on Global Business Strategy

No matter what line of business you are in, produce or biotech, apparel or semiconductors-you can be sure that right now an ambitious management team in some distant part of the globe is devising a strategy to undermine your position and steal away your hard-won customer base. Only a decade ago, that might have seemed like an idle threat. But when you consider the awesome power of the Internet to connect foreign competitors with suppliers and markets anywhere in the world with a keystroke not to mention the precipitous toppling of political barriers to free trade over the past decade it becomes clear that your company's competitive future now depends on your ability to think and act globally.

For more than fifty years, Thunderbird, the American Graduate School of International Management, has been preparing students to take their places as international business leaders.
