Starting and growing a company takes courage anywhere. But the challenges are multiplied for men and women at the base of the pyramid in emerging markets such as Afghanistan, Haiti, Peru and Indonesia. Aspiring entrepreneurs in these countries have passion and tenacity, but they often lack knowledge to write business plans, manage cash flow and market their enterprises. Business schools teach these skills, but the cost of an MBA excludes many trapped in cycles of poverty. Thunderbird for Good works to tear down these barriers through management education programs that support nontraditional students on campus and abroad in the places where they live and work. Graduates of our programs create jobs, share knowledge and improve living conditions in their communities. We invite you to join us as a donor, mentor, student or partner.
