On April 8, 1946, Thunderbird School of Global Management (originally known as the American Institute for Foreign Trade [AIFT]) was chartered on the Glendale, Ariz. World War II airbase, Thunderbird Field, where pilots from around the world came for training during wartime. General Barton Kyle Yount obtained the airfield with the express purpose of developing a school focused exclusively on international trade and global relations.
Thunderbird Executive Education offers open programs for individuals seeking career development opportunities and custom programs for global organizations looking for individualized development solutions for their unique challenges.
The Merle A. Hinrichs International Business Information Centre (IBIC) is the library for Thunderbird School of Global Management.
The IBIC was built in 1994. Its low sweeping curve, horizontal lines, sandstone exterior with southwestern colors and desert landscaping are evocative of Native American cliff dwellings and provide a picturesque setting for study, reflection and creativity. During the day, the interior receives plentiful indirect natural light. At night, the luminous building spills light into the courtyard from its floor-to-ceiling windows, making the IBIC an attractive spot for evening studies and group meetings.
