Title of Motion: Request from the Thunderbird School of Global Management for the establishment of a graduate degree – Master of Global Management
Action Requested: The Curriculum and Academic Programs Committee recommends University Senate approval of a proposal submitted by the Thunderbird School of Global Management – for the establishment of a graduate degree – Master of Global Management
Rationale: Offering this degree as part of ASU’s Thunderbird School of Global Management will retain Thunderbird’s outstanding reputation in global management, loyal alumni base, and strong relationships with employers. This degree will also complement other ASU degrees and can be later proposed to be offered as a concurrent degree with the W. P. Carey MBA, other ASU graduate degrees (e.g. Law or Public Programs), and with partner schools around the world.
The target market for this degree are prospective students who are interested in an advanced business degree with a global focus. The target audience is expected to be heavily international and draw students from around the world who want a business degree from a top-notch American University, but with a global focus.
