With the launch this fall of dramatic changes to the MBA curriculum at the Thunderbird School of Global Management, students will be able to complete their studies in one year, a format more common in Europe than in the United States.

“This is a significant departure for Thunderbird and American MBA programs,” says Larry Edward Penley, president of the school.
