Thunderbird School of Global Management is a private business school in the United States, and the first and oldest graduate school[citation needed] specializing in international management and global business. Its main campus is situated in Glendale, Arizona, but it also has operations in Geneva, Switzerland; in Russia; in Beijing, China; and in Monterrey, Mexico with the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM). Thunderbird has had different official names throughout its history, including the original American Institute for Foreign Trade, American Graduate School of International Management, and Thunderbird, The American Graduate School of International Management during the nineties, and the more recent Garvin School of International Management in 2004 in recognition of alumnus Sam Garvin and his wife Rita who had pledged $60 million to the School. Since its founding, however, the School has consistently been known as Thunderbird, the name of the Glendale air base where its campus was established. In 2007 the school finally adopted Thunderbird as the official name of Thunderbird School of Global Management. An alumnus or current student of Thunderbird is sometimes referred to as a "T-bird". Thunderbird has over 38,000 alumni and 150 alumni chapters in 141 countries throughout the world. T-Bird alumni have a long-standing tradition, called First Tuesday, whereby on the first Tuesday of every month, in major cities across the globe, alumni gather for informal socializing and networking opportunities. Thunderbird has officially changed its address to 1 Global Place. The change reflects Thunderbird’s history as the world’s first and oldest graduate management school focused exclusively on global business.
