On Campus Events

Thunderbird Private Equity Center typically holds several events each year. Our annual Global Private Equity Symposium was held on our Glendale, AZ campus, April 9-10, 2013, and featured Dörte Höppner, Secretary-General of EVCA, Josh Lerner of Harvard Business School and David Rubenstein, co-founder of The Carlyle Group. This event was a great success.


The objective of our Forums is to provide greater exposure of Thunderbird's truly global educational opportunities and overall community specific to the area of private equity, and to encourage greater global thinking in the private equity world. The scheduled forums also provide networking opportunities for T-Birds (alums, current students, faculty) and the greater Thunderbird community who work in private equity. Our goal is to position Thunderbird as the voice of globalization in private equity. Forums for 2013 will be posted as dates and locations are established.
