My Day in Brazil

My wife Rose and I went to the Musical Instrument Museum over the weekend here is Arizona. The feature was 'Experience Brazil'! The festivities included vibrant costuming, live Brazilian music, artwork, and tasty Brazilian cuisine. We had a great time! There are so many great things to do in this amazing Arizona valley!  Enjoy the pictures!

Well Wishes for Gallagher

Our prayers and wishes for a speedy recovery are with Comedian Gallagher as he recovers from a heart attack.  According to Fox News Gallagher suffered a heart attack before his show in Texas on Wednesday.  Placed in a medical coma to "relax and recover" for the next 24 hours, doctors say his vital signs are good.  I was fortunate enough to meet Gallagher several years ago backstage at a show here in Phoenix.

Congratulations Thunderbird School of Global Management

I was happy to receive this letter from Thunderbird School of Global Management.  I am an Alumni of the school and this is great news and a great accomplishment! 

Dear T-bird,

I am very pleased to announce that Thunderbird has once again been recognized as the No. 1 business school in the "International" MBA program specialty by U.S. News & World Report magazine. This is the 17th consecutive year Thunderbird has earned this distinction from U.S. News.

As you know, earlier this year Thunderbird was ranked No. 1 in International Business by the Financial Times in its annual worldwide ranking of full-time MBA programs. Our alumni network was recognized in 2011 when The Economist ranked Thunderbird No. 1 for "Internationalism of Alumni." Thunderbird's Executive MBA program is also top-ranked, earning a No. 3 ranking in The Wall Street Journal's most recent global rankings of Executive MBA programs.

Thunderbird's top rankings by these publications recognize our expertise in developing leaders who can successfully navigate a complex, interconnected global economy. Our graduates develop a unique combination of business skills, global mindset, and social responsibility that truly sets them apart in the world of management.

Because the U.S. News & World Report "Best Graduate Schools" ranking is determined by a survey of business school deans and MBA program directors from across the country, it is a good indicator of the strength of our reputation among an increasingly competitive group of international business education providers.

Thank you for all you do to uphold Thunderbird's legacy of excellence in global management, and congratulations on this accomplishment.

Dr. Ángel Cabrera
