Career Management Center seeks global ambassadors

Dear T-birds,

I recently started working as Director of Alumni Engagement for the Career Management Center at Thunderbird. I would like to express a heartfelt thank you for all your contributions to our alma mater and the commitments you have made in the past. I have had the opportunity to meet many of you over the past few years, when I have worked at Thunderbird in my previous roles in institutional advancement and alumni relations. I now look forward to meeting many more of you.

As business school alumni, we all know the importance of return on investments and can appreciate that one of the key returns that most T-bird graduates seek is a job that meets their career aspirations. We have made strides in making this a reality and continue to seek ways to improve on our existing processes and ideas. As global leaders, the subject matter expertise you have is incomparable and a great resource for our students to help them with career preparations, decisions and connections. In my current role, I aspire to partner with our alumni community and harness your thought leadership to help our students become gainfully employed members of the T-bird Alumni Network that we are so proud of. There are a plethora of ways to get engaged, and one of them is to become a Thunderbird Global Ambassador. Please sign up using this link and let us know in which areas you would be interested in participating. As one of your conduits to the school, I encourage you to please reach out to me at gbemi.disu@thunderbird.edu if you have any ideas, suggestions or want to share opportunities with our students. I look forward to connecting with you all in the near future. Thank you again for all you do.

Best regards,
Gbemi Disu ’06
