Arizona State University is moving its Thunderbird School of Global Management campus from Glendale to downtown Phoenix. The new building, estimated to cost between $40 million and $50 million will be between First and Second streets, north of Polk, next to the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law. Construction of the new building is expected to be finished by January 2021. It will include space for classrooms, meetings, enclave and office space and will include two levels for executive education. It also will have a rooftop function space.
“Locating Thunderbird with other ASU schools and departments on the downtown Phoenix campus will provide greater community embeddedness and enhanced resources for Thunderbird students and faculty,” ASU President Michael M. Crow said in a prepared statement. “This move also brings Thunderbird closer to other university schools and departments and to the private- and public-sector forces in downtown Phoenix that are engaged in international business and non-profit organizational activity.”
