For the Business Administration and Entrepreneurship program, Enderun Colleges is partnered with Thunderbird Online, a professional development division of Thunderbird School of Global Management in Arizona, USA. Students can expect an integration of online learning with in-classroom instruction. Upon completion of a three-course track from Thunderbird Online, students will receive an Executive Certificate in Global Leadership after graduation.
