Online Master of Applied Leadership & Management

In the Online MALM program, you earn an accredited master's degree from the globally recognized Thunderbird School of Global Management, but you will do so in a flexible online format (the MALM is a master of applied leadership and management, not a master of arts degree). The program curriculum is based on examining leadership and management through the lens of high growth and emerging markets. This focus allows students in emerging markets to learn practical skills in a relevant context, while also providing a global view of business for non-emerging market students. You are introduced to the program by completing four online courses offered by Thunderbird through the edX MicroMasters. The MicroMasters courses account for eight credit hours of study, 27% of the total credit requirements for the MALM degree. The other 22 credits are completed after students enroll in the MALM program.
