100 Million Learners Global Initiative

The Francis and Dionne Najafi 100 Million Learners Global Initiative offers online, global education in 40 different languages including Arabic, at absolutely no cost to the learner.

The Global Initiative is led by Thunderbird School of Global Management, prominent with its distinguished faculty and reputation as the vanguard in global leadership and management education (No. 1 in the world in international trade as ranked by QS International Trade Rankings 2023), and Arizona State University, ranked No. 1 for innovation in the United States for nine consecutive years (U.S. News & World Report).

Bringing Premium American education to Kuwait

The 100 Million Learners Global Initiative offers learners three pathways to advance their personal and their professional development.

Learners will earn badges for each digital course they satisfactorily complete and a certificate for successfully completing all the courses within a program. Learners who satisfactorily complete the intermediate or advanced programs can apply for academic credit, which can be used toward the completion of degrees at Thunderbird/ASU, and virtually any university across the globe.

The first course launched April 8, 2022, coinciding with the celebration of Thunderbird’s Grand Opening and 75th Anniversary Global Reunion, which officially unveiled the new, state-of-the-art global headquarters in downtown Phoenix. The first 20 languages were made available by February 2023, with subsequent courses and languages rolling out continuously thereafter.
