Thunderbird Online is proud to announce that we recently won the University Professional and Continuing Education Association (UPCEA) Distinguished Course Award in the Distance Learning Community of Practice.

This award recognizes new and innovative courses that utilize one or more forms of distance learning instruction to communicate with the online student. The UPCEA selected course had to incorporate specific introductory materials and performance standards in order to be nominated and considered for the award. Some of the criteria for the nominated course were discussion forums, audio and video components, available assistance, assignments and assessments. Finally, the course had to encompass a high quality writing style, writing mechanics and editorial competency.

We are proud to announce that the Advanced Global Marketing Strategy course, part of the Executive Certificate in Global Marketing, was selected as the winner of the UPCEA Distinguished Course Award in the Distance Learning Community of Practice. This course is taught by Sundaresan Ram, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Global Marketing at Thunderbird School of Global Management and world-renowned international marketing strategist. Dr. Ram is recognized for his international expertise in the areas of services marketing, innovation management, global branding and telecommunications marketing strategy. Dr. Ram is a well-published author of technical reports and book chapters, and his research has appeared in top academic and professional journals in the field. The Advanced Global Marketing Strategy course, along with the other Thunderbird Online courses, includes videos, case studies, interactive discussion forums, facilitation, global networking opportunities, assignments and assessments.
