Hi saketkh,

What questions do you have about the program?


Best,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team


Hi Stacy,

I am interested in its Full time MBA - Traditional Program.

I know that Thunderbird is ranked #1 in Internation Business but I am not able to find any specific details about the placement scenario in T-bird?

Some websites have reported that the placement percentage is on the lower side, near about 20%. What are your views on this?

I was wondering what makes Tbird #1 B-school in International business even though the placements within 3 months of graduation are not that great. Is it because of the huge international alumni base or is it because Tbird is arguably the first B-school in the USA to teach International business? Kindly help.

Option A should be the answer for two reasons.

Correct usage of idiom - "Between" and "and"

Planners in City X noticed that many of the trees in the city were dying because of exposure to increased levels of air and water pollution. A study they commissioned revealed that sycamore trees actually thrive in environments with elevated levels of carbon monoxide, the main pollutant emitted by automobiles. In order to reverse the trend of dying trees, the city adopted a policy to replace all sick trees with sycamore trees.

Which of the following, if true, would most weaken the logic employed by the city planners?

a) In the forest, oak trees live an average of 70 years while sycamore trees only live for an average of 50 years.
b) Automobile manufacturers are developing newer car models that emit significantly fewer pollutants.
c) A survey by Urban Forests found that the sycamore is the most common tree in American cities.
d) The city recently installed low exhaust buses for its public transportation system.
e) Sycamore trees are extremely sensitive to sulfur dioxide, the main component of acid rain


I am down to choice C and E, but not able to eliminate any one of them.

E is very close choice but my confusion is that there is no mention of Sulfur dioxide or acid rain in the question. How can we deduce such information?

College professor: College students do not write nearly as well as they used to. Almost all of the papers that my students have done for me this year have been poorly written and ungrammatical.
Which one of the following is the most serious weakness in the argument made by the professor?
(A) It requires confirmation that the change in the professor's students is representative of a change among college students in general.
(B) It offers no proof to the effect that the professor is an accurate judge of writing ability.
(C) It does not take into account the possibility that the professor is a poor teacher.
(D) It fails to present contrary evidence.
(E) It fails to define its terms sufficiently.


BRIDGE THE GAP!

Professor is making a big jump here. He gives a specific example about his students and goes ahead to generalize that college students do not write nearly as well as they used to.

So, our job is to find the option which will help us connect the dots here. i.e.

"OPTION A" is the best choice here. We definately need some confirmation a specific example (professor's students) can be used to represent a general case (college students)
