Dr. Larry Penley recently became President of the Thunderbird School of Global Management. He's also become a good friend and supporter of Today's Campus. Larry was one of our first video guests as a panelist speaking about potential implications of gainful employment regulations. Since then, Larry has served as the Chief Academic Officer for Thunderbird. Prior to his new presidency, Larry was President at Colorado State University, Dean of the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University, and chairman of the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), a world leader in accreditation services.
In this interview, Larry and I talk a little about the history of Thunderbird, what inspires him moving forward as its president, and his perspectives on leadership in varying organizations.
