At Google, we believe that the need for information crosses all borders and therefore spend a significant amount of resources localizing and launching our products in new markets. With over 38,000 alumni living and running businesses in 140 countries around the world, few educational institutions understand the need for a global perspective and share the challenges of communicating with an international audience like Thunderbird business school. That's why we're excited to announce that Thunderbird is providing Google Apps for Education, our integrated email, IM and calendaring offering, to all of its students and alumni. (The fact that our email interface is available in 40 languages is a huge plus for them.) Now the Thunderbird administration has an easy way to keep with alumni without having to figure out the postage rate to Paraguay and alumni around the world can more easily collaborate on business opportunities or plan a mini-reunion. Read more about the deployment in their press release.
