Business School Honors Students and Faculty at Annual Awards Dinner
Yeshiva University’s Sy Syms School of Business celebrated its 27th anniversary and the graduating class of 2014 with a gala awards dinner on April 30 at the Museum of Jewish Heritage. The evening honored students and faculty who excelled academically and professionally, demonstrated exceptional character and exemplify the significant strengthening of Sy Syms.
