On Thursday, February 7th, Sy Syms School of Business Professor Robert Tufts led a workshop at MTA, which focused on how to develop a business plan.  The workshop is part of MTA LEAD, a one-of-a-kind entrepreneurship program designed to empower talmidim with the ability to build on their entrepreneurial ideas and create meaningful and sustainable business projects, while gaining lasting business and communal leadership skills.  Talmidim who participate in the program are mentored by industry leaders, as they work in teams to develop their projects. Professor Tufts is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the Sy Syms School of Business at Yeshiva University, where he teaches courses in the Business Strategy and Entrepreneurship Department.  He holds a degree in Economics from Princeton University and an MBA in Finance from the Columbia University School of Business and worked on Wall Street for over twenty years in futures and foreign exchange and in domestic equities sales and trading. He was also a professional baseball player and pitched in the major leagues during parts of the 1981-1983 seasons for the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals.  Talmidim enjoyed hearing from Professor Tufts and strategizing ways to develop their own business plans with an expert in the field. They also loved hearing about what it’s like to play for the MLB.
