Pangea Delegation from Columbia Business School Visits TYO Lebanon




TYO is pleased to announce that we are collaborating for the second time with Columbia Business School's Pangea Advisors! Pangea Advisors is the pro-bono consulting group of the International Development Club at Columbia Business School. Pangea matches teams of 3-5 students with international clients every each semester. The team, supported by a faculty or professional mentor, completes a consulting engagement on a problem defined by clients. Student consultants travel to meet with their clients, gaining a unique educational experience.

This spring a team of three business school students will consult with TYO management on internet marketing and strategy. Their project kicks off this week with a trip to TYO programs in Lebanon where program manager, Nadine, has arranged a busy itinerary to introduce them to our programs and the amazing country of Lebanon. We are looking forward to the results of the project and thank the team for sharing their expertise with us. Be sure to stay tuned later this spring as each of the team members guest post right here on the TYO Blog.
