Flatbush Students Attend NY Jets Sports Business Day

Earlier this year Yeshivah of Flatbush students, accompanied by faculty member Leor Kweller, traveled to MetLife Stadium. The students participated in the annual NY Jets Sports Business Day and had the opportunity to meet with leading members of the New York Jets business team and get an inside view at the business end of running a professional sports franchise.
The students heard presentations from several Jets executives during their interactive tour, including members of the marketing, sales, partnerships, finance, hospitality, and customer service departments. Each presenter spoke about their personal path that lead them to the Jets family and specific aspects of their jobs. Students had the opportunity to ask questions and make contacts for future internships. Following the presentations students were able to visit the Jets locker room and tour the field. The students learned a great deal about the business side of sports.
