What is your club’s mission statement/ why is this club important?:

TAMID is a highly competitive program offering a unique opportunity to expand your network, receive hands-on business experience, gain exposure to the Israeli economic landscape, and possibly partake in a once in a lifetime summer experience in Israel. Beginning with an interactive classroom curriculum, the program soon progresses into three different tracks- Consulting, Fund and Tech- this gives members hands-on experience with companies in the heart of the start up nation. Membership to the TAMID Group is also a chance to build your capacity as a leader by learning from TAMID students both at YU and across our national collegiate network (60 campuses strong).
