Favorite NYIT Memory Trish recalls one class in which she and her classmates wrote a detailed business plan to create a low-cost, regional commuter air transport company. "Shortly after we submitted our plan, we’d discovered that someone else had almost the exact same idea and opened a start-up airline in the same locations!"
A World of Opportunity Trish chose NYIT because it afforded her the opportunity to learn in a global environment.
