Business and Finance

Launched in June 2016, the CTE Business and Finance Commission is the newest commission in the NYC CTE portolio. Serving CTE business programs in over 30 schools across the five boroughs, the Business and Finance commission seeks to provide opportunities for students in one of NYC's strongest industry sectors. The commission is chaired by Melanie Mortimer, President of the SIFMA Foundation.

Priorities for 2016-17

  • Launch of the Business Commission: Launched in June, 2016 by the CTE Team and Commission Chair Melanie Mortimer of SIFMA, the Business Commission held its first ever convening at the SIFMA offices in lower Manhattan. With approximately 50 representatives from schools, industry and the DOE, the first meetings have attested to the strength of NYC CTE Business Programs.
  • The Nick Cannon Foundation America’s Teen Mogul (ATM) Business Plan Competition: Launched on October 14, 2016, NYC’s CTE Business Programs were invited to participate in the America’s Teen Mogul (ATM) competition. Teams are invited to register and take part in a series of training sessions throughout the spring. This will culminate in a major NYC event in which students present their business plans and a career fair will be held for younger students.
  • CTE Industry Scholars Program: With Network Intermediaries NAF and VEI, the DOE CTE team looks to expand the breadth of work based learning opportunities for NYC CTE business students.
