Recently, Tutors for All partnered with a team from Boston University’s School of Management. The BU team, comprised of four senior MBA candidates, was aiming to advise a local nonprofit in strategic planning and long-term growth. Included in the plan were suggested modes for expansion, both in-state and out-of-state, methods for measuring program-school compatibility, avenues to maximize funding via foundations and entitlements, and systems to optimize program productivity, and efficiency.
The team presented the final growth model May 4th to an audience of TfA staff, partners, local education leaders, and potential advisory board members. The presentation met critical acclaim and a lively discussion ensued in which audience members deliberated over the finer aspects of the model. Tutors for All Executive Director Mark Destler noted the success of the presentation and his excitement in its potential.
