Bronx, NY — Joined by friends and family at Yankee Stadium to celebrate his graduation from the New York University, Mayor Richard W. Thomas achieved his Executive Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the Leonard N. Stern School of Business. At 33, Thomas is the youngest ever elected Mayor in the city’s history, BW hopes he will apply the business practices earned from NYU Stern School of Business Executive MBA program to run our local government.
Mayor Thomas said, “This is an occasion I will never forget. To be joined by my wife, family and friends to graduate from an institution like NYU is incredible. I am a strong believer in education and a proud product of Mount Vernon schools. I want the children of Mount Vernon to know that they can reach for the stars if they put their hearts in it.”
Congratulations Mayor Richard Thomas on this great achievement.
