    Excerpt from Fortune -- "Roubini said the European Union and the Euro were looking a lot stronger than a year ago. He also said 'Abenomics' appears to be working in Japan, and the risk of a recession has receded there. But the biggest improvement, Roubini thought, is taking place in the U.S. The deficit has shrunk and Washington appears to have called a truce."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Even as the case continues, Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business, said he would like to see Airbnb and lawmakers find a way to come up with [a] new set of guidelines that distinguish between occasional users of the service and those who are doing it on a much larger scale with multiple apartments. 'We need a new regulatory framework that is reasonable and inclusive of providing this new form of short-term accommodation commercially,' he said."
  • poets and quants logo
    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "More than anything I’m grateful for the amount of resources that the Entrepreneurs Challenge—and NYU—afforded us. Everything imaginable that you need to get your business going—a framework, mentors, continual feedback—they gave us. I can’t say enough about the coaches, mentors, judges, and all the people we were introduced to throughout the process. As first-time entrepreneurs, they were incredibly helpful and always willing to share their time. So even if we would have lost, it still would’ve all been worth it."
  • reuters logo feature
    Excerpt from Reuters -- "If the United States' primary goal has been to keep violence in Ukraine and tensions between outside powers to a minimum, it has made a series of significant missteps. The United States failed to offer real economic support to the Ukrainian government before events reached a crescendo."

  • us news and world report logo feature

  • topMBA logo
    Excerpt from TopMBA -- "The MBA admissions committee has seen strengths in your application, but there may be ways to improve your candidacy. We are looking for people who have the personal initiative to improve themselves. We provide detailed information about what we evaluate and why on our website.

    Excerpt from Admit1MBA -- "We recognize that our New York City location is attractive to many applicants, and we offer many opportunities for applicants to visit us and engage with our community – from our fall class visit program, to our new Future of Business series with faculty to special interview days in the winter and spring.

  • Excerpt from The Economist -- "Pankaj Ghemawat, of Spain’s IESE and NYU’s Stern business schools, calculates that only 12% of the world’s Fortune Global 500—the largest corporations by revenue—are led by a CEO who hails from a country other than the one in which the company is headquartered."
  • fox business logo feature
    Excerpt from Fox Business -- "I think it's actually a perfect fit. I see complete synergy between the brands because, when you think about it, the actual guy who designed the headphones used to be the head of design at Apple... People have to stop thinking about Apple as a technology company now and start thinking of them as a fashion and a lifestyle brand... They're also the disruptors... they wouldn't go and acquire someone who's just copied them. And if you look at what Beats did, they're the complete opposite to Apple. So Apple's coming out with these little light headphones, they came out with these big heavy bass headphones. Apple was coming out with something very subtle you hardly see, they were coming out with something very obvious."
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Professors were more responsive to white male students than to female, black, Hispanic, Indian or Chinese students in almost every discipline and across all types of universities. We found the most severe bias in disciplines paying higher faculty salaries and at private universities."

  • cnnmoney logo feature
    Excerpt from CNNMoney -- "'Quits going up is a sign that people have more confidence in their ability to find another job,' says Tom Cooley, an economics professor at New York University's Stern School of Business. However, Cooley adds that this report's relatively small change in people quitting their jobs is fairly insignificant because tiny fluctuations are often within the margins of error."
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'To position it as a status symbol, as something you buy to impress other people, doesn’t make sense,' [Meyvis] said. 'Other people don’t see it. You don’t talk about it. It makes more sense for mattress advertising to take a functional approach that provides a solution to a problem,' as the ComforPedic iQ campaign does, he said."

  • bloomberg logo feat
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "The process for initial offerings has been evolving for centuries. Among the first IPOs in America was in 1791 for the Bank of the United States, started by Alexander Hamilton. The offering, made through newspaper advertisements, allowed the public the right to purchase a share for $25. 'In the early days of the U.S., there wasn’t such a developed investment-banking industry,' said Richard Sylla, chairman of the Museum of American Finance and an economics professor at New York University Stern School of Business."

  • bloomberg logo feat
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "The percentage of the traffic you get from Facebook to a retailer does not convert at a high rate. The traffic is what we could call low-grade traffic. Whereas, the traffic coming off of Instagram tends to convert at a high rate and have a higher average order value when people do buy."

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "In the study, titled 'Evasive Shareholder Meetings,' David Yermack, a New York University professor of finance, and Yuanzhi Li, a finance professor at Temple University, said they used 'the geography of meetings as a proxy for the evasiveness of management.' Compiling data on nearly 10,000 annual meetings held by more than 2,300 publicly traded companies from 2006 to 2010, they found that companies that held meetings at least 50 miles away from their headquarters and 50 miles away from a major airport generally underperformed the stock market by about 7 percent over the next six months."

    Excerpt from Gigaom -- "Part of a data scientist’s role is to automate his or her own work, leading to tools like prediction APIs. But these APIs are starting to replace data scientists in some areas, and that should be considered a good thing. We are now in the era of big data 2.0, as defined by Foster Provost and Tom Fawcett in Data Science for Business."

    Excerpt from Next City -- "How does it feel to become the first public intellectual of the Age of the Sharing Economy? 'It feels good,' Sundararajan says with a laugh. It’s gratifying that his ideas are having an impact, but he sees in it a responsibility: More academics should think about shepherding 'good thinking' into public policy and social change. 'It’s something I’ve prioritized to some extent.'"

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "From little butter almond flavored pastries that come free with each coffee at Financier shops in New York City, to free hemming of pants over $29.95 at Uniqlo, to free Cosmos served at Dashing Diva nail salons in New York City, customer touchpoints can be powerful differentiators vs. competitors and can also generate significant buzz and earned media!"
