    Excerpt from Entrepreneur -- "In an experiment conducted at the Stern School of Business at New York University in 2003, male and female graduate students who assessed the leadership capabilities of a real-life successful entrepreneur named Heidi were far more inclined to admire this accomplished individual when she was recast as Howard. Judging the likeability factor. Students given the case study about Heidi perceived her as 'selfish,' 'out for herself,' and 'a little political' -- in short, not as likable as Howard. When this experiment was replayed in 2013, substituting Kathryn and Martin for Heidi and Howard, students actually liked Kathryn slightly better than Martin (8 versus 7.6) -- but they didn’t trust her nearly as much (6.4 for Kathryn, 7.8 for Martin). As the evaluators explained to CNN correspondent Anderson Cooper, who staged the replay, 'men seem more genuine,' whereas women seem to be 'trying too hard,' making them less trustworthy."

    Excerpt from Next City -- "Those five stages — technical possibility, social adoption, regulatory reaction, civil disobedience, and negotiated settlement — argued [speaker Clay] Shirky, are likely going to echo throughout the sharing economy over the next few years. And we’re at least on Stage Two; Shirky told of recently trying to street-hail a Manhattan taxi cab to take his nine-year-old daughter to dance class by waving his arms and scanning the horizon. His daughter’s assessment of that approach: 'Uh, Dad, don’t you have Uber?'"

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "Everyone is worried about the economy, but overall you have to take the GDP numbers, you have to take the more macroeconomic factors as more of a 10,000-foot level and... in making specific investments, you have to narrow it down more to a company-specific investment and that's what I do in investing. That's what we do at Stern as well. I work in the student Michael Price investment fund and we're always looking at stocks. We're always evaluating different positions and poking holes in different theses..."

    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "Mr Fulop [MBA '07] describes the project as 'a great marriage' and is planning to bring another team of Stern students to work on Jersey City’s public library system. 'I’m getting top-calibre talent who are donating their time and doing meaningful work. There is no other way that I could get that type of person with the capacity to donate that type of manpower and hours without this relationship with Stern.'"

    Excerpt from TopMBA -- "Drawing on his own experiences, Banga spoke of the importance he attaches to diversity for business and leadership.

    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "When Laura Fox decided to go to business school, she chose NYU Stern for one reason: its urbanisation programme. 'Given the scale of urbanisation in the next 40 years, if we don’t get it right now, we are in real trouble,' she says. As she approaches the end of her first year, she is part of a team of three MBA students who are working with academics in the Marron Institute at NYU to help policy makers in Mexico City develop a more liveable city. 'This project is really different,' she says, 'because we are building a business-focused proposal for a policy group.'"
  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "But there is a more fundamental point, says Prof Romer: should urbanisation be restricted or actively encouraged? He is clear: 'I decided to start working on urbanisation because in developing economies I concluded that the effect of urbanisation was the fastest way for their economies to grow.'"

    Excerpt from Idealist.org -- "NYU’s Stern School of Business, in partnership with its Social Enterprise Association MBA club, established the school’s Loan Assistance Program. The program seeks to reduce the financial burden of repaying business school loans for MBA graduates who pursue nonprofit, government, or social enterprise career paths. ... A Loan Assistance Program helps enable students to think early—and seriously—about pursuing career paths that support positive change."
  • 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."
  • 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. We are looking for the kind of person who can take that information, do a self-assessment and take appropriate action."

  • fox business logo feature
    Excerpt from Fox Business -- "We hear every week of a new position taken by activist investors and we all know the names Ackman and Icahn. You have already said in the past that the value of such investors depends on the company and the situation. And, considering your decision in abstaining from the Coke vote, my question for you is: Under what circumstances would you decide to take an active role and why?"
