    A new report issued jointly by the NYU Pollack Center for Law & Business and Cornerstone Research finds that U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission enforcements against public companies and their subsidiaries increased more than 50 percent in fiscal year 2015 and are on a pace to equal or exceed that high-water mark in FY 2016.

    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "In my professional career I am most proud of the entrepreneurial endeavors I’ve taken on before and during my time at Stern. I have a production company, Little Red Ro Productions, through which I’ve produced several short films. While at school, I co-created the Little Bright Notebook, a project design tool for creative types and entrepreneurs, along with my classmate Lenore Champagne Beirne. Stern does a great job of creating a diverse and interesting class of students each year. Our collaboration is a perfect example of two people with wildly different backgrounds and areas of expertise coming together to build something that helps the broader creative community. I’m not sure we would have crossed paths were it not for Stern."

    Excerpt from NPR -- "'It was truly remarkable how much more effect Mrs. Obama had on the commercial fashion industry that almost any other celebrity you could find in any other commercial setting,' Yermack says. And it wasn't just a freak blip on the graph: 'This would be a very permanent thing,' Yermack emphasized. 'The stocks would not go down the next day. So to put a number on it for just a generic company at a routine event, it was worth about $38 million to have Mrs. Obama wear your clothes.'"
  • BusinessBecause
    Excerpt from BusinessBecause -- "'Data is their business. It's the growth path for all of them,' said Vasant Dhar, NYU Stern professor of business and data science, and editor of the Big Data journal. 'The advice I give students these days is to take as many courses as possible that require working with real data,' he added."

    Excerpt from Fortune -- "Governments should view Uber and Lyft as friends, not enemies. As I argue in my book ‘The Sharing Economy,’ society’s interests are served well when governments partner with platforms in the creation and enforcement of regulation rather than treating them as its target."
  • thinkers50 192x144
    Excerpt from Thinkers50 -- "Perhaps we need additional frameworks. But I think we probably need a little bit of attention to what kind of criteria we might be able to use to separate interesting frameworks from frameworks that in some essential sense, really don't meet the test of history based on frameworks we've seen come and go."
  • new york magazine
    Excerpt from New York Magazine -- "Humans don’t, as a general rule, do well with ambiguity. We like to tell clear, coherent stories about the world we see in front of us, and success is no exception. Hindsight bias, which is — and I’m just going to go with the Wikipedia definition here, because it’s good — 'the inclination, after an event has occurred, to see the event as having been predictable, despite there having been little or no objective basis for predicting it,' can partly explain how we come up with stories that cause us to discount the role of luck. Frank provided two examples of how hindsight bias warps our understanding of success in this manner: the Mona Lisa and Bryan Cranston."
  • huffington post logo feature
    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "There is an enormous gap between free trade as it is taught in textbooks and advocated by those who benefit from it and free trade as it is actually practiced in today’s world. Textbooks still unabashedly teach the virtues of free trade, but their arguments assume a world of pure market forces. But the American people don’t live in a world that is anything like that."

    Excerpt from The Economic Times -- "It can be nice to imagine the much-derided banking industry unmoored from our daily needs, left to scramble for business like other non-essential industries. Of course, our transaction histories would be much more visible to governments than they are today . This imaginary world of effectively socialized money is being seriously discussed by researchers and central bankers alike. In a new paper, Max Raskin and David Yermack of New York University talk about it as a distinct possibility, albeit a radical one that 'carries significant risks for the rest of the financial system.'"
  • Short Courses_Digital Marketing_feature
    This Executive Education Short Course program examines best-practices related to the business use of social media and digital marketing. While there will be sufficient attention given to top level strategy used by companies adopting social media and digital marketing, the course will also focus on digital analytics oriented tools: how to make organizations more intelligent in how they conduct business in the digital age.

    Excerpt from Techonomy -- "There's a number of different ways in which IoT and the sharing economy are going to interface. As you sort of start to give a household device, for example, the ability to know where it is, the ability to know how much is being used, and in some sense, the ability to call on transport when it needs it, you dramatically increase the potential for peer-to-peer rental marketplaces."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Helping establish a guild is a savvy decision by Uber, said Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University’s business school who’s writing a book titled 'The Sharing Economy.' 'They’re nurturing their relationship with their drivers,' he said. 'It seems like a smart move.'"
  • fortune logo feature
    Excerpt from Fortune -- "The trouble comes if Cirrix buys too many of LendingClub’s loans, which is possible with Lending Club as a partial investor. 'If 80% of [Cirrix’s] portfolio is in LendingClub, it is very dangerous,' says Aswath Damodaran, professor of finance at the Stern School of Business at New York University. 'You become almost a quasi-bank, and you need to worry about all the things that banks do.'"
  • huffington post logo feature
    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "It’s basically an issue of supply and demand, Lisa Leslie, an associate management professor at New York University and one of the paper’s authors, told The Huffington Post. 'There’s a market for high-potential women. If you want them in senior ranks, you’ll have to pay them more,' she said."
  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "'This is a bold move. It’s a bit like if Apple changed its name to "innovation", because one of the core associations of (Budweiser) is already America,' said Scott Galloway, a professor at New York University. 'It could be a stroke of genius, but I think it’s a risky change … to what is arguably one of the world’s greatest brands.'"
  • quartz logo
    Excerpt from Quartz -- "Roy Smith, an ex-Goldman Sachs partner and a professor at NYU’s Stern School of Business, says Goldman, which declined to comment for this article, has plenty of incentive to put technology to work. 'Under the [financial] burden of regulation, firms have to evolve into things that use big technology more than they did in the past,' he says, adding that Goldman CEO Lloyd Blankfein 'is also saying [the firm] may get into some businesses that can be operated technologically, without many human beings involved.'"
  • am new york logo
    Excerpt from amNewYork -- "There is 'a lot of information that individual citizens have that often stays with them,' says Arun Sundararajan, professor at the Stern School of Business at New York University and author of 'The Sharing Economy.' That information, from potholes to trash pick-up, can be funneled to local government. Other easy uses of a digital mentality, says Sundararajan, could include digitally-enabled ridesharing that would allow people to share NYC taxis a la UberPool, saving time and reducing road-hours."
  • quartz logo
    Excerpt from Quartz -- "'Startup devaluations…can be a blessing in disguise, in the sense that it makes the company leadership take a close hard look at the current monetisation model, re-evaluate any fragilities and make strategic and tactical adjustments accordingly,' Anindya Ghose, director of New York University’s Center for Business Analytics said."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "It is unusual for public officials to call for a weaker dollar, even if a cheaper currency makes U.S. exports cheaper, said Richard Sylla, an economist at New York University. Advocating for a stronger dollar 'assures both people at home and foreigners that the U.S. is wanting to run sound fiscal policies and sound monetary policies,' he said."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "I came to believe that fundamental changes are needed in the way we think about macroeconomics, as well as the way central banks manage their economies. A key role of a market economy is to link the present and the future, and to coordinate decisions about spending and production not only today but tomorrow and in the years thereafter."

    Around the world, women with equivalent abilities and qualifications earn 80 percent or less than men. However, new research from NYU Stern Professor Lisa Leslie finds that this gender pay gap is not uniform among all female employees and reverses into a pay premium for certain women.
