    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "The former Rainforest Alliance President and current Director of the Center for Sustainable Business at NYU Stern, Tensie Whelan, reminded the audience concerned with the potential impact of the new administration on climate initiatives, that, of the US latest GDP of close to US$ 18 trillion, US$ 15.6 trillion came from business in the US. Business is not waiting for the Federal Government to tell it what to do, and today less than ever."

    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "'Proving actual manipulation is a difficult task, which is why so very few such cases have been proven to date,' said Rosa M. Abrantes-Metz, an adjunct professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business and an expert on market manipulation. 'It can be difficult to distinguish between someone who affects prices in a legitimate way simply because they are a large trader, versus someone who purposely moves prices away from market fundamentals while fooling the rest of the market.'"

    Excerpt from The Guardian -- "The growth of healthy convenience foods such as meal kits and freshly prepared meals, both from grocery stores and delivery services, is mostly a positive thing for health and sustainability, says Hans Taparia, an assistant professor at the New York University Stern School of Business and co-founder of an organic food business."

    Excerpt from -- "'Amazon does pose a major threat,' said Anindya Ghose, Professor of Marketing at New York University's Leonard N. Stern School of Business. 'It is incredibly difficult for a firm like Flipkart or Snapdeal to find a sustainable unique selling point in e-commerce retailing that will help differentiate them from the 800 pound gorilla in the room.'"

    Excerpt from Fast Company -- "'Work is most people’s primary social network and an important source of identity,' says NYU professor and sharing economy expert Arun Sundararajan. 'As more and more people do not have this institutional affiliation, and are working more independently, cities will need to work to develop new community infrastructures, to be community creators for their freelance workforces.'"

    Excerpt from CBC Radio -- "There is a potential for this to be a bit of a slippery slope here...Trump can't go company by company offering deals for states where he's not even sure if the governor of the state would be willing to go along with those."

  • time magazine logo feature
    Excerpt from TIME -- "Under Henry, Stern has also increasingly come to see diversity in the business world as an imperative of 21st century finance, as companies change their leadership ranks to reflect the growing percentages of minorities in the U.S. population (and the growing purchasing power of other countries), in order to understand their consumers. Over the past year, the school has boosted the number of scholarships it offers, including the number of full rides for undergrads, from zero to 35; many go to first-generation minority students."
  • cnbc logo feature
    Excerpt from CNBC -- "We've got these two sort of dichotomous situations, right? Tech company versus transportation company. And clearly Uber is something in between. But we've got regulations that are pretty onerous that apply to transportation companies, and so from Uber's point of view, it's better to categorize themselves as a tech company. What we really should be doing is recognizing... that we've got a new category of business models here."

    Excerpt from Fox 5 -- "Machines have become much better at dealing with input directly from the real world...that really changes the role they can play. They can deal with more unstructured data and do more and more of what humans used to take for granted."

    Excerpt from ProPublica -- "The potential for Trump’s decisions as president to impact his business holdings loom large. 'What happens if there are federal activities in the proximity of these golf courses or hotels that positively or negatively impact their value,' said Lawrence White, a professor of economics at New York University’s Stern School of Business and a former federal antitrust regulator. 'He’s got a zillion things going on and I don’t see how he can effectively disengage.'"
  • nbc news online logo
    Excerpt from NBC News -- "'Conversion rates, which used to be a bottleneck in the past, are no longer as much of an impediment,' [Ghose] said. This is for two reasons: Shoppers today are more comfortable shopping on their phones, and stores have invested in technology, like credit card image-capturing, that makes transactions more seamless."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "This is because banks use deposits with short maturities and low rates of interest to fund loans with longer maturities and higher rates of interest, said New York University Stern School of Business professor Lawrence White. 'When the yield curve flattens—as it has, because interest rates generally are quite low and zero is the lower bound for deposits—bank profitability generally suffers,' he added."
  • reuters logo feature
    Excerpt from Reuters -- "'The End of Accounting' is a book that starts from the premise that the numbers companies publish every three, six or 12 months are no longer up to the job. Balance sheets have barely changed since the 19th century. Profit and loss statements were conceived before World War II. Both are better suited to businesses that make physical goods, and investors who don't measure trades in millionths of a second. The result is that these reams of paper - or pages of online text - no longer drive company valuations."
  • reuters logo feature
    Excerpt from Reuters -- "They are often what economists Xavier Gabaix and David Laibson have referred to as 'myopic' – they don’t take account of extra costs when forking out the basic price of a good or service. Hotels whacking guests with high internet charges is a classic example. That raises the possibility that a tenant will max out their affordability on rent, and then get hit by extras."

    Excerpt from Accepted -- "Alumnus Lorenzo Fertitta (MBA ’93) and his brother Frank J. Fertitta III have given New York University’s Stern School of Business a $15 million endowment gift to create a new program exclusively for U.S. military veteran and active duty students who will be entering the school’s full-time MBA program next year. The school predicts that approximately 20 entering full-time MBA military students who are accepted into the Fertitta Veterans Program will receive scholarship assistance that reduces their tuition to $30,000 per year. Students qualifying for veteran benefits, including Yellow Ribbon funding, will continue to be entitled to receive those benefits."

    Excerpt from Evolllution -- "I am a strong believer in marketing and brand building. I think that many of the concepts that I teach in my core marketing course can be applied to the management of higher education institutions. Other than brand building, all organizations need a strong marketing strategy and what we call a value proposition: why a student would come to, say, NYU rather than another university. Other key marketing principles are distribution and communications. For example, with respect to distribution, many universities are not adding online educational offerings beyond traditional bricks and mortar."

    Excerpt from Reuters -- "Nearly a fifth of all U.S. companies that exit bankruptcy as a going concern seek creditor protection again within about five years, according to Edward Altman, a professor emeritus at the Stern School of Business at New York University."
  • Mashable Logo
    Excerpt from Mashable -- "When you're predicting frequent versus infrequent events, it's a whole different ball game, when it comes to making predictions. So it's one thing if you have lots and lots of examples of someone having bought something or having done something and you're making a prediction, versus a situation where it's a one-time event that you're predicting, and so you don't have actual occurrences of winners and losers in presidential elections. There are so few."
  • bloomberg logo feat
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "The Fed actually is very rule-like in its behavior. It thinks about rules all the time. But they're not slavish, and that's important because they realize there are factors other than a simple rule that should govern monetary policy."
