NYU Stern graduate and undergraduate students recently had the opportunity to hear from one of today’s leading CEOs, Marissa Mayer of Yahoo. CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo, a co-faculty member of the course, “Global Markets and Normative Frameworks,” with Stern Professors Bruce Buchanan and Jonathan Haidt, engaged Mayer in a candid discussion about her background as an engineer, her time at Google, the growth potential of Yahoo and her leadership style. Mayer explained that throughout her career she has had a passion for building things including a product, a service, a team or a company.

“Global Markets and Normative Frameworks” is offered through the Business and Society Program Area (BSPA), The purpose of BSPA is to ensure that every Stern student graduates with a strong understanding of his or her responsibilities as a business professional, and with a keen appreciation for the role of ethics and law in creating and maintaining efficient markets and best business practices.
