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.
