  • poets and quants logo
    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "Not only is the center centrally located — four blocks from the Capitol building and 15 minutes from the airport and Union Station — but it also allows the program’s structure and infrastructure to be entirely owned by NYU and Stern. That’s something Sundaram points to as an important factor in deciding to take the EMBA to a new region. He adds that the proximity from New York to Washington makes for relatively short commute for professors who teach in the program."
  • Washington Business Journal logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from the Washington Business Journal -- "Students can expect 'an intellectual espresso,' as Henry describes it — a high-impact, high-energy experience that includes social time, professional networking and a deep dive into coursework. Each student will complete about 20 classes, or 60 credits, and faculty will be hand-picked from the New York campus. Students also complete a global study tour, which consists of a week living in another market outside of the U.S."
  • bloomberg logo feat
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "We need a serious approach to address the skills gap. What I'd like to see, for instance... So we have $2.5 trillion sitting off shore, and we were talking about tax reform. ... Even if you said to U.S. firms, we're going to allow you to bring all those $2.5 trillion assets back tax-free, just a 5% charge, to fund a national skills development pool, that would give you a $250 billion endowment to begin thinking about seriously addressing the skills gap, for instance. I've seen nothing that bold on the table to really say that we're going to address the downsides of globalization."
  • EMBADCfeature
    New York University Stern School of Business is extending its New York City-based Executive MBA program (EMBA) to downtown Washington, D.C.

  • economic times logo feature
    Excerpt from the Economic Times -- "A 2014 article co-authored by Pankaj Ghemawat and Herman Vantrappen in Harvard Business Review pointed out that India’s share of expat CEO exports stood at 30% and imports at 3%. This is in sharp contrast to, say, the UK where CEO exports stood at 32% and imports at 42%. The study was based on Fortune 500 data for 2013."
  • bigthink logo feature
    Excerpt from Big Think -- "'These findings have important implications for consumers, educators, and businesses,' Prof. Barasch said. Educators should think about how they present information and what they want students to walk away with. Businesses can concentrate on the impression they want customers to leave with. And, 'Individuals may think twice now before pulling out the camera.' Now that we understand how picture taking affects us, we can better decide whether or not to snap off a photo, by how it’ll impact our experience and memory of it."
  • new york magazine
    Excerpt from New York Magazine -- "All this local controversy, in turn, became a temporary focus of the roiling national debate over campus activism, free speech, and so on. NYU professor Jonathan Haidt, a leading figure in that conversation, wrote a statement defending some of Wax’s claims and arguing that 'collective actions' like the letters published denouncing Wax 'are only appropriate when colleagues have clearly and flagrantly violated their professional duties.'"
  • barrons logo feature
    Excerpt from Barron's -- "Benchmark deviants can swing high—or low. Funds with high active share—the percentage of holdings that differ from the fund's benchmark index—tend to outperform, so long as managers pick the right securities. Yakov Amihud, a professor of finance at New York University's Leonard N. Stern School of Business, says his research shows that every 10% deviation from an index affects annual return by eight percentage points."
     
  • marketwatch logo feature
    Excerpt from MarketWatch -- "'The CEO of Equifax said that the breach is "disappointing" when he should have said it is a disaster of no less consequence than a car manufacturer telling you your tires are defective and are putting you at grave risk,' Dhar, who studies cybersecurity and financial technology, said. 'This is NO different and it reflects an old-world CEO mentality of treating this as a technical problem instead of a business one.'"
  • global finance magazine logo feature
    Excerpt from Global Finance -- "With new designs representing less than 10% of jewelry sales last year, accelerating the pace of product innovation will be key. 'Conventional strategies will not work,' says Serdari. 'Bogliolo must be as daring as when he was Diesel’s CEO and as proud as the Bulgari family has been. Not a small challenge, even for someone as capable as Bogliolo.'"
  • inc logo feature
    Excerpt from Inc. -- "Government policy, Sundararajan said, should favor business models that treat workers less as footloose labor and more as microbusinesses. 'We should really encourage those platforms that are inducing the creation of tiny businesses, where people are making pricing decisions, they are making inventory decisions, they are merchandising, they are building a brand through the online reputation system,' Sundararajan said."

  • Nikkei logo
    Excerpt from Nikkei Asian Review -- "In their book 'The End of Accounting,' professors Baruch Lev of New York University and Feng Gu of the State University of New York at Buffalo argue that stock prices are now about 50% determined by financial information such as profit and assets, compared with 80-90% until the 1980s."
  • poets and quants logo
    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "While many executives enter business schools to master balance sheets and refine their leadership style, they quickly learn that the MBA is really a guide to decision-making. At New York University, for example, Renee Vieira, executive director of Time Warner’s global leadership development program, considers 'Professional Responsibility' to be the most valuable course that she took. ... 'Being a successful leader is not only about having financial, strategic, marketing, and operational acumen,' she adds, 'it is truly about who you are as a person and how you lead and inspire those around you.'"
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "The authors look at historical episodes where competition increased -- an unusual wave of new companies in the 1990s, and increased Chinese competition in the 2000s. In each situation, industries where competition increased more also tended to invest more. Again, this is consistent with the story that market power is holding back the U.S. economy. Gutierrez and Philippon have another paper where they test eight different economic theories to explain falling business investment, and find that market power -- along with corporate short-termism -- is the most likely explanation."

    Professor Robert Seamans argues against a tax on robots

    September 1, 2017
    cbc logo feature
    Excerpt from CBC -- "Taxing robots is a particularly a bad idea in an era of low productivity growth, according to Robert Seamans, an associate professor of management at New York University. 'The existing empirical evidence suggests that robots boost productivity growth, so a tax on robots would limit that productivity,' he says."

  • Missoula Independent logo 192 x 144
    Excerpt from Missoula Independent -- "David Yermack, a professor of finance at New York University and bitcoin expert, says mining companies have no special reason for secrecy beyond 'standard security concerns.' Mine locations are usually dictated by access to cheap electricity (in Project Spokane's case, power is supplied by the Séliš Ksanka Ql'ispé Dam, according to Northwestern Energy documents posted online). 'Knowing the location of a bitcoin mine would not be particularly valuable information, except perhaps to potential competitors who might move to the area and try to exploit the same cheap sources of electricity,' Yermack says."

    Excerpt from IR Magazine -- "The number of listed companies in the US hit a peak of 7,428 in 1996. In 2015 that figure had fallen to 3,754, according to data from Alexander Ljungqvist, director of the Salomon Center for the Study of Financial Institutions at NYU Stern."
