    Excerpt from BusinessBecause -- "NYU’s Stern School of Business offers courses on basic data handling skills plus programming languages like Python, and an introduction to machine learning. ...

    Excerpt from The Chronicle of Higher Education -- "Three higher-education administrators and four professors are among the 'great immigrants' recognized by the Carnegie Corporation of New York this year for their notable contributions to the progress of American society. The administrators are Ronald J. Daniels, president of the Johns Hopkins University, from Canada; Peter Blair Henry, dean of the Leonard N. Stern School of Business at New York University, from Jamaica; and Farnam Jahanian, provost and chief academic officer of Carnegie Mellon University, from Iran."
     
  • venturebeat logo
    Excerpt from VentureBeat -- "Indie.vc is for the businesses that don’t want VC or weren’t wanted by VC. It’s for companies focused on profitability instead of pure growth that want to run their businesses without VCs interfering. It seems focused on disrupting the current VC model, and it isn’t shy about it – its website runs a video of a burning unicorn head in the background. I think we get the message – in some ways, the disruptors (or those who fund them) are being disrupted."
  • economist logo feature
    Excerpt from The Economist -- "As Jonathan Haidt points out in the American Interest, a quarterly review, patriots 'think their country and its culture are unique and worth preserving'. Some think their country is superior to all others, but most love it for the same reason that people love their spouse: 'because she or he is yours'. He argues that immigration tends not to provoke social discord if it is modest in scale, or if immigrants assimilate quickly."
  • cctv logo
    Excerpt from CCTV -- "'There is a deeper long-term trend we see in a number of countries but particularly in the U.S., and that’s rising inequality,' Joe Foudy, professor at the New York University Stern School of Business, said. 'The U.S. economy has grown significantly since 2008, but median wages are stagnating, while a lot of other people’s costs are going up.'"
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Prof. Acharya’s analysis calculates banks’ leverage ratios, or equity as a share of total assets, based on their current stock-market valuations. 'When a bank’s market value of equity is approaching zero, it doesn’t matter what the book value of a bank’s equity is compared to what investors believe it actually is; Lehman’s was positive when it collapsed,' Prof. Acharya said in an interview."
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "Instead of assuming that people are perfectly rational, he theorizes that they have limited attention -- what psychologist Herbert Simon called 'bounded rationality.' When interest rates or gross domestic product change, people in Gabaix’s model don't quite realize that things are different. Even more importantly, they’re short-sighted -- they don’t think as much about the probability of a recession happening 10 years from now as they do about one occurring in the next six months."
  • forbes logo feature
    Excerpt from Forbes -- "Both Reggie Award winning examples illustrate how insightful, strategic and innovative activations, that are original and very different from anything ever done before, can massively impact awareness, willingness to try, brand perceptions, and earn extensive target audience amplification: all by capturing imaginations, creating a sense of awe and evoking positive emotions. Both also highlight the benefits of thoughtful, strategic partnerships to cost effectively amplify what brands can achieve on their own."
  • entrepreneur logo feature
    Excerpt from Entrepreneur -- "In 1997, in the dawn of e-commerce, a New York University professor named Yannis Bakos wrote a well-regarded paper that predicted the internet would change pricing forever. Imagine the old days: You went to a store and had no idea what other stores charged for the same products -- which meant the store you were in could jack up the price. But once everyone could comparison shop online, Bakos reasoned, every site would likely have to offer the same price. And yet, it turns out, many shoppers don’t do the research. If they like eBay, they buy on eBay. Simple as that."
  • Mashable Logo
    Excerpt from Mashable -- "'The decision said bitcoin is not an object with tangible value. That's clearly wrong,' said David Yermack, chair of the finance department at the New York University Stern School of Business, where he teaches the course 'Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies.'"
  • marketplace radio logo feature
    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "Anindya Ghose, a business professor at the NYU Stern School, has been following Apple in China and in India, where Apple's sales growth was strong this quarter. 'I’m very optimistic and bullish about Apple’s future proliferation in India,' Ghose said."
  • quartz logo
    Excerpt from Quartz -- “'The reason Facebook and Google are able to do what they do is because they are viewed as benevolent dictatorships,' says Aswath Damodaran, a professor at New York University’s Stern Business School. That’s not necessarily a bad thing—it’s preferable to a company run like a chaotic democracy, he notes—but 'you’re going to have to accept the fact you have no control over the outcome.'”
  • thestreet logo feature
    Excerpt from TheStreet.com -- "'Outside of media circles, Roger Ailes is not all that well known,' added Sharlach, who also teaches management communication at New York University's Stern School of Business. 'It might have seemed like the sky is falling to those inside Fox News, but the actual impact on the audience, perhaps, is not all that great. Most Fox News viewers may not have any idea who Roger Ailes is or was.'"
  • new york post logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Post -- "'What they really could do with is a campaign that clearly articulates Twitter’s unique selling point' versus rivals like Facebook, says Anindya Ghose, a professor at NYU’s Stern School of Business."
     
  • new york post logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Post -- "'We are clearly in an up economy, with unemployment at about 5 percent, though wages have been stagnant,' said New York University professor of economics, Lawrence J. White."
  • the guardian logo feature
    Excerpt from The Guardian -- "Disgust may be a universal emotion, but we vary hugely in how strongly we feel it, and what our triggers are. Each of us fall somewhere on what Rozin calls the 'disgust sensitivity scale', a system he devised with another psychologist, Jonathan Haidt."
  • cbs logo feature
    Excerpt from CBS News -- "As Salomon notes, Verizon and Yahoo are vastly different types of businesses which will make integrating them a challenge. 'I think it will be difficult for (Verizon) to convince talent from Yahoo to stay,' he writes."
  • fortune logo feature
    Excerpt from Fortune -- "Verizon isn’t purchasing either the Alibaba or Yahoo Japan stakes, so it probably won’t be receiving those dividends. So if Yahoo is generating about $1.2 billion in annual free cash flow, the best assumption is that Verizon will get $142 million less, or $1.05 billion. 'That means Verizon is paying around five times free cash flow, based on the $4.8 billion price,' says Baruch Lev, distinguished professor of accounting at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'That isn’t a high number. But I’m also assuming that almost all the cash flows excluding the dividends are going to Verizon. If that’s not the case, the multiple could be excessive.'"
  • bloomberg logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "This is over. They'll give her peace with honor. Let her leave gracefully. But this is a series of botched acquisitions, severance payments to employees who were there for 14 months in excess of $100 million. A decrease in EBITDA of 50%, a decrease in revenues of 20%, and in exchange she's walking out the door with a quarter of a billion dollars. I think this kind of thing is the reason why people lose faith in corporations. So best of luck to her. But this is the end of her reign, I believe, at Yahoo."
  • bloomberg logo feat
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "Both the S&P 500 Index and the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at record highs last week. Edward Altman, a finance professor at New York University who specializes in corporate borrowing, reckons equity investors are blind to the risks being signaled in company debt."
  • economist logo feature
    Excerpt from The Economist -- "Mr Spence’s flagship contribution was a 1973 paper called 'Job Market Signalling' that looked at the labour market. Employers may struggle to tell which job candidates are best. Mr Spence showed that top workers might signal their talents to firms by collecting gongs, like college degrees."
  • washington post logo feature
    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "'It became a cash cow for them and generated lots and lots of revenue,' said C. Samuel Craig, director of the entertainment, media and technology program at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'And then it slowly began to disappear, and it was supplanted by the DVD.'"
  • bloomberg logo feat
    Excerpt from Bloomberg -- "What should monetary policymakers do if they don’t know the natural rate and therefore can’t be sure if rates are too high or too low? Avoid sudden moves, advises Kim Schoenholtz, director of the Center for Global Economy and Business at New York University’s Stern School of Business. 'When you’re driving on a cliff road on a foggy night, you go slow, and that’s what they’ve been doing,' he says."
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "...moral satisfaction alone won’t pay the rent. You’ll be more likely to land a job that offers attractive working conditions and pays well if you can develop deep expertise at a task that people value highly."
