    Excerpt from TopMBA -- "Gallogly says the program will likely be of interest to applicants, 'who really are very driven, very motivated, and very structured and who have the time right now.' He notes that students in the accelerated program who have a life change – a new job or the birth of a child, for example – can opt to slow down and complete the program in up to six years."

    Excerpt from BBC News -- "'When you look at fast casual as a category, it tends to offer the promise of fresher food that's prepared more on-site, that is sourced more sustainably,' says Hans Taparia, a professor at New York University's Stern School of Business. This model is particularly appealing to millennials, he adds, who tend to care less about price - the average 'fast-casual' meal is $7.50, compared to $5 for a meal at a chain like Wendy's - than about ethics. 'Every marketer is trying to get access to this millennial consumer - it's an 80-million person strong consumer base, the largest demographic alive today,' says Prof Taparia."

    Excerpt from TIME -- "'One hundred years ago there wasn’t a clear line between someone who ran a hotel and someone who let people stay in their homes. It was much more fluid,' says Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University Stern School of Business who studies the sharing economy. 'Then we drew clear lines between people who did something for a living and people who did it casually not for money. Airbnb and Lyft are blurring these lines.'"

    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'A big part of this is just cleaning the bank balance sheets after the sovereign debt crisis,' said Viral V. Acharya, professor of finance at Stern School of Business at New York University. But Mr. Acharya said central bank bond buying was an inefficient way to fix eurozone banks. At the rate that the European Central Bank plans to buy bonds, he said, it will take months for banks to unload their holdings."

    Excerpt from CNBC -- "Bottom line: Cuba may well become a rising star in the region and an attractive economic partner for the U.S. if things are managed well. In financial terms, Cuba will be a 'buy' when the time comes."

    Excerpt from Marketplace -- "Companies that generate most of their sales from one product can be risky, says J.P. Eggers, a professor at NYU’s Stern School of Business. But he thinks Apple’s narrow focus is a source of strength, because the company can work on innovating and improving a narrow range of products."

    Excerpt from The Economist -- "Drs Chan and Ghose looked at HIV rates in 33 states between 1999 and 2008, mostly in America's central regions (Craigslist's spread to populous cities along coastal regions was much faster, muddying the data there). The arrival of Craigslist, they found, was correlated with an average increase of 15.9% a year in the number of HIV infections compared with what would have been expected had it not been launched; the pair estimate that the listing website was associated with between 6,130 and 6,455 extra infections a year throughout the country."
  • fortune logo feature
    Excerpt from Fortune -- "If its creditor nations agreed to extend the maturities to 75 years, Greece could easily handle its current debt load. It might be enough for Syriza to withdraw its pledge to roll back previous reforms and to honor its debts in exchange for those longer maturities. 'I think they will make a u-turn,' says Economides. 'The money they need is so gigantic. They will not have a choice.'"
  • poets and quants logo
    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "'People want things to happen and happen quickly,' says Isser Gallogly, Stern’s assistant dean of MBA admissions. Today, Stern announced a new, two-year part-time MBA program. It’s essentially the same as the school’s regular part-time MBA program, but comes with a recommended schedule that maps out the required coursework, and spots for electives, over the two years."
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "'I do think we are defining a new category of work that isn’t full-time employment but is not running your own business either,' said Arun Sundararajan, a professor at New York University’s business school who has studied the rise of the so-called on-demand economy, and who is mainly optimistic about its prospects. ... 'We may end up with a future in which a fraction of the work force would do a portfolio of things to generate an income — you could be an Uber driver, an Instacart shopper, an Airbnb host and a Taskrabbit,' Dr. Sundararajan said."
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "In their 2014 paper, Talhelm and his co-authors hypothesize 'that liberals think more analytically because liberal culture is more individualistic, with looser social bonds, more emphasis on self-expression, and a priority on individual identities over group identities.' Conservatives, in this analysis, are more dedicated to their communities and to the idea of community than liberals."
  • voxeu logo feature
    Excerpt from Vox -- "Using barcode level price data from 2,400 US zip codes on a variety of products sold in grocery and drug stores, we estimate that when local house prices double, product prices will increase by 15 to 20 percent. That is, households living in locations with rapidly increasing real estate prices will also face rapidly increasing costs of goods purchased in local stores."
  • cnn logo feature
    Excerpt from CNN -- "First of all, it's unrealistic to write off the [Greek] debt because if Greece receives an extra dollar, this dollar will have to be paid by the taxpayers of the other countries and I don't see any European leader who's going to impose on his taxpayers a gift that he is going to give to Greece. I also don't think that this is the main problem of Greece. Although the present government was elected saying that, the real problem of Greece is being able to deal with the conditions that have been imposed through austerity and not so much on the issue of debt... The most important thing is for Greece to grow and I'm afraid that the present government has, in general, an anti-business attitude which will not attract growth and will not reduce unemployment."

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "Researchers said they worked with Ashley Madison, a dating website for people seeking extramarital affairs, to analyze data on more than 8 million men who had registered with the site. The study was one of six published together in the journal 'Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences' in 2014 that examined when people make big life changes. It found 950,000 men were ages 29, 39, 49 or 59, or '9-enders,' and their numbers on the dating site were 18% higher than what would be expected by chance, according to the researchers from New York University’s Stern School of Business and the Anderson School of Management at the University of California, Los Angeles."
  • bloomberg view logo
    Excerpt from Bloomberg View -- "'Analytic cognition function appears to decline dramatically over the life-cycle, starting at age 20,' economists Sumit Agarwal, John C. Driscoll, Xavier Gabaix, and David Laibson wrote in a 2009 paper on financial decision-making. On the other hand, they found, experience is valuable. Studying customer behavior in across several different credit markets, they found people making the best decisions at about age 53. After that, things start to go downhill."
  • fox business logo feature
    Excerpt from Fox Business -- "Sling TV, it's an opportunity to fill a void, so they're the first in, but it's low-hanging fruit. I mean, we've been waiting for this void to be filled forever. So somebody was going to do it. I think the thing that I'm missing here is they're still using an old concept from cable. They're still using a bundling concept... I think investors... should be looking for where the real innovation comes from when another provider, perhaps also Sling TV, starts to unbundle these things."

    Prof. Anindya Ghose on e-tailers' pricing strategies

    January 25, 2015
    business standard logo feature
    Excerpt from Business Standard -- "'Such a marketing gimmick is a kind of price obfuscation strategy. It is a baiting tactic to lure price-sensitive customers to their store in the hope of converting them. But such practices are counterproductive in the long run for retailers. They will never be able to establish a loyal customer base using such opaque pricing tactics,' said Anindya Ghose, professor of IT and marketing at New York University's Leonard Stern School of Business."
  • financial times logo feature
    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "Eli Daquioag, an MBA student at New York University’s Stern School of Business, advises keeping in mind the accessibility of people, companies and industries when you decide which school to apply to. For example, studying in New York has enabled him to visit big media companies such as NBCUniversal and Viacom, which have their headquarters in the city. By building these relationships in his first semester, he was able to secure an internship with cable channel USA Network."

    Excerpt from CBC Radio -- "I don't think most people actually think how their work is being done. People just look at the output...whether it was an algorithm that did that, whether it was a human... I don't think that most people care."

    Excerpt from OZY -- "We bet you haven’t asked yourself what Chile and Barbados did to rebound. That’s what Henry did, and he found that some small countries that committed to fiscal discipline were able to recover better than even big ones, who should have had better resources and bigger brain trusts."

    Excerpt from Kathimerini -- "The Europeans have worked for years to minimize the economic impact of a Grexit on them. Currently European politicians agree that the impact of a Grexit in Europe would be negligible. Only Greece would destroyed by a Grexit, not Europe."
  • inc logo feature
    Excerpt from Inc. -- "Anindya Ghose, an IT and marketing professor New York University's Stern School of Business, has spent much of the past few years studying mobile marketing, interactive retail beacons, and consumer privacy around the world. He says in Asia, where I reached him over telephone, beacons are increasingly popular in retail environments, and customers universally seem willing to give up a little bit of their data in exchange for the right rewards--say coupons or discounts. The primary hurdle to retailers using in-store mobile marketing is consumer awareness. But, Ghose says, 'given that a lot of consumers have the Shazam app, it is a brilliant play.'"
  • new york times logo feature
    Excerpt from The New York Times -- "But time is running out before the effects of climate change become irreversible, the panelists said. 'We have to go very quickly,' said Michael Spence, professor of economics at the New York University Stern School of Business. 'We have a window of a very small number of years after which we cannot win the battle to mitigate fast enough to meet the safety goals.'"
