As they do this over and over, new solutions emerge."

    8th Annual NYU Social Innovation Symposium

    February 23, 2018
    On February 23, 2018, the social enterprise student organizations of New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business, School of Law, and Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service will host the 8th Annual NYU Social Innovation Symposium (SIS).
  • Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "...Stern recently received an $8 million donation from an alumnus to establish the Fubon Center for Technology, Business, and Innovation, a central hub to support technological innovation in areas such as fintech, business analytics, technology, and entrepreneurship. Part of those dollars will go into hiring new professors for fintech as well as faculty and curricular development in the area, Yermack says. ...

  • Excerpt from WalletHub -- "If someone desperately needs credit, then an unsecured credit card may make sense; but the risks are that he/she will find repayment difficult, and then will face mounting late fees and penalties, which can greatly increase the debt burden. Further, he/she ought to explore other (potentially lower-cost) possibilities, such as borrowing from a credit union -- or even borrowing from friends or family. If he/she does use the credit card, focusing on repayment as soon as possible can help reduce the burden of those fees and penalties."
