    Excerpt from The Washington Post -- "In one experiment, half of the participants were shown the current nutrition label for mini chocolate chip cookies, and the other half saw the proposed label. Then they were told they would be offered some, and asked how many they expected to eat. Those who had seen the new label, which used six cookies as a serving size, said they expected to eat more than those who saw the current one, which used three cookies as a serving size."

    Excerpt from War on the Rocks -- "As leaders in the military, it is our responsibility to ensure a more lethal fighting force in the future. Last week, two women graduated from the Army’s grueling Ranger School for the first time. Before this milestone event, institutional bias in the U.S. Army reinforced an assumption that women would simply never be capable of completing its most challenging small unit leadership course. Captain Griest and Lieutenant Haver’s graduation not only repudiates this assumption, it also demonstrates that there is still much talent within the ranks that remains to be harnessed."

    Excerpt from Task & Purpose -- "'While we left the military, our passion for working in and with teams stayed with us,' said Shaw. 'We became military officers in the first place to help teams reach their potential and accomplish their missions. CORE was a natural extension of this line of work.'"

    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "'We are excited to welcome an exceptional incoming class to NYU Stern,' [Gallogly] tells Poets&Quants. 'The full-time MBA Class of 2017 includes students from more than 60 different countries and with experience that ranges from entrepreneurs to doctors, bankers to teachers, and military veterans to film producers. As diverse as they are individually, what they all share in common is what we call IQ + EQ; they possess both intellectual and interpersonal strengths. We screen for this winning combination of qualities during the admissions process. We know these students will turn ideas into action, inspire others to their cause, and make their mark on the Stern community.'"

    Excerpt from Techday News -- "...having this venture has not only transformed my outlook on practically everything, but has helped me grow as a student and businesswoman in ways I could never have imagined. Having to solve problems leads you to discover characteristics that you didn't even know you possessed."

    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "...Apollo says she’s been given the opportunity to flex her own creative muscle and problem solving for Saks. 'I’m in dress collections so the buyer was interested in seeing which trends were in for this year’s prom season. Using "#prom," I was able to incorporate social media to investigate popular trends, then I created a board to visually show the trends.'"
  • cnbc logo feature
    Excerpt from CNBC -- "The big jumps have been in the global classes, faculty-led classes that are taking our students to Milan, to China, to other places so that students can get a real hands-on experience in the country, see the culture, see the historical significance and perspectives of those countries and bring those back into companies that are increasingly multi-national in scope."
  • poets and quants logo
    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "Gallogly, assistant dean of MBA admissions at the New York University’s Stern School of Business, estimates he’s read more than 50,000 application essays during his dozen years at the school. While he and his colleagues assess specific attributes and deficiencies related to GMAT scores, undergraduate GPAs, work experience, communication skills, and fit with Stern, ultimately their evaluation falls under a framework they call 'the three Cs': how well applicants would do in the classroom; how successful they would be in their careers; and what kind of character they have."

    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "NYU Stern allows some first-years to begin M.B.A. coursework in July, as a way for students to lighten their course loads for the academic year. While the majority of the school’s Summer Start students are selected by program administrators for their leadership potential or because they might benefit from an early start, NYU holds a few spots for additional students who wish to opt in, said Isser Gallogly, assistant dean of M.B.A. admissions. He said the school has seen more requests for those spots, which carry an additional fee of around $2,500, in recent years. The 60 to 65 summer students 'get to know each other quite well,' and form close ties, Mr. Gallogly said. Come fall, administrators spread them among the six cohort blocks of the M.B.A. class, where they act as 'connectors,' he said."

  • business insider logo feature
    Excerpt from Business Insider -- "'There is no need to build out your whole two years this summer, but you should consider classes or professors that your school is known for and make sure you aren't missing out on anything in early days that would hurt your chances of taking their classes,' Johnson says."
  • MBA Today logo
    Excerpt from MBA Today -- "The NYU Stern's Center of Business and Human Rights is led by co-directors, Research Scholar Sarah Labowitz and Professor Michael Posner, former Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor. The representation of these figures from this field within a business school is rare and exceptional. Yet, this is just the beginning. Though only two years old, the CBHR has already helped grow substantive initiatives internationally, and with it sought to establish ongoing links with NYU Stern. This has been seen in the Center's work throughout the developing region, with works in Bangladesh."
  • mba schooled logo
    Excerpt from MBA Schooled -- "Things will vary especially early on, so you’ll need to get used to throttling. Embrace each day, each week for what it’s going to bring. No two days are the same, especially that first semester, so you really need to take each day, each week, each month for what it is."
  • clear admit logo feature
    Excerpt from Clear Admit -- "'Our community leaned into hard topics this year. There were awkward moments and sometimes misinformed things were said. But, as a community, we let it get messy. Doing so allowed us to see what needed to be cleaned up.' ... 'When these MBAs enter the workforce, yes, they’ll be able to stand up for injustices, but they will also know how to broach the topics that everyone else is too afraid to touch,' Hurnyak points out."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "For those of us who attended the talk, this was a rare opportunity to hear from a leader outside the realm of corporate America. The principles of leadership espoused by General McNeil were unique from those typically learned in business schools. At Stern, our course covered the requisite topics of teamwork, power and politics, and conflict management, but it ended with McNeil encouraging us to spark revolutions and change lives."

    Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "'Banks have come back,' says Roxanne Hori, associate dean for corporate relations and career services at NYU Stern. 'The M&A marketplace is healthy and the start-up community is healthy, so there are lots of IPOs.' "
  • mbamission logo
    Excerpt from mbaMission -- "'First and foremost, I think people regard us as one of the elite business schools with our reputation as an exceptional academic institution. I think the second point, and it’s in our name, of course, is New York—and not just that we’re in New York, a capital of world business, but how we leverage the city as an extension of our classroom. I think the fact that people gain incredible access to experts in industry coming into our classrooms, in addition to real-world learning taking place outside of the classroom, in the business community directly—these benefits are huge advantages.And the third is our diversity of offerings. No matter what industry or function, we occupy that space, and just like the diversity of the city itself, the way we approach business and management is very diverse.'"
  • clear admit logo feature
    Excerpt from Clear Admit -- "'One common theme we continue to hear with growing intensity from our prospective students, particularly millennials, is the importance of time—how can I learn what I need to know as quickly as possible to excel in my current position or to be competitive for new functions?' says NYU Stern Assistant Dean of MBA Admissions Isser Gallogly. 'The [Advanced Professional Certificate] APCs provide students with specific area knowledge fast—and they are offered on weeknights and Saturdays, making them accessible to working professionals,' he adds."
  • poets and quants logo
    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "...in January, 2014, after my first semester at NYU Stern, I was promoted from Associate Director to Director, U.S. Marketing Region, for Revlon, which significantly increased my account responsibilities. While I had already been on a high performance track, it was furthering my education at Stern, with a double specialization in Marketing and Leadership, which provided even more evidence to management that I would continue to go the extra mile to achieve any goal and that I was hungry to learn and do more."

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "The startup plans to use the money to work on its product and hire staff in sales and marketing, but also to bring optometrists in-house to join its 13 staff today. In-house professionals will allow Smart Vision Labs to test new use cases for the startup’s products by using their expertise with actual patients, Albanese hopes. The company aims to double its doctor customers to 400 by the end of the year."

You want to choose the place where you will thrive.
