    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "Advanced Professional Certificate students are to take 15 units, a quarter of the number required for an MBA, on a part-time basis, in MBA classes that have capacity. Each student will follow one of three tracks: finance, marketing, or general business. 'The finance track could quickly empower people who didn’t major in finance in college, but who now work in the industry, with a broader perspective that helps them excel in their function,' says Isser Gallogly, assistant dean of MBA admissions. 'Liberal arts majors can combine the fundamentals of marketing with the latest thinking in analytics and digital through the marketing track. Entrepreneurs without a business degree can customize the handful of business courses they want to take in the general business track. Others with an MBA may want to delve into a new area of interest.'"

    Excerpt from Forbes -- "We can only expect localization demands to increase—and business pressures to pull in the opposite direction. While the political dynamics have shifted, companies should still have respect for human rights—and the strength of the global Internet—at the forefront of decisions over where to store their data."

    Excerpt from BusinessBecause -- "Lindsey came to the high-ranking business school after a career piloting Blackhawk helicopters over Iraq and training thousands of US soldiers, many of whom may soon enter the civilian workforce.

    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "But there is also a real sense that China’s generous welcome to these institutions is part of its own need to modernise its higher education system, says NYU’s Prof Zemel. 'I think China is now struggling with the next phase of economic development. They have done a good job but they know that low-cost is running its course,' he says. The next phase is to invest in innovation and this means changing the way students are educated more widely. 'The objective of NYU in Shanghai is not to educate the 2000 [enrolled] students,' says Prof Zemel, 'but to have a long-term impact on other institutions.'"

    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 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 Financial Times -- "'Stern Speaks,' a forum organised by members of the Association of Hispanic and Black Business Students, initiated an important dialogue on NYU’s campus about the experience of black people in America. Those of us who attended had the privilege of hearing three brave classmates share their stories, all of which included personal encounters with both individual and institutional racism. When the floor opened to the audience, people mustered the courage to ask uncomfortable questions. Honest and sometimes painful answers were given in reply. A dialogue had begun."

    Excerpt from Financial Times -- "One piece of advice for prospective MBA students: quickly learn which items on your to-do list are critical and which ones can take a backseat. This is not to say the MBA lifestyle is pure stress. Amid all the casing, networking and thank-you note writing there are some really exciting opportunities in B-school land. You suddenly have a network of outstandingly bright peers with whom you can enter case competitions, design products, build companies and more."
