    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."

    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 LinkedIn -- "If you build it, they will come. Or so Professors David Backus and Glenn Okun learned when they organized Data Bootcamp, a non-credit elective course designed for students who want to learn Python, a popular programming language, in order to analyze economic, financial and business data most effectively. The course, offered every other Friday during the fall semester, developed when a group of MBA students approached the professors, identifying a need to understand code for business applications."

    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."

    Excerpt from CityLab -- "Because of the substandard conditions connected to such settlements, most planners would indeed like to alter that pattern, by laying out, for example, a grid of streets and sidewalks and infrastructure in advance of growth—a recommendation of Shlomo 'Solly' Angel in his work on the Atlas of Urban Expansion, a partnership of the NYU Stern Urbanization Project, UN-HABITAT, and the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy. The model is the way that future growth was planned for Manhattan, or Barcelona."
