  • venturebeat logo
    Excerpt from VentureBeat -- "Indie.vc is for the businesses that don’t want VC or weren’t wanted by VC. It’s for companies focused on profitability instead of pure growth that want to run their businesses without VCs interfering. It seems focused on disrupting the current VC model, and it isn’t shy about it – its website runs a video of a burning unicorn head in the background. I think we get the message – in some ways, the disruptors (or those who fund them) are being disrupted."

Many include opportunities for international students to also improve their English language skills and learn about U.S. culture."

  • topMBA logo
    Excerpt from TopMBA -- "Over the past few years, we have seen a growing diversity of companies coming to campus to recruit. One particular industry that is increasing MBA hiring of NYU Stern talent is technology. We are seeing more and more mature technology companies, such as Amazon and Google, participate in on-campus recruitment. Because we are in New York, we can also partner readily with growing tech firms such as e-commerce firm, Jet.com, and music streaming service, Spotify, to organize networking events and company visits. In addition, we are seeing increased interest from entertainment and media firms as well as luxury and retail companies, such as NBCUniversal, Time Warner, and Michael Kors. Similarly, we partner with companies in these sectors to organize networking events and information sessions to accelerate the connection between our students and these opportunities."

But we also have more and more students looking to do unique kinds of things outside of more traditional MBA recruiting. Because we have alumni in all kinds of interesting places, we are able to connect them."

    Excerpt from Lohud.com -- "Thomas, who took office in January, received an executive MBA in finance and leadership after attending the school for two years every other weekend.

  • huffington post logo feature
    Excerpt from The Huffington Post -- "Governor Andrew Cuomo’s $22 billion transportation capital plan, particularly the 'Pave NY' program, will yield major dividends for the Empire State. Should New York provide cities with the option to assess an infrastructure charge, we can leverage more public dollars to do more for the public good. As mayor of one of the densest cities in New York and in the nation, I see immense potential in this idea. It will raise the resources necessary to underwrite major long term construction projects, creating sustainable jobs and economic growth for years to come. Building and maintaining this vast network requires a coalition of engineers, equipment companies, contractors, and educators to trains and ready the workforce to do the work. Additionally, it will raise awareness of the need to reduce carbon emissions, making our air better to breathe."
  • poets and quants logo
    Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- "In my professional career I am most proud of the entrepreneurial endeavors I’ve taken on before and during my time at Stern. I have a production company, Little Red Ro Productions, through which I’ve produced several short films. While at school, I co-created the Little Bright Notebook, a project design tool for creative types and entrepreneurs, along with my classmate Lenore Champagne Beirne. Stern does a great job of creating a diverse and interesting class of students each year. Our collaboration is a perfect example of two people with wildly different backgrounds and areas of expertise coming together to build something that helps the broader creative community. I’m not sure we would have crossed paths were it not for Stern."
  • wall street journal logo feature
    Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "By digging through corporate by-laws, Mr. Kim was able to hand collect regularly scheduled meeting times for a sample of over 100 companies. Examining those dates, he found that material news is far more likely to get released on the day of a board meeting and the day immediately following than other days. He then looked at the performance of stock purchases made by outside directors immediately before board meetings. The finding: They outperformed."
  • CFO magazine
    Excerpt from CFO -- "In early April, at a roundtable on materiality at the NYU Stern School of Business, the proposal drew fire from the accounting, legal, and investment professions, as well as a more moderate critique from the corporate side. Stanley Siegel, an emeritus professor at NYU Law School, blasted the notion of introducing legal definitions into the U.S. accounting system. 'Materiality has meanings in several different contexts … it doesn’t follow that what’s material for a criminal case is material for accounting,' he contended. 'We’re in a worrisome area when we attempt to apply one standard in another setting.'"
  • ethisphere logo
    Excerpt from Ethisphere -- "'Having an external view of CSR helps, tremendously when designing strategies to address human rights,' said Ron Popper, head of Corporate Responsibility at the electrical engineering giant ABB, during a roundtable event at NYU Stern’s Center for Business and Human Rights. 'You need to consider expectations such as what do all the different stakeholders expect— the government expects companies to pay their taxes while investors want to see a robust risk management framework and civil society wants to make sure the company is not doing any harm.'"
