  • 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."
  • 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."

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."
  • 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.'"

  • Excerpt from Clear Admit -- "'There is no other textbook on business and human rights out there, which we viewed as a major gap in the literature,' says Baumann-Pauly.

She was a managing director at a small market research firm, so her boss also happened to be the president of the company.

  • Excerpt from Medium -- "'Having participated in theatre productions for most of my life, I began to notice how prohibitively expensive production costs can be,' founder Jackie Kroeger explained, 'Theatres often build all their production materials from scratch, and then once the show is complete, these expensive costumes, sets, and props often go in the trash or are stored somewhere, unused.'"

She also encourages us to think big in terms of the jobs we take after Stern, and provides concrete tools to help us achieve that."
  • Excerpt from Inc. -- "Based on our own research last summer during the NYU Launchpad Program, when we talked to hundreds of potential users--we even put up a lemonade stand in Washington Square Park--60% of those who didn't have tattoos wanted to get one but didn't.
