2013 Sani Lecture.

On April 8, 2013, Maria Bartiromo, NYU alumna and anchor of CNBC’s "Closing Bell,” addressed members of the NYU and Stern communities at the 2013 Ashok C. Sani Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence Lecture. Bartiromo shared her outlook on jobs growth, highlighting the emerging opportunities in the technology and healthcare sectors. She also spoke about the ever-expanding role of entrepreneurs and innovators who are becoming increasingly important players in fueling our 21st century economy, as well as in creating social value for society.

Emphasizing the impact that people following their passion can have on the greater good, Bartiromo encouraged the Business and Its Publics students in the audience to "always do you what you love, and always do the right thing."

This annual Ashok C. Sani Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence Lecture is named in memory of Ashok C. Sani, a distinguished graduate of NYU Stern (BS ’74), successful entrepreneur, President of C.G.S. Industries Inc., loyal supporter of NYU, and founding member of the NYU Stern Alumni Council. The Sani Distinguished Scholar program reflects his lifelong interest in promoting the ideals of ethics, truth, love, peace, non-violence, compassion, and the moral and social responsibilities of members of society with the NYU community.
