Columbia Finds Surprises That Hurts Advertisers, and More – New York City News

Columbia Finds Surprises That Hurts Advertisers, and More – New York City News

What’s going on in New York business schools this week?

Study by Columbia Business School Finds Search Tools Like Broad Match Can Hurt Advertisers More Than It HelpsColumbia Business School Blog

New research co-authored by Columbia Business School associate professor of business Kinshuk Jerath calls into question the efficacy of search tools like broad match, which automate the process of “figuring out all the possible keywords that consumers might search for.”

According to the article, paid search ad spending will reach nearly $40 billion in the U.S. alone by 2019. Jerath writes, “Tools like broad match have led to too many advertisers competing over the same keywords, because now bidding on keywords is so easy. The result is that the search engines are actually the only real winners.”

In a paper entitled Keyword Management Costs and “Broad Match” in Sponsored Search Advertising, Jerath and co-authors Wilfred Amaldoss from Duke Fuqua and Amin Sayedi of UW Foster found that “broad match is only effective to a point, a threshold driven largely by the accuracy of broad match that is controlled by the search engine, not the advertiser.”

“Anything that makes advertising cheaper creates more competition—and can ultimately hurt your return on investment. “

Deloitte CEO Cathy Engelbert to Lehigh Graduates: ‘Do What Hasn’t Been Done’Lehigh College Business and Economics Blog

Deloitte CEO Cathy Engelbert, Lehigh College Business and Economics ’86 graduate, used her recent commencement address to share three life lessons that stressed to graduates of Lehigh’s 150th Class the importance of “always remembering what matters to them most.”

Engelbert advised students to “do what hasn’t been done” and “find creative, impactful ways of using new technologies for good.” She said, “I encourage you to stay optimistic and play an active, key role in carving the path leveraging your uniquely human skills—like creativity, empathy, communication, and complex problem-solving.”

Her second piece of advice was to “schedule your personal updates,” just as one might update “various devices to ensure they are operating at peak performance.”

Engelbert’s third and “most important” lesson was to “stay anchored on what matters to you most.”

“I’m sure many of you have a purpose you’re passionate about. That doesn’t end today with graduation. You can carry that through whatever you’re going to do next … from graduate school to entering the workforce. There’s a push to come together as social issues grow in depth, severity and priority. I challenge you to take a bold stance and make a difference in your day-to-day work.”

Professor Scott Galloway discusses how Walmart is positioning itself to compete with AmazonNYU Stern News

NYU Stern School of Business professor of marketing Scott Galloway was recently interviewed as part of a CNNMoney piece on Walmart’s plan to take on Amazon as the country’s preeminent universal retailer, particularly when it comes to online grocery delivery. Galloway writes:

“Walmart is the only firm that has the management, capital and the scale to compete with Amazon. They’ve probably done as good a job of getting off their heels and on their toes as any retailer in the world.”

The online healthcare MBA at George Washington is 55.5 credit hours, divided among core courses (31.5) and healthcare focused electives (24), offered through the university’s School of Medicine and Health. Students may also petition to have 12 of their elective credits made up of GWU graduate-level healthcare courses outside of the medical school.

Georgetown McDonough Increases Scholarships For Veterans Graduate Programs

Georgetown McDonough Increases Scholarships For Veterans Graduate Programs

Starting in fall 2018, Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business will increase its funding for veterans enrolled in graduate programs as part of the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program. The increase will provide students with $15,000 per year from Georgetown McDonough (up from $10,000 in previous years), resulting in a total of $30,000 annually thanks to a matching gift from the Department of Veterans.

Discussing the Georgetown scholarships and how it will help veterans at the university, Dean Paul Almeida talked about the burden it eases for those in their community. “By virtue of being in Washington DC, we share a home with many members of the military community seeking to transfer their valuable training and experiences into the business world,” he said. “We are proud to increase our Yellow Ribbon funding for these servicemen and women. Easing their financial access to our programs is one way we can thank them for their service.”

In addition to the increase in funding, which can be used to pay for tuition and fees, Georgetown McDonough also removed the cap on enrollment. Now, an unlimited number of eligible students can benefit from the funding when they attend one of Georgetown McDonough’s eligible graduate programs. Those programs include the following:

  • Full-time and Evening MBA
  • Executive MBA
  • Global Executive MBA
  • Executive Masters in Leadership
  • A. in International Business and Policy
  • S. in Finance

To qualify for the Yellow Ribbon program, veterans must be 100 percent eligible for post-9/11 benefits. They must also not be on active duty or have a spouse on active duty from whom they are receiving transferred benefits. Also, they must be enrolled in a graduate degree program and accumulate more tuition and fees over an academic year than indicated by the post-9/11 private tuition maximum.

To learn more about the Yellow Ribbon program at Georgetown McDonough and how the school is helping veterans, visit the website. You can also read the original press release about the increase in funding here.
