NYU Stern Hosts Economic Outlook Forum

NYU Stern Hosts Economic Outlook Forum

New York University’s Stern School of Business hosted the invitation-only Economic Outlook Forum last week, which featured an array of established financial experts from prominent business institutions.

The forum was titled, “The Economic and Market Outlook.” NYU Stern Director of the Center for Global Economy and Business Kim Schoenholtz moderated the discussion, which featured three panelists, including: Citigroup’s Willem Buiter, Deutsche Bank’s Peter Hooper, and Berenberg’s Mickey Levy.

Buiter is the Global Chief Economist at Citigroup, where he has worked since 2010. Formerly in London and now based in New York City, Buiter also teaches at the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University.

Hooper is the Managing Director and Chief Economist for Deutsche Bank Securities, where he has worked since 1999. Before that, Hooper spent 26 years with the Federal Reserve Board in Washington DC.

Levy has spent over 30 years researching economic and public policy. Prior to Berenberg, Levy worked at Bank of America. Similar to Hooper, Levy has ties with Federal Reserve Banks.

Schoenholtz, who has worked at NYU Stern since 2009 after a stint with Citigroup, proved to be the perfect moderator. He’s an expert on money, banking, and macroeconomics with an immense global experience, having worked in New York City, London, and Tokyo. His influence continues as he sits on the Financial Research Committee of the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Financial Research, as well as U.S. Monetary Policy Forum.

Different universities have hosted their own Economic Outlook Forums, including the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and Towson University.

Which 1-Year MBA Program in New York Is Right for You?

Which 1-Year MBA Program in New York Is Right for You?

New Yorkers are always in a hurry. For those looking for that same speed with their MBA, they’re in luck. The city—home to eight million people—has five schools where candidates can graduate with an MBA or similar degree within a year.

What better place to build your business knowledge than New York City? Business people from around the world come to the city—but not you. You’d be living in it. Plus, major international companies are headquartered there. JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, and IBM, for example.

Check out some of the best one-year MBA programs in the city that never sleeps.

Binghamton University School of Management

Binghamton University’s School of Management sits in Midtown New York City. Students will have easy access to Bryant Park, Penn Station, Grand Central Station, Port Authority, all the shopping they need—and the nearby beauty of Chelsea.

The school came to the area in 1970. Its Professional MBA is what sets Binghamton apart. It takes no more than a year, and students meet only on Saturdays. The curriculum does demand a full Saturday, but at least it wraps up in a year. And since it’s on the weekend, full-time working professionals are good to go, too. The school reports students can save $20,000-$50,000 compared to other MBA programs in New York City.

Zicklin School of Business – Baruch College

Baruch College formally created its Zicklin School of Business in 1998 after an endowment from an alumnus Lawrence Zicklin. But the MBA program has been offered since 1920.

Its one-year MBA program is fairly new. The first cohort enrolled this past summer. The program begins in June and takes 12 months. Applicants are expected to have two to five years experience. Given the program’s speed, the class schedule will be intense and build on already acquired knowledge. Students have the option to study abroad during the winter intersession.

Lubin School of Business – Pace University

The Lubin School of Business at Pace University has been around for more than 100 years. Since 1906, the school has been cranking out business graduates ready to take New York City by storm. It offers a unique one-year fast-track MBA—only in financial management.

This specialty in finance gives business students an edge. Graduates will walk away from Lubin knowing how to provide financial consultation to corporations. Lubin is sure to plug its students into any necessary resources for them to succeed. For example, MBA candidates can access the Bloomberg workstation and other financial databases. Classes are based in New York City and Westchester, a short train ride away.

Stern School of Business – New York University

New York University is one of New York City’s most well-known university, so the Stern School of Business is too, naturally. In the middle of Greenwich Village, students can occupy themselves with endless activities when they’re not in class.

However, the Stern School of Business doesn’t quite offer one-year MBAs. Its specialized one-year programs are for its MS in accounting, MS in business analytics, and an MS in global finance. These programs add an oomph to any business professional looking to build their expertise. Most of the programs include a global format, preparing graduates for a global field.

Lehigh University College of Business and Economics

The College of Business and Economics at Lehigh University is actually a bit out of the way for those stationed in New York City. Located in Pennsylvania, the school is just 90 miles outside of New York City.

While that might feel like a trek, the commute can be worth it to some. The one-year MBA program includes a coaching team including a faculty member, Lehigh alumnus, and a career services staff member. So if you’re a fan of networking and relationship building, this campus might be the one for you. Lehigh’s first one-year program took place this year and will end in December 2017.

The New Faculty Joining NYU Stern This Fall

The New Faculty Joining NYU Stern This Fall

Seven new faculty members are joining New York University’s Stern School of Business this coming school year, according to a new press release from the school.

The 2017-18 academic school year will have two new tenure-track professors, two clinical professors, and three visiting professors. The tenure track professors include Joshua Loftus, Assistant Professor of Information, Operations, and Management Sciences, and Walker Hanlon, Assistant Professor of Economics. Clinical Associate Professor of Finance Kathleen DeRose and Clinical Professor of Marketing Paul Hardart join alongside the tenure track professors.

As for visiting professors, they are:

  • Bryan Hong – Visiting Assistant Professor of Management
  • Pricila Maziero – Visiting Assistant Professor of Economics
  • Ning Su – Visiting Associate Professor of Information, Operations and Management Sciences

DeRose, a financial technology expert, isn’t exactly new to the school, however, having been an adjunct since last year. Hong is interested in a business’ social responsibility. He’s currently studying how firms can deal with future disruptions. Hanlon will add an interesting variety to the school’s economics lessons. He studies the economy from a historical perspective. He’s currently looking at pollution, too, and its impacts on employment. Hanlon previously taught at Princeton University.

The business school already features a robust roster of faculty. These seven will only add to the school’s respected professors like Jennifer Carpenter and Nouriel Roubini.

Part-Time MBA Programs: New York City vs. Boston

Part-Time MBA Programs: New York City vs. Boston

Part-time MBAs offer an abundance of perks: more flexibility, online courses, and even weekend and evening classes. They open the door for professionals who want an MBA but might also have children or a full-time job or other responsibilities that take priority.

If looking at the East Coast, two cities may come to mind: New York City and Boston. Both are drastically different metros just by the size alone. New York City is home to more than eight million people. Boston is nearly 675,000. That’s a big difference.

But both places have plenty to offer. It just comes down to what a person is looking for.

Here is the quick version for both cities:

  • New York City: The city’s part-time programs cater to candidates interested in pragmatic skills like math or finance. They’re also very flexible. Being that it’s New York City, students tend to be more diverse, coming from different countries and backgrounds.
  • Boston: Schools definitely offer advantages for candidates who already hold a professional certification like a CPA or CFA. Classes are dramatically smaller than those in New York. Surprisingly, some tuition is more costly than in New York City, but living in Boston is more affordable. Programs also seem to focus on international skills.

New York City

New York City is one of the greatest cities in the world. This is true when it comes to culture, business, networking, and all of the above. People from all around the world frequent this city. The city has its quirks, of course. The public transit system is in a state of emergency. During the summer, it’s not uncommon to find putrid smells sneaking into your nostrils. And there are, of course, the pests and rodents.

But all of this is worth it to the many transplants who move to New York City. After all, the city does hold the title of the world’s second largest metropolitan economy, following Tokyo—a city with a significantly larger population. More than three million of the city’s residents are foreign-born, which is a perk for someone who wants to break into the international sector. New York City really is a magnificent place if you’re looking for vibrancy and a taste of the world beyond the U.S. may look like. It’s a global city.

These schools offer part-time MBAs around New York City:

  • Lubin School of Business – Pace University
  • Rutgers Business School, Newark and New Brunswick (New Jersey)
  • Stern School of Business – New York University
  • Tobin College of Business – St. John’s University
  • Zicklin School of Business – Baruch College

Every school offers its unique set of courses and perks. St. John’s University’s Tobin College of Business has classes during the evenings and weekends. Its curriculum is straightforward: Take 54 credits with a maximum of 36 going toward your concentration.

For NYU Stern, there’s a bit more flexibility. Students can take up to six years completing their MBA if they need. If just the weekends are ideal, candidates are limited to two concentrations: finance and management. The campus is diverse with 34 percent of students female and 24 percent people of color.

The Lubin School of Business offers classes at all times of the day and week. The school offers concentrations in international business and international finance, a benefit to any student wanting to take their work global. It requires that three credits outside a student’s concentration be in international business, so the program definitely leans toward teaching competitive skills for an international market.

The Rutgers Business School is a little far out with its campuses in New Jersey. However, that’s a short ride from New York City (and the cost of living is cheaper in New Jersey, too). The school’s part-time program doesn’t stray too far from its full-time one. It includes an interactive course requirement and makes sure that its students walk away with a working knowledge of statistics and calculus. Math will come in handy when handling business.

The Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College allows students interested to pursue their JD/MBA in partnership with Brooklyn Law School or New York Law School. Accountancy majors can also obtain a CPA with their MBA.

Boston

Boston is like a little piece of Europe in New England. Perhaps that’s why Boston sits at the heart of the region. Its cobblestone sidewalks and streets are an ever-present reminder of the region’s history. While it is certainly not as bustling as New York City, it doesn’t mean it’s quiet. Boston is always booming with tourists on the hunt for the perfect lobster roll or college students traversing their way to class. It’s also culturally diverse with most of its population non-white.

The city doesn’t see the musty summers that New York does, but it does see some severe winters. If snow’s your thing, that’s a perk. If it’s not, well, tough luck. The city does, however, rank among the highest concentrations of employment, so a graduate is sure to find a job in the area. Unlike New York, Boston has already invested in its public transit infrastructure to ensure that residents can get around easily.

Then again, that means parking and driving in the city sucks. You can’t have it all.

These schools offer part-time MBAs around Boston:

  • Carroll School of Management – Boston College
  • D’Amore-McKim School of Business – Northeastern University
  • Sawyer Business School – Suffolk University

At Northeastern University, flexibility is a strong suit. The program starts in September and January of each year, but students can take as long as they need to complete the program. The D’Amore-McKim School of Business gives students the option to take part in an international field study, which last one to two weeks.

The Carroll School of Management at Boston College gives online and hybrid courses. The school is big on experiential learning, so it does a great job of exposing students to real-world professionals. If a student already holds a CFA or CPA, they are eligible for advanced standing. Like many other Boston schools, the Carroll School is big on expanding students’ experiences beyond Boston. They take TechTreks to nearby New York City or even Seattle. But that doesn’t exempt students from the mandatory 20 hours of community service.

The Sawyer Business School offers a part-time MBA that can be completed in 10 months. That’s shorter than some full-time MBA programs. There’s a summer option, too, for anyone who’s in a rush to graduate. From the beginning, candidates must plan for their career with their first semester including a one-credit business simulation course. The program also has a three-credit global requirement. Students have gone on to China and Brazil in the past for a week-long global travel seminar.
