Stern Somebody Presents: Jeanna Smialek

Running between the Classroom and the Newsroom

Jeanna Smialek is a part-time Stern student and a full-time Federal Reserve and Economics Reporter for the New York Times. In between balancing school, articles and her upcoming book, she made time to sit down with The Oppy for an interview.

Meade is not the average MBA student. During the week, Meade is a VP at JP Morgan Chase & Company, where he leads a team that covers multiple trading desks across various industries. On the weekends, he is getting his Executive MBA here at Stern.…
