A-Lad in B School Review

By Kathleen Dillon

A-Lad in B School 

Directed by David Granik and Morgan Salvan 

Comedy, Musical 

2 hrs. 17 min. 

Tom Hanks once said that “cinema has the power to make you feel not lonely.” 

In a school year that’s been defined by all things virtual and a general feeling of isolation, Stern Follies offered students a night of respite and near normalcy on Friday. Stern’s annual comedy showcase was screened to a live audience at Paulson Auditorium, a seminar hall that’s typically home to Corporate Finance classes and LAUNCH lectures. But that night, the space was repurposed into a makeshift movie premiere.…

Stern Chats

Years ago, The Oppy and Stern Chats, Stern’s MBA student-run podcast, were one. The two organizations were considered a single club, but due to unforeseen circumstances, the pair drifted apart. Now, with new leadership and a pursuit initiated by The Oppy that walked the fine line between perseverance and stubbornness, we are excited to announce that The Oppy and Stern Chats are partners once again. As the two media platforms on campus, we plan on sharing resources, cross-promoting, and hosting events together as the new school year approaches.

Longtime podcast lover Jennifer Evensen, a full time MBA 1 student, has just been elected the new President of Stern Chats for the upcoming year.…

Stern Hobbies: Woodworking

Perhaps some of you have already noticed, but a year of being kept almost exclusively at home can do a number on your social skills (read: patience). I began to realize this the first time I saw lines of people again at the grocery store and waiting to enter an outdoor bar. The ability to be comfortable in social settings is a delicate balance that’s easy to throw off kilter- too much interaction and you could get overwhelmed (like me), too little and you’ve lost all the requisite patience to maintain and build relationships. 

As I struggled with rebuilding that patience, I found myself at times more interested in continuing my stay at home orders rather than adhering to the constantly changing Covid mandates.…

Stern Hobbies: Leaving yourself in stitches

The goal of most businesses, particularly one run by a business school student, is to make money. Langone student Cynthia Jung, however, has found another purpose.

“My selling platform is really not meant to sell,” she says. “It’s actually meant to get people to stop asking me to make them things for free constantly.”

Given the time and money Cynthia puts into knitting, it’s hard to argue. And make no mistake, Cynthia is a serious knitter, spending upwards of 30 hours on some of her projects. Her knitting-specific Instagram feed shows off the full range of her work, from beanies to bikinis, and even if profit isn’t the goal, she is still managing to get complete strangers for customers.…

Dear Oppy: May 2021

We are proud to continue our agony advice column, Dear Oppy: B-School Advice for the Everyday Sternie – “real questions, terrible advice.”

Dear Oppy,

I am about to graduate next week, and I’ve been seeing a fellow graduating MBA student on and off for the past couple years. I’m staying in NYC and he’s moving to the West Coast. I don’t know if I should continue to try and make it work or call it. Help!

Sincerely,

Hopeful

Dear Hopeful,

Our whole MBA experience has been online and Stern believes that has been just as valuable as in-person school, so just schedule a bi-weekly Zoom meeting, and you’ll be good to go.…
