From Stern with Love

School raises over $15,000 at Bond-themed Charity Ball

What do you get when you combine some 700 Stern community members, 80-plus donated auction items and an uber-classy black-tie affair at the Highline Ballroom?

Well, this Nov. 17 it all added up to over $15,000 in charity donations for charity:water and Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

The James Bond-themed NYU Stern Charity Ball was a major success from both the perspective of fundraising for charity and having a fun night out.

The event was made all the more impressive by the spread of donated items from students, alumni, professors, and committed community members.…

Learning From Game of Thrones

What House Lannister and House Stark can teach us about branding

I’m constantly amazed by how much drama can teach us about the life. And the Game of Thrones television series is a case in point.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that the HBO series, based on the epic fantasy series “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R.R. Martin, is wildly popular right now. It works well not only because it draws upon the excellent (and extensive) source material but also, but also because, as Andy Greenwald of Grantland observes, the show turns a “straightforward fantasy epic of succession and betrayal” into a “multi-layered drama about institutional failure.”…

Upon arrival to the Art’otel, our gorgeous, Danube River facing hotel in Budapest, we soon learned that one of the best restaurants in the city was half a block away.  Indulging in these traditional and local fish stews was an amazing way to kick off our week in Budapest and set the tone for the rest of our trip.

The night before classes started we took a bus tour of the city where we quickly learned that Budapest is actually two cities, Buda and Pest, split by the Danube River.  We ended our tour on the Buda side at the spectacular Buda Castle. …

DBi Istanbul began with cocktails at Bogacizi University and ended on a boat cruise on the Bosphorus. In the ten days in between our group of fifteen Stern MBAs tapped into the rhythm of a city that is at once historic and modern, from the magnificence of the Blue Mosque to late nights in the clubs of the Bosphorus.

Though always the historical gateway between Europe and Asia, Turkey now plays a growing role in the international economy and a critical role in the tumultuous politics of North Africa and the Middle East. Turkey’s reemergence on the global stage set the backdrop for engaging coursework, coursework that focused on the unique aspects of the domestic market, the performance of the national economy, and the Turkish impact on regional and international markets.…

The Rules of Fashion

I can’t believe that another summer has gone by and that Labor Day will have sadly passed by the time this article goes to press.  I generally over pack, but the last long weekend of the summer tends to bring out the crazy in me.  I try jamming as many outfits into my weekend bag, hoping to get the opportunity to wear some of my favorite seasonal items…like white pants and jeans.  I’ll even pack all of my bathing suits in case I need the extra options.
