Dear Sternies,

First, we want to acknowledge the incredible run our current editor-in-chief, Deirdre Keane, has had heading the resurrection and successful resurgence of The Oppy over the last two years. We don’t know many people who can save lives at their day job, attend night classes, run a bunch of marathons, and restart a newspaper from scratch all at the same time, especially during a pandemic. Do you? Thanks Deirdre for all you’ve done for The Oppy. We didn’t quite know how to continue without you, so we realized we needed two editors-in-chief to run this thing after you’re gone.…

MBA Advice from a Langone Student

After spending a whopping four whole years as a Langone student – from pre-pandemic, to the peak of Covid, to this new world we live in – I feel I’ve learned a lot in how to optimize the MBA experience as a part-time student. From making friends, to selecting classes, joining clubs, networking, and having fun, it is A LOT with a full-time job. However, you did not come to Stern so you could attend two evening classes a week for a few years and take nothing more from the experience. It’s also the people you’ll meet and the experience you get outside of the classroom that will leave you satisfied with your time here.…

Letter from the Editor: May 2021

Hello Sternies!

School is winding down for the academic year and so is The Oppy. In our final issue of Volume 57, we bring you…

– A review of Stern Follies: A Lad in B-School (spoiler alert, it was a HIT).

– We discuss pertinent topics, such as ‘Who is going to take over the SternMBAMemes Instagram account after MBA2 Morgan Salvan graduates?’

– I asked our graduating editorial board members to give me one last article to leave as their legacies. In a profound answer to that call, VP of Tech Mattia Janigro writes an MBA’s guide to Taylor Swift’s entire discography.…

Letter from the Editor: March 2021

Just when you thought 60-degree days and increased vaccine distribution couldn’t be topped, the March Issue of The Oppy is out now!

In this edition, we are excited to present our inaugural SternSounds playlist – a genius idea by AVP of Technology, Phuong Tran. Every month, we will crowdsource Sternies’ favorite songs into a Spotify playlist. Contribute to next month’s playlist here. You guys sure have some eclectic taste.
Now, back to the “news.” Langone Managing Editor, David Kalan, writes about why the American Rescue Plan, the largest federal aid package since the Great Depression, is bold, progressive, and transformative. …

Letter from the Editor: February 2021


We know you’ve been going through withdrawal without your favorite newspaper giving you nonsensical articles. But much like those five pounds of Covid/holiday weight, we are not going anywhere.

In the first issue of 2021, we have a healthcare professional’s research on the Covid vaccine and its distribution process (spoiler alert: the healthcare professional is me), a clever (and benevolent) way to secure a vaccine in NYC, and two more great Covid Journals: our very own MBA2, Lauren Marinaro and an exchange student from Tel Aviv, Moshe Hildesheimer. We review Professor Scott Galloway’s book, Post Corona: From Crisis to Opportunity.…
