Softball Recap: Stern Beats Cornell

Stern Beats Back Cornell (15-8) to Win Second Game of the Season

In the second game of the 2016 softball season, Stern soundly beat Cornell 15-8 on a crisp, late April evening. An eight-run second inning, which included a three-run blast from Justin Maloney (’15), helped seal the victory. Cornell came back strong, pulling to within three runs after the fifth inning (11-8), but the Sternies rallied for four more runs in the bottom of the sixth to close out the game.

Recapping the 2016 MBA Media & Entertainment Conference

Stern hosted the 2016 MBA Media and Entertainment Conference at NYU’s Kimmel Center on Friday, April 8th. The conference was organized in collaboration with Columbia, Haas, Fuqua, Sloan and Wharton.

Events kicked off with a lively fireside chat between Disney/ABC president, Ben Sherwood, and ABC News anchor Cecilia Vega. The pair discussed the future of traditional television as more and more subscribers choose to “cut the chord” and what new mediums, such as virtual reality, have in store for the industry of entertainment.

Panels throughout the day ranged from roundtables on new media investments and entrepreneurship, virtual reality and the future of the music industry to native advertising, off-platform digital video and the experiences of former MBAs who now work in media and entertainment.…

Tommy Kail Comes to Stern

Kristi Berry, MBA Class of 2016

With deepest apologies to the professors of our Monday morning classes, we had somewhere else to be that day.  You might say, we had to be in the room where it happens.

The day in question was March 28th, and the room an unassuming KMC classroom, where Dolly Chugh’s Managerial Skills class – and more than a few hangers-on – packed in to listen to Hamilton director Tommy Kail speak about leadership.  Some came to the session for advice from a seasoned leader, while others came to hear more about that musical your friends won’t stop talking about.…

Think Social, Drink Local: Fashion Meets Charity

Callie Taylor, MBA Class of 2016  

On March 4, the Social Enterprise Association and the Luxury & Retail Club came together to organize Think Social, Drink Local: a fashion show featuring local designers and food vendors that raises funds to support the Social Impact Internship Fund (SIIF). SIIF provides a financial stipend of up to $10,000 to select first-year, full-time MBA students who wish to complete a summer internship working at the intersection of business and society, where they can use their business education to positively impact the broader world around them. SIIF recipients have worked with non-profit organizations, for-profit social enterprises, and started their own social ventures.…

From the Editor


It is my great pleasure to announce the 2016-17 Stern Opportunity Co-Editors-in-Chief:

Congratulations to Anne Gregory and Keith Riegert!

A few quick editor’s notes on Anne and Keith:

Anne Gregory

Anne Gregory, Class of 2017Anne Gregory, Class of 2017

As an MBA1 Managing Editor this year, Anne has consistently stepped up to the plate to ensure the publication is stacked with fantastic content that highlights the broadest possible cross section of the student body. She was often the first to volunteer to take the lead on tight deadlines, and always delivered in a pinch. Her management of the recurring “Spotlight on Women in Business” feature highlighted not only phenomenal women in various corners of the business world, but also showcased the collaborative potential between The Oppy and other clubs on campus.…

The Math Behind how U.S. News and World Report Dinged NYU Stern

Keith Riegert, Managing Editor 

Keith Head ShotKeith Head ShotHad I known that the average GMAT score for students accepted to Stern would be 560, I would have comfortably avoided the eve-of-test panic attack I succumbed to. I’m kidding, of course: While I may have panicked before the GMAT, last year’s average score for Stern was not anywhere close to 560—it was 720, right in the same spot it’s been for five years straight.

When U.S. News and World Report issued its 2017 Business School Rankings, dropping NYU Stern to #20 (thanks to a single missing value), the publication informed Stern’s administration that they had simply “estimated” the missing number.…

Letter from the Editor

NickNickHappy Leap Year! May the Earth tilt ever so slightly in the direction of your wildest dreams today. This week’s Opportunity asks a simple question: what boundaries have you pushed recently? I’m not talking about begging your girlfriend until she finally agreed to see Daredevil with you. What’s the last goal you set that felt unattainable at the time? When did you last challenge yourself to see the world from a brand new perspective, to watch the telecast of the political party you don’t identify with? (Okay, that last one was meant as a joke. I think?) If Rihanna can cover a Tame Impala track in a surprisingly successful manner, dear readers, I submit that the sky truly is the limit of our dreams.…
