Always Take the Stairs

Trust in Yourself and Always Take the Stairs

Welcome to Stern! The next couple of weeks will be a whirlwind of new experiences and an overload of information.  But, we promise, the next two years will be some of the most memorable. Of course, that doesn’t mean they will always be easy – as you prepare to embark on a new journey as a Full-Time Sternie, the veteran MBA2s have banded together to give you some lasting advice:

“Relax, it’s all going to come together in the end.”

“Trust in yourself and be open to exploring different career paths. You may find a new passion or interest that you weren’t anticipating.”

What We’re Listening To

Ten Episodes of NPR’s Planet Money to Help You Geek Out for the Semester’s Final Week

It’s the last week of classes! Some of these subjects you probably love; others you’re probably just going to have to tolerate. But throw in some real-world stories and you might just find that magical tipping point between the two. Here are ten episodes of Planet Money from National Public Radio that we’ve found can change the way you feel on everything from A/B testing to inflation:

Firms & Markets and The Global Economy:

How do you make the entire population of a country believe in a currency that doesn’t yet exist?…

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 MBAMEC

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

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.…
