Faculty Spotlight:  Dan Gode

Hello, Professor, Thank you again for meeting with me. Let’s start off by introducing yourself where you’re from, and what you teach at Stern?

I’m originally from India, although I’ve been in the USA for thirty-five years.   This is my twenty-fifth year at Stern.  

I teach many courses at Stern in various areas. I used to teach the entire financial accounting core to MBAs. Now I teach a wide range of interdisciplinary classes ranging from financial modeling, advanced accounting, business drivers, and data analytics in python, to renewable energy.

Tell us a little bit more about your journey to teaching.

Stern Faculty Spotlight: Claudia Perlich

“As you’re approaching your career, don’t spend too much time planning because life happens in unexpected ways. Maybe you have figured this out already, but I think the skill is to create opportunities. When I say create opportunities it does not mean strategically looking to advance in a career but to do good work for a lot of people. They will remember you, and it will be useful.”

Stern Faculty Spotlight: Julian Yeo

“To me, balancing flavors is like if there’s a lot of spice, a little sugar is going to allow you to create more depth. If something is very fatty, or buttery, you need to round it out with acid. So I always think about debit and credit–now I have four different things I’m trying to balance.”

This month’s Stern Faculty Spotlight features Professor Julian Yeo, Clinical Associate Professor of Accounting at Stern. His research focuses on how accounting numbers are mapped into equity valuation.

Prior to Stern, Professor Yeo was a full-time faculty member at Columbia Business School and the University of Melbourne, and was a recipient of numerous teaching awards, including the Stern Distinguished Teaching Award.…

Stern Faculty Spotlight: Nate Pettit

“It’s not about everybody becoming a CEO. It’s about hopefully having conversations that give people the courage to be true to themselves. And then when I see people being more true to themselves, that’s where I sit back and I’m just like, ‘I’m so freaking lucky that I get to do what I do.’” -Nate Pettit
