B-school Newspaper Coalition: Chicago Booth’s ChiBus

This year, The Oppy started to reach out to other business school newspapers around the country to get a sense of how they’re running their papers. After meeting with several editor-in-chiefs from MBA programs, we are excited to announce we will be forming a coalition with a small but hopefully growing group of top graduate business schools. We are planning to partner up for future events and feature students from our partner schools, starting with the editor-in-chief of Chicago Booth’s MBA newspaper the ChiBus, Vikram Venkat.


Vikram: ChiBus is the newspaper of The University of Chicago Booth School of Business.…

Meet the Incoming LSG Co-Presidents!

By Courtney Ferguson & Dana Jones

After over a year of Zoom breakout rooms, socially-distanced coffee chats, and reminding professors to start the recording, Langone students can see the light at the end of this virtual learning tunnel (we hope!). As we eagerly await herd immunity and the return of a somewhat normal MBA experience, we can’t help but acknowledge the incredible ways Langone students have excelled during this time by continuing to support each other professionally and personally. This sense of community is what makes the Langone program so special, and why we can’t wait to embark on a new year as your co-presidents. …

Dear Oppy: April 2021

We are proud to continue our agony advice column, Dear Oppy: B-School Advice for the Everyday Sternie – “real questions, terrible advice.”

Oppy can be quite Stern at times but is here to answer the queries and qualms of all MBA students so send them his/her/their way at or fill this out, anonymously.

Received from a student:

Dear Oppy,

I am not in the FT or Langone program, where students are nicely slotted into color blocks to make lifelong friends. With Yacht Week looming in the near horizon, how do I ensure I can network – i.e. booze up with the right crew – before it is too late?

April ’21 SternSounds Playlist

April showers bring…STERNSOUNDS! We’re back at it again with yet another SternSounds playlist, packed with submissions from you all! The winter coats have officially been put away and replaced with umbrellas and Benadryl, because what is with the pollen this spring?! Better allergies than another sickness going around though. 

At 100 songs, not including the duplicates of Taylor Swift’s Fearless re-release, this playlist is yet again just as diverse as we expected.…

Taking a Calculated Chance on Chess

By Adam Trodd

When I was 5 years old, my blonde bowl-cut and I stood fascinated as an older student from my school battled and enthusiastically checkmated one of his classmates. Instantly hooked. Cue a fateful domino effect in which the game of chess (life-to-date) would serve as an ever-present character in my life ‘s story.  Forrest Gump once said, “You can tell a lot about a person by their shoes…I’ve had lots of shoes.” Well, in when it comes to the case of yours truly – I’ve played lots of chess.

Today, I work for an organization called Thinking Cup Learning.…
