THE STERN OPPORTUNITY

If I Could Be Like @Jack

On March 1, we were fortunate to have Jack Dorsey as the keynote speaker of the NYU Entrepreneurs Festival. Jack has developed cult-like status in the tech entrepreneurship community and it was easy to see why.  He inspired the crowd with his stories on the origins of Twitter and Square and his thoughts on good design.  He spoke impressively and answered questions on a broad range of topics related to starting and growing his ventures.

Throw in his good looks and it is no wonder why budding entrepreneurs want to be like Jack.

While I hope that the next Jack Dorsey was sitting somewhere in that NYU crowd, I imagine that more than half of the people in the room are never going to start their own business.…

Upon arrival to the Art’otel, our gorgeous, Danube River facing hotel in Budapest, we soon learned that one of the best restaurants in the city was half a block away.  Indulging in these traditional and local fish stews was an amazing way to kick off our week in Budapest and set the tone for the rest of our trip.

The night before classes started we took a bus tour of the city where we quickly learned that Budapest is actually two cities, Buda and Pest, split by the Danube River.  We ended our tour on the Buda side at the spectacular Buda Castle. …

The Rules of Fashion

I can’t believe that another summer has gone by and that Labor Day will have sadly passed by the time this article goes to press.  I generally over pack, but the last long weekend of the summer tends to bring out the crazy in me.  I try jamming as many outfits into my weekend bag, hoping to get the opportunity to wear some of my favorite seasonal items…like white pants and jeans.  I’ll even pack all of my bathing suits in case I need the extra options.

Some fashion rules seem to be pretty well ingrained into our culture.  For example, you shouldn’t wear white pants after Labor Day weekend (at least if you reside in the Northeast). …

Personalitini: Tales of Drinks and Dates

Liz Batsche, Full-time MBA Class of 2014

PersonalitiniPersonalitiniIt may be hard to believe, if you know me well, but I do sometimes give people the benefit of the doubt. I am trying to be more open with dating. In the past, I have found myself too quick to eliminate potential matches. Through the mass popularity and rise of online dating, the selection of potential suitors has become incredibly specific. With a filter option, I can wipe out thousands of potential matches in the New York Metro Area. You smoke? No thanks, Next! You’re under Six Feet Tall? I love heels, Next!…

What part of the world has 1.6% of the population, but 3.4% of world GDP?  What part of the world has been ravaged by enemy occupation, war, and Communism, but is now thriving?  What part of the world is poised for amazing growth and development?  The part of the world I am speaking of is Central and Eastern Europe, of course.  And what better way of seeing this part of the world, and learning more about the business environment there, is there, besides DBi Hungary?  I would be hard pressed to come up with a better answer.…
