THE STERN OPPORTUNITY

David LaChapelle’s Fotografiska Exhibit

“I believe that artwork is only finished once it is met by the viewer.”- David LaChapelle

Last week, in the middle of a torrential downpour, the Stern Arts, Culture and Cuisine Club sojourned to Fotografiska New York, located in the heart of one of New York’s most quaint and idyllic neighbourhoods, Gramercy Park. A branch of Sweden’s famed centre for contemporary photography, Fotografiska is a haven for culture and creativity, with thought provoking exhibits that inspire one to break out the mould, bare their soul and pour it on paper. Walking into the foyer, one is whisked away to a world of glamour and high culture.…

Our Time Is Now: International Day of the Girl

On International Day of the Girl (IDG) and Ada Lovelace Day (ALD), I’d love to quickly share the story of a woman who broke cliches around women in STEM before the word STEM even came about.

Before we go there, are you curious about how this day came to be? On October 11, 2022, we commemorate the 10th anniversary of the International Day of the Girl (IDG). It all started at the World Conference on Women in Beijing, where countries unanimously adopted the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action–an action advancing the rights of not just women, but girls. In 2011, the UN General Assembly adopted Resolution 66/170 to declare the International Day of the Girl Child.…

The Graduate: Conor Clark, Oppy Alumni

The Graduate: Conor Clark, Oppy Alumni 

By: Phuong Tran 

This month’s The Graduate features Oppy alumni Conor Clark, whose career has traversed architectural engineering, consulting, and as of late, a band, music label, and acting. He maneuvers these ventures with the grace and business acumen of someone who has…you guessed it, an MBA. I’ve known Conor since I took over his famous Stern Singles column (from which he is now engaged!), and it was wonderful to catch up and learn more about just how applicable business is in every interest you may have in life. 

Conor Clark…where do we begin with him?

The Beginning of the End of the Golden Era of Tennis

It is January 2017. Roger Federer and Serena Williams have won the Australian Open. Little did we know, this was their last dance together.

2017 was the year of the throwback. It wasn’t long after Roger, Rafa, Serena and Venus had all been declared “done,” “over,” or “washed” (depending on what part of the world you were from). Roger and Rafa went on to split all four Grand Slams that year. Serena beat Venus in the 2017 Australian Open final while she was two months pregnant. As someone who grew up in the era of the “Big 3” and as an unapologetic Rafa Nadal fan, the Australian Open in 2017 was the most fun I have had watching a Grand Slam, despite the result (Federer beat Nadal in the fifth set after beating a breakdown).…

Amy Knapp – NYU Stern MBA Alumni 

Our most recent MBA spotlight features alumna Amy Knapp (’05). Today Amy is the COO and a partner at Corsair, a private equity investment company. Amy received her undergraduate degree in accounting from the University of Albany and completed her CPA requirements shortly thereafter. Upon graduation, Amy received an offer from PwC and worked in the firm’s capital markets audit and assurance practice. Amy was eventually able to parlay her Big 4 experience into a job at J.P. Morgan, a client with whom she had built a strong relationship. At that time her current firm, Corsair, was a subsidiary within J.P.…

Why we need cruciferous veggies in our fridges right now

What is it?

Derived from Cruciferae (Neo Latin) which literally means cross-bearing, this veggie family is named as such for the shape of their flowers, whose four petals resemble a cross. 

Cruciferous vegetables belong to Brassicaceae (also called Cruciferae), which includes the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, comprises approximately 375 genera, and over 3,000 species.

These bundles of wholesomeness are also famous as cole crops in North America, brassicas in Europe & Australia, also referred to as mustards or the cabbage family. 

Family Tree

These plants are selectively bred using Triangle of U for highly desired traits leading to many edible species gifted to us by previous generations.…

Oppy News Digest

Hi reader,

Welcome back to school!! I hope you got some much needed rest over the summer. I personally did not; actually I am pretty sure you didn’t either. I hope you at least had some fun! We at the Oppy have had a rough summer since many of our veteran writers abandoned us (they graduated, but same difference), and our small board just got a whole lot more intimate (we are hiring and we don’t bite, we promise!!). While you were tiring away at your internship (daily happy hours), slogging through those summer classes (international vacations) and working on yourself (six hour Netflix binge) – you’ll be shocked to learn the earth continued to spin and somehow news kept on breaking.…

Opinion: We Can Not Make the Supreme Court Political

There has been quite a lot of discussion regarding the Supreme Court after their landmark Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization ruling, which overturned the Roe and Casey rulings. The Dobbs ruling essentially ended the federally guaranteed right to an abortion and brought back that debate to the states. Some have called for President Biden to pack the courts to add more justices and tilt the favor back for more liberal rulings. Others have taken more drastic measures by paying for sightings of the U.S. Supreme Court justices who overturned Roe. Regardless of your political position, we need to be very careful with how we view the Supreme Court, as it is the fundamental glue that holds U.S.…

Stern Singles Presents: Katie Jagodka

This article has been edited for clarity.

Sternie Testimonials:

Katie is great and the most self-aware person I have met. One thing I wanna say is, “Spicy boys only.” 

Katie is one of the best people I know! She is so thoughtful and kind and just a great friend. She’s also so much fun!! She’s always down to travel and try new things—she’s the life of the party!! 

If there’s one way to describe Katie Jagodka, it’s “down” – always down for anything and anywhere. I had the pleasure of meeting the vibrant and badass Katie, SoCal native, yoga instructor/pending consultant, with non-basic music taste.…

‘Guts’ for Health!

We all have that one friend who’s friends with the entire school and beyond or who is the star of the happy hour even before anyone is drinking up or downing shots. Interestingly, Dr. Johnson of Oxford University has found that people who are extremely social have a more diverse gut microbiome! 

When you are feeding yourself, or your cravings, you’ve got to remember you are not just feeding yourself, but also the trillions of gut bacteria you’ve cultivated inside you. Since the food you put in your gut acts ultimately as an important part of the culture medium for these bacteria, it decides what kind of bacteria die off and which ones survive and thrive.…
