In the year 2000…

(Shout out to Conan O’Brien with that title!)

This BW article talks to the new dean of Stern about his plans for the future of the school. Highlights include: reducing Stern’s dependence on Wall St. (gonna be a tough one), increasing the global presence of Stern, and making everyone wear a similar uni-sex tunic. Ok, so the first two are true, and the last is just what I would like to see happen (it would make getting dressed in the morning, so much easier!). The article talks about how NYU has been hit the hardest of all the top-tier B-Schools because of its dependence on Wall St. I believe they quote that 18% of the graduating class was without a job, six-months after graduation. That is nothing to sneeze at…the new dean wants to promote other areas of the business world and send Stern students all over the globe. An admirable plan to say the least…but it is going to be very hard to do. NYC is dominated by finance and Stern and Wall St. are synonymous with each other. Reducing a relationship such as that is a very tough task for anyone to take on, but has to especially hard for someone who is brand spanking new to the gig.

I thought this article might be helpful to some of you who have interviews coming up (cough***cough***xlick***cough***cough). Best of luck to all those who are interviewing and a very special good luck to Dean Peter Henry (never trust a man with two first names) because he has his work cut out for him!
