New York Post: "US fast cash for European crooks"

. . . There’s no good data on how much Americans lose abroad vs. at home. But global payment-card fraud is big business — about $8.7 billion in annual losses for US financial firms, a big part of it “skimmer” fraud, says Darren Hayes of Pace University.

AACSB eNEWSLINE: "Interview with Industry: Bringing the Reality of Business to the Business School"

. . . It was precisely because of my career ranging from Fortune 50 senior executive to internet entrepreneur that I sought to be Dean of the Lubin School of Business, says Neil Braun. When I asked myself in what context could my full range of experiences, temperament, passion for involvement with my own alma mater, and personal strengths be most valuable, I realized that being a dean of a business school was a strong possibility. Having just finished my fourth year as dean, I am more excited and challenged than ever to make sure that Lubin educates the whole person—all the dimensions that are necessary for success. The traditional academic learning goals are as necessary as they ever have been, but they are clearly not sufficient in this fast-changing global economy. We are, therefore, implementing curriculum and new programs to address the technical skills necessary for today's work environment, to ensure that our students achieve a level of social intelligence that is necessary to be effective in the working world.

U.S. News: "Decipher the True Cost of Your Online Degree"

. . . Kathy Hughes, an online undergraduate student at Pace University, showed similar initiative when she was comparing the duration and cost of possible online bachelor's programs.

"I went to every single tab on the whole Pace website, and I printed screen shots," says Hughes, a government public safety worker living on Long Island. "I had everything in front of me before I even contacted the school."

Hughes, who had completed an associate degree, also made sure she knew just how many credits Pace would accept. She says it's important for students to know that information before they enroll so they can compare the costs at different schools.

"Have a really good idea of what you've taken and what your grades were," says Hughes, who was able to begin her time at Pace as a junior due to the transfer credits the school accepted.

NewsFactor Network: "Are Nadella's Historic Layoffs Best for Microsoft?"

. . . Jonathan Hill, an associate dean of Pace University’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems in New York, said though many technology “power users” have lost top of mind awareness for Microsoft, the company’s products including Skype, Xbox and, of course, Office are in consumers’ hands every day.

“Perhaps more critically, Microsoft’s backend cloud computing and coding tools including SQL Server, Visual Studio and Windows Azure run many of the apps that consumers and businesses depend on,” he said. “Nadella’s changes are part of an ambitious and long overdue revamp of what is clearly a healthy company with a strong foundation of core products and growing revenues.”
