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.”

. . . Amar Gupta, dean of the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems at Pace University said it's too soon to say if any new jobs will come to Westchester, but he said the announcement bodes well.

American Banker: "Small Banks Should Team Up to Fight Cyberattacks"

"While major cybersecurity breaches like the recent attack on Target tend to grab headlines, smaller banks are actually much more vulnerable to cyberattacks than their larger peers," writes Darren R. Hayes, assistant professor and director of cybersecurity at Pace University’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems.  "Yet many community banks have failed to invest sufficiently in security."

New sessions to focus on corporate governance, cybercrime, risk management, pertinent regulations like Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering, Office of Foreign Assets Control, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and the evolving Dodd-Frank Act, Basel III, and Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act

New York, NY – July 7, 2014 — Today’s regulatory environment is ultra-complex and rapidly evolving. The Center for Global Governance, Reporting and Regulation at Pace University and the Association of International Bank Auditors announce a new sixth cycle of the Certified Compliance and Regulatory Professional (CCRP®) certificate program, designed to develop the critically important proficiencies essential for today’s financial services and other industry professionals.

The new cycle begins September 18, 2014, and continues to March 5, 2015. Classes will be held at Pace University’s Midtown Center in the historic Fred French Building at 551 Fifth Avenue between 45th and 46th Streets.

Recognized as the ‘standard’ for training and development courses by bank executives and regulators, the CCRP® program offers a 26-week session with intense and in-depth exposure to key aspects of governance, risk management, regulatory strategy, and relevant regulations taught by industry professionals and Pace professors. The program includes coverage of regulations in key foreign countries in a comparison with U.S. practices.

“Our CCRP® Program is designed to be unique and comprehensive, with participants from banks, brokerages, asset management and trading firms, and supporting professions including law and consulting firms,” says Robert J. Chersi, the former CFO of Fidelity Investments who was recently named Executive Director of the Center at Pace’s Lubin School of Business.

Sessions include detailed discussions of current compliance and regulatory issues, and examinations of real-life case studies. Team presentations provide experience in applying coursework to actual business problems.

The CCRP® at Pace provides growth opportunities and positions global financial services professionals as leaders in the compliance community, giving them an edge in a very competitive job market. The program has been designed with the rigorous content demanded by an academic agenda while stressing the important practical dimensions of real-world experience in the compliance field. Professors from Pace University, all with distinguished prior careers in the private sector, created the syllabus alongside veteran compliance professionals from some of the world’s leading international banks and their regulators.

Guest speakers drawn from prestigious New York law firms, Big Four Accounting firms, and the regulatory community will complement the joint Pace-AIBA team.

The Center also has expanded its other professional development offerings, including “boot camps” that can be customized to an institution’s desired location, topics, and duration, as well as on-line videos and publications that enable distance learning.

The CCRP® at Pace has been approved for Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit by New York State.

More information about the CCRP® program is available at www.pace.edu/ccrp, and for all of the programs by contacting the Center’s Chairman Emeritus Jack James at jjames@pace.edu or Executive Director Bob Chersi at rchersi@pace.edu.

The Hill's Campaign Blog: "To protect students, protect internships"

04/18/2014

Pace University President Stephen J. Friedman published an op-ed on The Hill's Campaign Blog on the value of internships, paid or unpaid, as part of a path to a successful career for college students.

Columbia University’s recent decision to stop offering academic credit for internships is the latest in a disturbing trend toward policies and actions that fundamentally threaten the internship, a vital career path for millions of students nationwide, writes Pace University President Stephen J. Friedman in an op-ed published on The Hill's Campaign Blog. While perhaps well intentioned, the decision by Columbia and other schools fails to address the problem it is intended to fix, and, if it becomes widespread, could dramatically limit the availability of an extremely valuable educational experience. 

Of course all students need access to educational experiences they can afford and that are respectful to them as students and employees. That is fundamental. But discussion of the “paid internship” question should start with two essential points: (1) ideally, all interns should be paid at least the minimum wage; but (2) a properly structured unpaid internship can be a valuable part of a student’s education. We should not throw the baby out with the bathwater.
