NEWS RELEASE: The Pacific Century - Pace Announces Global Asia Studies Major

NEWS RELEASE: The Pacific Century - Pace Announces Global Asia Studies Major

 

NEW YORK – The 21st century is described as the Pacific Century – a century dominated, especially economically, by the rise of modern Asia-Pacific countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, India and Taiwan.  In recognition of this eastward turn, this fall the Department of History on Pace University’s New York City campus launched a new major – Global Asia Studies, a program designed for the study of Asian cultures, languages, histories and economies. The new program will focus on the development of bilingual specialists and the development of experts in comparative Asian cultures.

“In today’s global economy, the competitive advantage favors those who have foreign language skills and knowledge of international cultures in addition to their own.  The breadth and depth of the Global Asia Studies program will equip graduates with both,” Dyson College of Arts and Sciences Dean Nira Herrmann said.

Global Asia Studies is multidisciplinary and includes faculty from disciplines such as history, modern languages, literature, economics, and communication studies.  “Our program is unique among Asian studies because it focuses on the interconnectedness of Asian cultures and their links to the rest of the world,” said Ronald K. Frank, program co-director.

The program offers two tracks: The Asian Languages and Cultures track and the Comparative Asian Studies track. The Asian Languages and Cultures track is geared toward students who wish to become bilingual specialists.  The Comparative Asian Studies is tailored to students who wish to pursue professional careers in government, multinational institutions or academic careers. Curricular activities may be enriched with local internships and travel abroad opportunities.

Students majoring in Global Asia Studies will find numerous job opportunities in multinational corporations, international law, government, medicine, science, higher education, and cultural institutions.

“Pace University has always been an innovator, and this exciting new program reflects Dyson College’s commitment to grow and evolve with the world around it,” said Global Asia Studies co-director Joseph T. Lee.

To learn more about the program, call Ronald K. Frank or Joseph T. Lee. Dr. Frank can be reached at (212) 346-1463 or by email at rfrank2@pace.edu. Dr. Lee can be reached at (212) 346-1827 or by email atjlee@pace.edu. Visit the website at http://www.pace.edu/dyson/academic-departments-and-programs/history/ba-in-global-asia-studies.

Washington Times: Aaron Alexis' history renews debate between mental issues, gun crimes"

 

. . . “He did go to a very dangerous facility, a place that would be quite dangerous for him. He’s going to a place where he most likely will be jeopardizing his own life,” said Richard Shadick, director of the counseling center and an associate professor of psychology at Pace University in New York City. “This was not a movie theater where you can get in and get out. This is a highly guarded facility. There most likely was some self-destructive intent here.”

InformationWeek: "Twitter Prepares IPO, Facebook Pain In Mind"

InformationWeek: "Twitter Prepares IPO, Facebook Pain In Mind"

. . . Darren R. Hayes, a computer science professor at Pace University in New York and a former investment banker, agreed in a phone interview that Twitter appears to have chosen to go public at the right time.

“The general market conditions are not unfavorable,” he said. “It may be a good time for Twitter to go public. There doesn’t seem to be too much negative information about the macroeconomic climate.”

Hayes suggests a repeat of the Facebook IPO disaster is unlikely. He blames the underwriter rather than the company itself for failing to attract enough support from institutional investors. He also notes that concerns about Facebook’s growth had been raised when GM publicly distanced itself from Facebook advertising (only to return a year later).

Hayes says that a concern among investors in social media companies is that company business models may be vulnerable to being copied. He doesn’t see that as an issue for Twitter in the near term, but he says it’s something to consider for any social media company.

Globe and Mail (Canada): "India leads emerging-market charge at G20"

 

. . . Surendra Kaushik, a finance professor at Pace University in New York, said the Indian government has yet to lay out a coherent plan for tacking the deficits or overall lagging economic growth.

Prof. Kaushik said that right now, the Indian government is making things worse. This week it passed a $20-billion food security bill, which would subsidize wheat, rice and other cereals for up to 800 million people.

“The government is handing out goodies they don’t have,” Prof. Kaushik said. “Each ministry more or less initiates its own programs. The finance ministry and the planning commission put them in the budget, and then they go to international markets to borrow the needed funds.”

CIO Today: "Should Microsoft Hand CEO Reins to Nokia's Stephen Elop?

 

. . . Joseph M. Pastore Jr., Professor Emeritus in Residence at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business in New York, told us what is happening at Microsoft is what happens to all innovative firms: The fate of the successful entrepreneur is ultimately her or his own demise. Elop probably can’t stem the tide.

“Ballmer was left to close the door on the firm’s entrepreneurial past,” he said. “As for who will open a new door, it’s little surprise that there is no ‘crowned prince.’ Structure follows strategy. Absent the latter, there can be no former. But, we’ll know it when we see it.”
