U.S. News: "Avoid 4 Mistakes When Asking an Employer to Pay for an Online Degree"

. . . Fortunately, David Done, a meter reader for a New Jersey power company, didn't have to think outside the box when he asked to pursue an online associate degree in wireless networking through Pace University. His company had a tuition reimbursement policy that allowed online education – his best option as a working father of three. 

When he applied, he needed to clearly explain why his education would benefit the company. 

"If you have any kind of tuition reimbursement, I would take advantage of it," he says. "School is just so expensive right now. I wouldn't be able to go to school if I didn't have this."

E-Commerce Times: "Hacking Team's Dingy Laundry Hung Out Online"

. . . Hacking Team makes spyware to infiltrate desktops and mobile devices, and to seize instant messages, text messages, phone call records and other data, while evading most antivirus products.

The stolen data, which was posted on the Internet, reportedly includes executive emails, customer invoices and source code.

The hackers also hijacked Hacking Team's Twitter feed for 12 hours and used it to distribute samples of the stolen files.

One document reportedly suggests Hacking Team has been stonewalling a year-long United Nations investigation into its sales to various governments.

"What is alarming is that this sophisticated malware developer couldn't protect this type of high-tech intellectual property," Darren Hayes, director of cybersecurity at Pace University's Seidenberg School of CSIS, told the E-Commerce Times.

The school also recently introduced a customer intelligence and data analytics master’s degree for those looking to enhance their credentials, especially those switching career paths, Grand Pre said.

“For those that have come out of the workforce, they often need a professional credential to go to the next level,” she said.

The Hill's Congress Blog: "Obama's trade bill faces tough opposition by unions"

The Hill's Congress Blog: "Obama's trade bill faces tough opposition by unions"

Union leaders are against President Obama's trade bill because they are fearful that increases in wages and employment in the export and foreign trade sectors will further diminish the role of unions and the huge salaries and many perks they receive, writes John Alan James, a professor at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business and chairman emeritus of its Center for Global Governance, Reporting and Regulation.
