CNN: "Asian-American groups accuse Harvard of discrimination"

CNN: "Asian-American groups accuse Harvard of discrimination"

. . . Chunyan Li, an assistant professor of accounting at Pace University who helped recruit groups to join the complaint, said the university's emphasis on race in the application process is unfair.

"This approach is subjective," Li said. "If it is all implemented objectively, then how come all Asians on average have such higher scores? What's the fairness in this? If (Harvard) pushes for (a) holistic approach, then make it fair. If you kept emphasizing race, then there is no way out."

Agence France Presse: "Well-funded Jet.com may be ecommerce game-changer"

Agence France Presse: "Well-funded Jet.com may be ecommerce game-changer"

. . . Larry Chiagouris, a Pace University professor of marketing, said Jet is using the membership model used successful by club stores such as Costco, which could attract customers.

Chiagouris said Amazon "is not universally loved" and that some retail partners are less than satisfied with Amazon's revenue sharing.

"If I were Jet, I would see which companies are not happy, and try to assure them, and bring them in," he said.

Still, Chiagouris said the ultimate goal for Jet may not be to beat Amazon but to join them.

"It is unlikely that it will take much share from Amazon," he said.

"Rather, its strategy seems to be to build up enough business to be able to sell itself to Amazon."

The Hill's Congress Blog: "US must support new entrepreneurial ventures to create jobs and remain competitive"

The Hill's Congress Blog: "US must support new entrepreneurial ventures to create jobs and remain competitive"

The United States needs to support new entrepreneurial ventures in order to create jobs, sustain innovation and remain competitive in a global economy, writes Bruce Bachenheimer, Clinical Professor of Management at Pace University's Lubin School of Business and Executive Director of its Entrepreneurship Lab. But lumping small business owners and innovative entrepreneurs in the same category will only serve to mask the problem.

Small business and entrepreneurship is not synonymous. Small businesses are certainly an important part of our economy, but they are quite different than high-growth entrepreneurial start-ups.

New York Times: "Verizon Bets on Video Ads in $4 Billion Deal for AOL"

. . . “They know that mobile is where it’s at if you want to get millennials,” said Kathryn Winsted, a professor at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business in New York. “They may sell ads, they may sell subscription content, but they need to figure out this market.”

San Francisco Chronicle: "Video fuels Verizon’s $4.4 billion AOL deal; could Yahoo be next?"

. . . “Huffington Post might be spun out for financial reasons, but that would be a mistake, because it is valuable content that Verizon needs to make the deal work,” said Larry Chiagouris, a marketing professor at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business in New York.

Bloomberg: "Elbow Room Coming to U.S. Skies as United Shifts Wide-Body Jets"

Bloomberg: "Elbow Room Coming to U.S. Skies as United Shifts Wide-Body Jets"

Coach passengers used to rubbing up against neighbors on crowded U.S. flights are about to get something unusual on a few United Airlines flights: elbow room.

As United shuffles its fleet and brings in a mix of new and used jets, it’s putting 10 Boeing Co. 777-200s on U.S. routes instead of just flying them abroad. A benefit for road warriors is that with two aisles instead of one, the wide-body 777 boasts twice as many of the coveted spots adjacent to those pathways as the narrow-bodies that predominate on U.S. routes.

“It would give people a higher percentage of aisle seats,” said Andrew Coggins Jr., a Pace University management professor in New York who has logged more than 1 million miles on United. “I prefer the aisle seat even if it means my shoulders get bumped by the flight attendants and all the people going by.”

E-Commerce Times: "The Great Apple Watch Marketing Mystery"

E-Commerce Times: "The Great Apple Watch Marketing Mystery"

. . . "My educated guess is that since this product will be sold in a different manner and more in line with the selling of luxury goods, the current Apple Genius employees may not be up to the task, and the selling process has likely emerged as the real bottleneck," said Larry Chiagouris, professor of marketing at Pace University.

Apple is probably "running as fast as it can to staff its stores with people who know not only how to sell computers, phones and tablets, but also how to sell luxury," he told the E-Commerce Times.
