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.”

New York Times: "The Long Journey of ‘The Visit’"

New York Times: "The Long Journey of ‘The Visit’"

. . . To work away from prying eyes, Mr. Doyle asked Mr. Kirdahy and the show’s creators if he could do a workshop with musical-theater students at Pace University, where Mr. Doyle was an artist in residence. The April workshop convinced him to that it would be best to stage “The Visit” in one act to build momentum and emphasize its roots as a parable.

It also allowed him a chance to test out one of his bolder ideas: bolstering the presence of the young Claire and Anton, underscoring the love story beneath the bitterness. In the first two productions, the young lovers showed up in flashbacklike sequences. But in his version, “they’re omnipresent,” Mr. Doyle said.

Downtown Express: "Pace students find traffic problems on William St."

. . . Twenty-four Pace University students conducted a traffic safety survey in their spring urban planning class and presented it this month to Community Board 1’s Financial District Committee.  The survey showed numerous traffic violations, eroding crosswalk and vehicle stop lines and dilapidated or confusing street signs along William St. and Nassau St. in the Financial District.

Michael Levine, the students’ professor and Community Board 1’s planning consultant and an urban planning professor, presented the survey at the meeting.  It was initiated at the request of concerned board members who have witnessed frequent accidents in the seven intersections the survey studied — along William St. where it crosses at Beaver St., Liberty St., John St. and Maiden Lane and along Nassau St. where it crosses at Maiden Lane, Beekman St. and Spruce St.

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 Congress Blog: "Iraq-Syria conflict: An enigma, or the dawn of a Jaziran state?"

07/07/2014

The Hill's Congress Blog: "Iraq-Syria conflict: An enigma, or the dawn of a Jaziran state?"

"As on Syria, Congress should continue with its prudent policy of not rushing into intervention nor force the hands of the president to do just that," writes Michael Izady, a professor of Middle Eastern and Western history at Pace University in New York. "The debate in Washington about U.S. policy on Iraq and Syria and the possibility of the emergence of an al-Qaeda run state in the area should be informed instead by lessons learned from our past interaction with the complex cultures of the two countries and their myriad ethnicities, priorities and collective memories."
