U.S. News: "Decipher the True Cost of Your Online Degree"

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?"

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.”

Kansas City Business Journal: "What Russell Stover brings to the table for Lindt"

Kansas City Business Journal: "What Russell Stover brings to the table for Lindt"

. . . Kathryn Winsted, associate professor of marketing at Pace University's Lubin School of Business in New York, found the combination of Lindt and Russell Stover extremely interesting.

She often lectures about the moves Mars Inc. made to fend off competition from The Hershey Co. in the 1980s. Mars looked for growth by expanding into new areas, acquiring Dove Bar International Inc. and entering the ice cream market. The company later started making Dove chocolate candies for adults.

"The Russell Stover deal is kind of similar in that regard," Winsted said. "This is an acquisition that will get Lindt into different places in the stores, with possibilities for new displays, especially during the holidays. So I really think the packaging is a big part of what Lindt is looking for in this deal. They could do large and small packages, and use some of the traditional products they already have."

Winsted said the deal has the added benefit of providing Lindt with a lower price point and brands that have more mass appeal.

"The Lindt chocolates tend to be much more expensive, catering to a more sophisticated client," Winsted said. "Only certain people buy them. But Russell Stover has more mass appeal in the United States. So I'm wondering if smaller truffles might start showing up in those heart-shaped boxes, compared to the large truffles in more expensive gift bags that they have now."

Journal News: "Lifeguards train hard to dive in, save lives"

Journal News: "Lifeguards train hard to dive in, save lives"

. . . The American Red Cross lifeguard certification, widely considered the standard in the field, requires about 30 hours of training, 80 percent of which is skill-related, according to Katherine Palladino, the longtime aquatics director at Pace University.

Completing the program also grants certification in CPR, first aid and automated external defibrillation. The CPR and lifeguarding certifications only last one and two years, respectively, and an abbreviated recertification class must be taken before it expires. Otherwise, the entire process must be started from the beginning.

Palladino, a Chappaqua resident who has nearly two decades of experience training lifeguards, teaches American Red Cross certification.

"I've been happy with the support they provide; I've been happy with the curriculum they provide," said Palladino, who had 120 students in June alone. "I think it's a good program."

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 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.
