E-Commerce Times: "Microsoft's New Groove"

E-Commerce Times: "Microsoft's New Groove"

. . . At the very least, Windows 10's suite of entertainment apps appear to be a step in the right direction, remarked Darren R. Hayes, assistant professor and director of cybersecurity at Pace University's Seidenberg School of CSIS.

"If its Groove music, video and TV services, and Xbox can gather some momentum, then they might actually give Apple and Google a run for their money," he told the E-Commerce Times.

Still, the market for streaming services is so heavily saturated with free offerings that Groove and Apple Music may be hard sells for Microsoft and Apple, Hayes pointed out.

Miami Herald: "Behemoths at sea: Cruise ships getting bigger, packing more passengers"

. . . Andrew Coggins, a clinical professor of management at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business, said cruise companies save on the most highly paid shipboard personnel such as captain, hotel manager and chief engineer with large ships.

“If you have, say, three 2,000-passenger ships, you have to have three of each of them,” he said. “And if you have one 6,000-passenger ship, you only have to have one of each.”

. . . Bruce Bachenheimer, executive director of the Entrepreneurship Lab at Pace University, says the rise of the Internet is fostering these co-marketing ventures. “When your only options to promote such partnerships were expensive television, radio or newspaper ads, it wasn’t really a viable proposition,” he says.

East Hampton Star: "History as a Beach Read"

East Hampton Star: "History as a Beach Read"

Writing a history book about four centuries of Long Island’s East End is rather like squeezing 12 adult humans into the trunk of a Maserati — it is going to be a tight fit. Marilyn E. Weigold, a professor who teaches at Pace University in the department of economics, history, and political science, has chosen to let the blue waters of Peconic Bay form the matrix for an engrossing collage of folklore and facts that tells an abbreviated but well-curated episodic history of Long Island’s eastern forks.

City & State: David Yassky on Law Education

Pace Law School Dean David Yassky discusses the recent national trend of enrollment decline at law schools and the efforts Pace is taking to combat the trend. Recently the school took steps to provide more scholarships to students and reduced tuition for out of state applicants, but Yassky says more importantly has been a focus on hands on education, providing students with real life experience before they graduate.

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."

. . . Larry Chiagouris, a professor of marketing at Pace University's Lubin School of Business in New York, said while Pao may be a brilliant strategist, she has "never managed large groups of people before.

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.

Westchester County Business Journal: "Enrollments up and down at business schools"

. . . Pace University Dean of Admissions Donna Grand Pre said the university’s Lubin School of Business saw an 11 percent rise in enrollment for its graduate programs from 758 students in fall 2012 to 841 in fall 2014. One of the main reasons for the rise, she said, was the business school’s introduction of a Master of Science degree in social media and mobile marketing that is co-branded with the interactive design studio company MediaStorm. 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.
