Press Release: What do Beth Comstock, Tom Davenport, V. Kumar, Heather Wilson Randy Bean, Bill Franks, and Theresa Kushner have in common? The Analytics Hall of Fame!

On March 25, luminaries, C-suite executives, and top experts were honored at the Inaugural Award Ceremony of the Analytics Hall of Fame hosted at Pace University. Many of the most prominent names in the analytics and digital worlds were represented. Beth Comstock, bestselling author of “Imagine It Forward” kicked off the event, sharing her insights on change and innovation leadership, a pillar of the Analytics Hall of Fame. Comstock was interviewed by Neil Braun, Pace’s Lubin School of Business Dean and former Chairman and CEO of Viacom Entertainment.

The Lubin School of Business at Pace offers a graduate program, an MS in Customer Intelligence and Analytics, and an undergraduate program, a BBA in Business Analytics. Analytics is also integrated across all business disciplines. “Data analytics is part of every business discipline in every sector of the economy and at the Lubin School of Business at Pace we are integrating it across the curriculum in addition to specialized majors, minors and degree programs,” said Braun.

Comstock spoke about her career and how she anticipated and managed change. “I took my marketing degree seriously,” said Comstock. “I lived in the markets. Marketing is not about advertising, it’s about strategy and innovation and seeing where the world is going. So make sure you have a boss that will let you try something new.”

The second part of the event recognized influential leaders in the analytics field.

“We are now entering a ‘golden age’ of analytics,” said Tony Branda, DPS, Founder of the Analytics Hall of Fame and Professor of Digital Marketing and Analytics at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business. “In this new age, it is time for practitioners and academics of analytics to have their own Hall of Fame, the Analytics Hall of Fame, providing a well-deserved center stage to recognize unsung heroes and increase professional visibility.”

“I am thrilled with the support we received from those we consider to be superstars in the analytics and digital arena,” said Branda. “With the support of these inductees I am hopeful the Analytics Hall of Fame can build a strong membership base and powerful community.”

“Fifteen years ago, we didn’t have these practitioners called Chief Data Officer or Chief Analytics Officer,” said Heather Wilson, Chief Analytics and Data Officer, L Brands. “The financial crisis birthed all of this and even the digitization that is going on now. As a practitioner, I’ve enjoyed seeing the impact of analytics on healthcare, insurance, and banking, and now retail.”

Lubin offers courses, boot camps, and competitions in response to evolving needs in the marketplace. The school also works with corporate partners to host competitions that give students professional experience in data analytics consulting projects. Winning teams are awarded internships and job interviews for full-time placements. Recent competitions were hosted by Lubin with GroupM, the number one global media investment management group.

Leaders In Financial Reporting Recognized At Lubin School Of Business’ 2nd Annual Pacesetters In Financial Reporting Conference

11/28/2017

Leaders In Financial Reporting Recognized At Lubin School Of Business’ 2nd Annual Pacesetters In Financial Reporting Conference

Microsoft Recognized as 2017 Pacesetter in Financial Reporting

NEW YORK – NOVEMBER 28, 2017 – The Lubin School of Business at Pace University held its 2nd annual Pacesetters in Financial Reporting Conference today, designed to acknowledge companies that are striving to better meet the needs of today’s investors and to encourage ongoing enhancements in corporate reporting. The conference was hosted by Pace’s Center for Excellence in Financial Reporting, in association with Financial Executives International (FEI) and EY.

Microsoft was named the 2017 Pacesetter in Financial Reporting, in recognition of its leadership in early adopting the new revenue recognition and leasing accounting standards, as well as their proactive approach to educating investors and sharing insights with others. Most public companies are required to adopt the new revenue recognition standard in 2018 and the new leasing standard in 2019.

“U.S. companies are poised to adopt several significant changes in accounting in the next few years, starting with the new revenue standard in 2018,” said Leslie F. Seidman, Executive Director of the Pace Center for Excellence in Financial Reporting and former Chairman of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB). “Today, we learned from the real-world experience of early-adopter Microsoft, with emphasis on how they educated analysts and investors about the effects of the new revenue standard on their financials. The CFA Institute also shared some tips about how to communicate effectively with investors during this period of change.”

“Microsoft adopted the new revenue and leasing standards early to simplify communication of our results by providing one set of restated financial statements to investors and eliminating the need for non-GAAP revenue reporting,” said Frank Brod, Chief Accounting Officer at Microsoft. “The upfront education that we provided our analyst and investor community resulted in a smooth transition to the new standards in the first quarter of our fiscal year 2018. We are honored to be recognized for this work.”

FEI’s Accounting Policy Group shared the results of their updated analysis of corporate disclosures related to the anticipated impact of the change in revenue recognition guidance. The three quarter 2017 trend information shows that companies are continuing to expand their disclosure of the anticipated impact of adopting the new revenue standard. However, as of Q3 2017, only 14% of the Fortune 500 had quantified this impact in their disclosures, and over half of those companies disclosed that the anticipated impact would be immaterial to their financial statements. The complete Professional Accounting Update, which includes insights by industry, is available at www.financialexecutives.org/2017RevRecDisclosures.

In recent years, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the FASB have undertaken Disclosure Effectiveness initiatives, and have been reconsidering existing requirements, such as Regulation S-K and S-X. At the same time, SEC officials and others have encouraged companies to enhance their financial reports, with particular focus on risk disclosures. “Risk factors are often criticized as being generic and boilerplate,” said Jonathan Nus, Executive Director, EY, who shared a recent EY study on risk disclosures. “However, a growing number of companies are taking a more insightful and innovative approach in disclosing their risks. This has become increasingly more pertinent as emerging risks such as cybersecurity remain front and center.” The report is available at www.EY.com/disclosures.

Chris Taylor, VP of Listings and Services at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), provided commentary about the state of the markets and the importance of transparent and accessible information. “There is a renewed sense of optimism in the capital markets as more companies from around the world turn to the U.S. to IPO,” said Chris Taylor, VP of Listings and Services at NYSE. “We are advocating on behalf of private and public companies in support of improved disclosure standards and increased accessibility of relevant data to investors, which will ease the path to going public, while also increasing transparency to make investor relations a less daunting task for public companies.”

“Today, we heard from a number of industry leaders who have taken the initiative to enhance their financial reports by focusing on the simplification of disclosures and on critical information such as the anticipated effects of accounting change. These companies recognize the importance of telling their story as effectively as possible to inform shareholders and the investor community,” said Andrej Suskavcevic, CAE, President and CEO of FEI. “FEI will continue to support, analyze and share information to further this important initiative.”

Hospitality, Meet Culinary: Pace University and International Culinary Center Get Business Students in the Kitchen

03/29/2016

Hospitality, Meet Culinary: Pace University and International Culinary Center Get Business Students in the Kitchen

New York, NY – March 29, 2016 – Pace University and the International Culinary Center (ICC) today announced they have entered into an agreement combining education in ICC’s Professional Culinary Arts program with the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program in Management – Hospitality and Tourism Management (HTM) concentration offered by Pace’s Lubin School of Business.

“Pace’s new collaboration with the International Culinary Center provides exciting new opportunities for students to prepare for work in the food service industry,” said Neil S. Braun, Dean of the Lubin School of Business at Pace University. “Lubin’s HTM and ICC’s Professional Culinary Arts program is a potent combination that will give a competitive edge to students interested in launching a career in this industry.”

Graduates of the ICC Professional Culinary Arts program who earn a minimum final overall grade point average of 85% will be able to transfer 15 credits towards the Pace BBA Management major in Hospitality and Tourism Management. ICC will grant students of the Pace BBA HTM priority admission and a partial scholarship to the ICC program.

“We are excited to add a new dimension to the outstanding education students receive at Pace University with our Total Immersion culinary arts education,” said Erik Murnighan, President of ICC in New York. “Students can learn the fundamental techniques of professional cooking—a hands-on experience that will give them a valuable perspective in hospitality and tourism management.”

ICC graduates must complete 50% of the credits required for the HTM concentration and 50% of the total business credits required for Pace’s BBA degree. They may transfer to Pace additional transfer credits earned at other academic institutions subject to Pace’s transfer credit policy.

ICC credits transferred are based upon completion of Culinary Arts—a 6-month program by day, 9 months with a night schedule, including a paid externship arranged with the school’s Career Services advisors.

Lubin's Hospitality and Tourism Management concentration is the only AACSB-accredited program in the New York City area, focusing on management unlike other programs that emphasize technical skills. The Lubin program prepares students to rise to leadership positions in tourism, hotel and restaurant management, and event planning and management. ICC’s award-winning education is accredited by ACCSC and is rooted in technique—more than 250 in the Professional Culinary arts curriculum created by legendary chef and longtime ICC dean Jacques Pepin.

Both schools’ programs prepare students to rise to leadership positions—for Pace, in tourism, hotel and restaurant management, event planning and management; for ICC, in kitchens, corporations and entrepreneurial companies.

Each transfer student from ICC will be assigned a professional Lubin School staff advisor, as well as a faculty advisor in the HTM program to guide them in charting a comprehensive academic plan allowing for graduation in the shortest time possible.

Pace HTM major Jaeseo (James) Park is among the first students to apply for the ICC program. “This amazing opportunity means everything to me and it will truly be one of the best parts of my Pace experience. Pace has given me all the connections and knowledge to succeed in my career already, and I have been wanting to go to culinary school at ICC for years.”

About International Culinary Center: Founded as The French Culinary Institute in 1984, the International Culinary Center (ICC) is a global leader in professional culinary, pastry and wine education, with schools in NYC, Silicon Valley and Italy. Graduates of ICC’s award-winning fast-track programs include entrepreneurs such as Bobby Flay, David Chang, Wylie Dufresne, Christina Tosi and 15,000 more under legendary deans including Jacques Pepin and Jacques Torres. In just months, students gain the credentials, confidence and connections to chart a rising culinary career. http://www.internationalculinarycenter.com

Pace University’s Lubin School of Business Maintains Prestigious Dual AACSB Accreditation for both Business and Accounting

02/17/2016

Pace University’s Lubin School of Business Maintains Prestigious Dual AACSB Accreditation for both Business and Accounting

(NY, NY) (February 16, 2016)—The Lubin School of Business at Pace University has successfully maintained its dual accreditation for both business and accounting by AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Fewer than 2% of business schools worldwide have this elite dual accreditation for both business and accounting. Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master's, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.

AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business and accounting education, and has been earned by less than five percent of the world's business programs. Today, there are 755 business schools in 51 countries and territories that maintain AACSB accreditation. Similarly, 182 institutions maintain an additional specialized AACSB accreditation for their accounting programs.

Achieving accreditation is a process of rigorous internal review, engagement with an AACSB assigned mentor, and peer review. During this multi-year process schools focus on developing and implementing a plan to align with AACSB’s accreditation standards. These standards require excellence in areas relating to strategic management and innovation; student, faculty, and staff as active participants; learning and teaching; and academic and professional engagement.

To realize accounting accreditation, an institution must first earn AACSB business accreditation. Then, in addition to developing and implementing a mission-driven plan to satisfy the business accreditation quality standards, accounting accreditation requires the satisfaction of an additional set of standards that are specific to the profession of accounting.

“AACSB congratulates Pace University for completing the multi-year continuous improvement review process, and for successfully maintaining their dual accreditation in both business and accounting,” said Robert D. Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. “The Lubin School of Business has embraced and embodied engagement, innovation, and impact as the foundation for their accreditation and continuous improvement efforts. We congratulate the leadership, faculty, and staff for this important dual accomplishment.”

Pace University has a rich history of excellence in business education and was founded as a school of accountancy in 1906. With a strong focus on experiential learning and one of the largest internship placement programs in the New York metropolitan area, Lubin’s job placement overall is 90%. “We are delighted that the AACSB Peer Review Team were highly complimentary about our progress toward continuous improvement over the last five years,” said Lubin’s Dean Neil Braun. “The focus on career preparation for our students, the collegiality and engagement of faculty, and the inclusiveness and integration of our very diverse student population, were cited as exemplary.”

PACE UNIVERSITY ANNOUNCES $2 MILLION GIFT FROM CBS CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER JOSEPH IANNIELLO

04/27/2015

Pace University Announces $2 Million Gift from CBS Chief Operating Officer Joseph Ianniello

Ianniello Field House Will Become Flagship of Pace University Athletics and Key Component of Pace’s “Campaign for Pleasantville”

PLEASANTVILLE – Pace University announced today that Joseph Ianniello, the CBS Corporation’s Chief Operating Officer and a member of the Pace University Board of Trustees, has made a $2 million commitment for the construction of a new athletics field house at the university’s campus in Pleasantville. When completed later this year, the Ianniello Field House will be the flagship of Pace University Athletics. Ianniello’s contribution is a part of the university’s Campaign for Pleasantville, an effort to transform and revitalize the 200-acre campus that also includes new residential facilities, an expanded student center and a new environmental center.

“Through our ‘Campaign for Pleasantville,’ we are enhancing the student experience at Pace and this gift will have a tremendous impact on the daily lives of our student-athletes and the entire Pace community,” said Pace University President Stephen J. Friedman. “A former football player, a Lubin School graduate and the newest member of the university’s Board of Trustees, Joe’s very generous gift sets a terrific example for others who have leveraged their Pace education into fulfilling careers and are now in a position to give back to their alma mater. On behalf of Pace University, we thank Joe for this and all the ways he supports the Pace community.”

“Pace University provides high-quality education with a strong focus on the kind of experiential learning that is invaluable in today’s business world and I am honored to be able to give back to my alma mater in this way,” said CBS Chief Operating Officer Joseph Ianniello.

The Ianniello Field House will be one of the most heavily-trafficked buildings on campus, with 25,000 expected visitors per year. Spectators and visitors will travel through the field house to enter the outdoor athletic complex, and all of Pace athletes and coaches will use this facility for practice, conditioning, and gatherings. The 14,010 sq. ft. facility will include new strength and conditioning facilities and a sports medicine component.

Joseph Ianniello earned a Bachelor’s of Business Administration at Pace and was a member of the university’s football team and the Alpha Chi Epsilon fraternity on campus. He frequently mentors Pace students; he recently returned to Pace’s Lubin School of Business to share career and industry advice with Pace students.

As Chief Operating Officer for CBS Corporation, Ianniello works closely with Chief Executive Officer Leslie Moonves to establish and execute strategy across all of the Corporation’s businesses, including CBS Television Network, The CW (a joint venture between CBS Corporation and Warner Bros. Entertainment), CBS Television Studios, CBS Global Distribution Group (CBS Studios International and CBS Television Distribution), CBS Consumer Products, CBS Home Entertainment, CBS Interactive, CBS Films, Showtime Networks, CBS Sports Network, Pop (a joint venture between CBS Corporation and Lionsgate), Smithsonian Networks, Simon & Schuster, CBS Television Stations, CBS Radio and CBS EcoMedia.

Ianniello oversees the monetization of the Company’s content across platforms, including retransmission consent fees and reverse compensation from affiliates, as well as the licensing of CBS content for digital streaming and broadband services. He also manages all financial operations of CBS Corporation, which is comprised of corporate development (including mergers and acquisitions), treasury, risk management, worldwide tax and information technology and other areas.

Ianniello was also instrumental in the process of separating CBS from Viacom at the end of 2005. Since then, he has been a key part of the management team that has led CBS to be the #1 media stock among its peers for three of the last five years. He recently guided the Company through the conversion of CBS Outdoor into a real-estate investment trust, marking a first for an outdoor advertising business and ultimately leading to the split-off of CBS Outdoor from CBS in 2014.

Before he was named Chief Operating Officer, Ianniello served as CBS’s Chief Financial Officer (2009-2013) and Deputy Chief Financial Officer (2008-2009), where he was responsible for the Company’s financial strategy across all of its operations. Ianniello also served as Senior Vice President, Chief Development Officer and Treasurer (2006-2008).

Prior to CBS’s separation from Viacom Inc., Ianniello held a variety of financial positions with the Company, including Senior Vice President and Treasurer (2005) and Vice President of Corporate Development (2000-2005), among others. Before joining CBS, Ianniello spent seven years with KPMG in various capacities.

In 2013 and 2014, Ianniello was ranked the #1 chief financial officer by sell-side analysts in Institutional Investor’s annual All-America Executive Team survey. Ianniello serves on the Board of Directors of New Alternatives for Children, Inc., as well as Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE).

About Pace University: Since 1906, Pace University has educated thinking professionals by providing high quality education for the professions on a firm base of liberal learning amid the advantages of the New York metropolitan area.
