Let’s explore some of the most interesting stories that have emerged from New York City business schools this week.
NJ Monthly Mag Highlights Rutgers EMBA Doctors – Rutgers Business Blog
According to stats released by Rutgers Business School, it’s not uncommon to find between 1-5 doctors in a typical EMBA class. This is largely due to the new reality of the medical profession, which has increasingly required that doctors “transition from medical practice to running hospitals, managing hospital finances, heading-up HMOs, working for pharmaceutical companies and becoming Chief Medical Officers.”
Three Rutgers Emba Doctors made New Jersey Monthly Magazine’s annual “Top Doctors” list:
- Clifford Sales, a vascular surgery specialist at Overlook Medical Center
- Eric Seaman, a male infertility specialist at the Urology Group of New Jersey
- Jacqueline Williams-Phillips, the medical director of the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick and associate professor of Pediatrics at UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.

Patagonia Exec Talks ‘Fast Fashion,’ Fair Trade, and What It Means to Be A Responsible Company – Gabelli Connect
The Gabelli School of Business‘ Center for Humanistic Management recently hosted a guest lecture from Vincent Stanley, the Patagonia director of philosophy, in which he talked about how corporate responsibility has directly shaped the company’s business.
“One of our big concerns is how we look at the challenges of the planet and ensure that our company is not contributing to those challenges and instead contributing to the solutions. Nature is not just where we go to play. The health of our natural systems underlines all of our social and industrial systems, even in this tiny little town where we were based.”

Can Stevens Students Create a Cryptocurrency Exchange? Bank on It – Stevens Institute of Technology SOB Blog
A team of Stevens Institute of Technology School of Business seniors recently announced its plans to unveil Coin Complex, a cryptocurrency exchange designed to address and improve upon the limitations of the current trading options, at the May 2 Innovation Expo. George Engroff, a senior finance major who recently completed a summer internship with Credit Suisse, elaborates: “The exchanges I was using were completely inadequate—none of them gave you a good understanding of the market and your portfolio. So I thought, here at Stevens, we have a lot of smart people and innovators—I’m sure we could make a better exchange than what’s out there.”
