NYU Stern Launches Course on the Financial Crisis Causes and Remedies

NYU Stern MBA students have been able to immediately benefit from the scholarly work of the Stern faculty co-authors of the book, “Restoring Financial Stability: How to Repair a Failed System,” through a five-lecture course based on the book’s contents and taught by a dozen of the faculty authors. Students who took the course, oversubscribed minutes after it was offered, learned first-hand from academic and industry experts about the reasons why the crisis began and policy recommendations that may help reform the financial system.
