Big Data: Who Uses It? Who Provides It? And What Risks Does It Create?, speakers, Larry Zicklin (BBA ‘57), Roger Freeman, Neuberger Berman, and Sebastiano Manzan, Bert W. Wasserman Department of Economics and Finance
Businesses have the technology to capture billions of data items on a real-time basis – Big Data – but what are they actually doing with all this information? One application is the analysis of text in newspapers like the NY Times and the Wall Street Journal to gauge sentiment on the current state of the economy, so-called “Nowcasting.” Another is the use of financial data like credit card charges to better estimate firms’ revenues, with the potential for providing timely information to fundamental stock analysts. How well do applications like these really work? Are there other potential applications that might raise privacy and ethical issues? Larry Zicklin (BBA ‘57) discusses these questions with Roger Freeman, Co-Head of Data Science Team, at Neuberger Berman, and with Sebastiano Manzan, Associate Professor of Economics in the Zicklin School Department of Economics and Finance. With an introduction by Dean Fenwick Huss and a Q&A session moderated by Associate Dean Gwen Webb
12:15 PM – 1:45 PM
Delta Seminar: Investor response to the appointment of female CEOs – An international stakeholder perspective, speaker, Grazia Santengelo, Copenhagen Business School
The last Delta seminar of semester will feature Dr. Grazia Santangelo from Copenhagen Business School presenting research on firm international operations as a moderator of stock market reactions to female CEO appointments using data on 421 S&P 1500 firms. She and colleagues draw on research at the intersection of institutional theory and strategy to theorize that firms with larger operations in masculine-oriented countries face a negative market reaction to female CEO appointments. This is because the negative legitimacy judgment of stakeholders in these countries influences investor reaction. They also argue that these firms are less penalized by the market when they integrate the CEO appointment decision with high proactiveness toward diversity in the workplace than when they compensate this decision with low proactiveness. The proposed explanation is that stakeholders and investors value internal consistency over conformity because it makes firms credible and predictable. Presented by the Narendra P. Loomba Department of Management. For more information, contact Lauren Aydinliyim.
