MS in Management and Systems “Faculty Webinar Series” Connects With Incoming Students

The NYU School of Professional Studies (NYUSPS), Division of Programs in Business continues to provide value-driven points of contact for potential and incoming students during this unprecedented time. The MS in Management and Systems (MASY) Faculty Webinar Series inaugural event took place on August 12, 2020, and focused on the very important and timely topic of “The Ethics of Data Privacy and Data Control.” Moderated by Negar Farakish, EdD, executive director of Academic Affairs, the event featured adjunct faculty member and MASY alumnus, Joseph Ng, who offered his insights on the topic. Relying on his role as the head of Enterprise Data Science Delivery at BNY Mellon Bank and his industry expertise as a data science/database management professional with over 20 years of experience, Ng defined data privacy with respect to Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and Protected Health Information (PHI). He underscored the importance of data democratization amid the Covid-19 pandemic and discussed its effects and consequences. He highlighted the great need for very stringent controls in place to help the public feel comfortable with any data being released.

Having launched in Fall 2015, the MASY program, which also is a STEM- designated program, has grown exponentially, and currently serves over 348 students. The program is primed to meet the needs of a diverse group of learners and prepare them for assuming leadership positions in the area of technology.

DPB is the largest division of NYU School of Professional Studies, with over 2,200 students, 500 faculty members, and 6,700 alumni. The Division comprises four centers of excellence that educate leaders in the functional areas of an enterprise. Each department’s credit and non-credit portfolio of educational offerings serves students at every level of their career, providing them with the knowledge and skills required to succeed in critical positions in their professional development.
