For their 2010 report, the organization was assisted by Donald Schepers, Baruch College Department of Management Professor and Academic Director of The Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity, in analyzing data on local networks that have been established to spread the Global Compact message in their communities and countries. The full report, with acknowledgment for Professor Schepers' contributions, can be viewed here.

Pathways Within Accountancy: Baruch Alumnus Stan Ross Is Your Guide

cover
Careers in Accounting, written by Stan Ross ’56, LLD (Hon.) ’99, and James Carberry and published by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) provides those considering entering the profession with an overview of the many niches accountants can fill in both the private and public sectors. The book includes short essays by half a dozen members of Baruch College's Stan Ross Department of Accountancy, including Dean John Elliott, Douglas Carmichael, Joseph Weintrop, Masako Darrough, Marilyn Neimark, Igor Vaysman and others.

According to labor market analysts, accountants are in short supply and the number of jobs available will increase as Wall Street comes to terms with recently enacted government regulations. Careers in Accounting devotes individual chapters to public, corporate, non-profit and government Accounting as well as to Certification, Careers in Teaching and Finding that First Job. The book is accessible, with illustrative graphics and an easy-to-read format. It may be ordered from the AICPA store at www.aicpa.org.

As part of this effort, Reaching Out MBA runs an annual case writing competition to exemplify quality business cases that address contemporary Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender issues with sensitivity and sensibility. Pliner and MacKrell's case, which is based on the fictional Domestic Arcade, Inc., will be published by the European Case Clearing House (ECCH) later this summer.
