WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – Eighty-seven children whose parents are enrolled in Pace
University’s CLOUT Program will be ready for school in September – outfitted
in new clothes and carrying new school supplies – thanks to the generosity of
local Westchester County businesses. The Pace University School of Computer
Science and Information Systems’ CLOUT Program will sponsor two receptions on
September 2 and 7, from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m., at the Lubin Graduate Center, 1 Martine

For the sixth consecutive year, the children of adult students attending Pace

Foods, Bernard Harris Publishing, MCS Canon, Transamerica Inc., and BDO Seidman
LOP, purchased the items.

CLOUT offers a certificate in personal computer applications for the office
professional. CLOUT also offers an associate degree in office technology
sponsored by Westchester County’s “Employment Plan for Welfare to Work,” which
provides funding for up to two years of post-secondary education.

CLOUT was formed in 1991 by Pace University’s School of Computer Science and
Information Systems, with the support of Westchester County’s Department of
Social Services, for qualified single parents receiving public assistance who
are seeking full-time employment and financial independence. CLOUT offers
qualified single parents the chance to learn about computing. The Department
of Social Services and the Westchester County’s Office of Employment and
Training refer unemployed recipients and displaced workers for participation
in the CLOUT program.

NEW YORK-Pace University’s Lubin School of Business will offer an online MBA
program that combines Internet-based learning with residencies for experienced
managers. This unique 24-month program is called e.MBA@Pace (pronounced
“e dot MBA at Pace”) and will be based on several large-scale projects and a
series of management skill modules. The first e.MBA class will begin in
January, 2000.

The e.MBA@Pace program assigns projects, based on contemporary business
issues, to student teams. Team projects present student teams with complex
business problems that invite cross-disciplinary approaches for solution.
Examples of possible team projects include:

· Decide, as a manager of an American-based multinational, where to
locate new call centers to handle global call traffic.

· Develop a marketing plan for the expansion of a low-cost air
carrier into the NYC metropolitan area.

· Create a business plan to attract venture capital for a newly
developed, hand-held computing device that combines voice, e-mail,
fax, and data-base applications.

According to Lubin School Dean Arthur L. Centonze, the innovative new
educational structure adds to Pace University’s well-known full-time
and part-time graduate MBA programs, accredited by the AACSB, the
International Association for Management Education. Based on initial
inquiries, Lubin expects a significant demand for e.MBA@Pace among busy
executives and professionals who live a long distance from Pace’s
campuses or who travel extensively for business.

“Students will master traditional business tools, both qualitative and
quantitative, on a ‘need to know’ or ‘just in time’ basis,” said John
Dory, professor of management. “This approach to education, called
‘action learning’ or ‘outcome-based learning,’ has been highly effective
in complex business problem-solving situations.”

The students will also attend a series of 10 residencies at Pace
facilities during the 24 month degree program. The residencies will
allow for the presentation of project results, give program participants
time to work with faculty on individual assignments and enable faculty
to administer examinations. These face-to-face sessions will include
workshops on various management skills. Professor Dory notes that
candidates for the e.MBA@Pace program will have several years of
professional experience and a commitment to an innovative approach to
graduate business education. “To fluorish in the program, students must
be self-motivated, able to work independently and comfortable using the
Internet.”

NEW YORK–Pace University will honor Edward D. Miller, President and CEO of the
Equitable Companies and Chairman and CEO of its subsidiary, the Equitable Life
Assurance Society of the United States, at the 1999 Leaders in Management Award
Dinner to be held May 12 in the Grand Ballroom of New York City’s Plaza Hotel.
Miller, a member of the Pace University Board of Trustees, will also receive an
honorary Doctor of Commercial Science degree from the University during the
evening.

The Leaders in Management Award is presented to prominent members of the business
community to celebrate their personal and professional accomplishments.
Particular emphasis is placed on those leaders who enhance the economic, civic
and cultural life in New York and the world. The Award serves as a powerful symbol
of excellence for Pace University students and the dinner highlights the many
partnerships between Pace and the corporate community.

Miller, a Pace alumnus (1968), is a recognized leader in consumer financial
services and technological innovation, as well as a devoted humanitarian. Miller
currently serves as chairman of the Tri-State United Way Campaign and has
volunteered in several capacities with the New York Blood Center and Phoenix
House. “Ed Miller is not only a distinguished and successful member of the
corporate community, he is a valued alumnus of Pace who shares his time and
talent generously with us as a member of the Board of Trustees,” said President
Patricia O. Ewers. Ewers continues, “Ed is the ideal model of someone who has
put a Pace education to good use to strengthen and enhance the economic, civic and
philanthropic life of the community.”

Miller possesses 35 years of finance and banking experience. As the Senior
Executive Vice President of the AXA Group, Equitable’s majority shareholder,
Miller managed the organization’s global information technology development. While
serving as Vice Chairman of Manufacturer’s Hanover Trust, Miller successfully
directed two of the largest financial services combinations in history – the
mergers of The Chase Manhattan Corporation and Chemical Bank, and of Chemical
Bank with Manufacturers Hanover Trust. He serves on the boards of The Equitable
Companies and Equitable Life Alliance Capital Management and Donaldson and Lufkin
& Jenrette, two Equitable subsidiaries.

The Leaders in Management Award Dinner is Pace’s most prominent annual fund-raising
event. The Dinner was initiated in 1962 by the Pace University Executive Council
to highlight the corporate community’s support and encouragement of the University.
Proceeds will be applied to the $55 million Campaign for Pace University.
Past recipients of the Award include Thomas Hays, Fortune Brands; Eugene R. McGrath,

Success is a Two-Way Street: Learn from Entrepreneurs at Pace University

Successful entrepreneur, Charles E. Ramsey, is “giving back” by
returning to the classroom to teach Lubin School of Business students
how to determine if they’ve got what it takes to be an entrepreneur in
the high-tech arena. According to Ramsey, it’s all about attitude.

NEW YORK-Successful entrepreneur, Charles E. Ramsey, is “giving back” by
returning to the classroom to teach Lubin School of Business students
how to determine if they’ve got what it takes to be an entrepreneur in
the high-tech arena. According to Ramsey, it’s all about attitude.

Ramsey co-founded Ramsey/Beirne, an executive search firm that focuses
on one industry– information technology (including software, hardware,
the Internet, networking) and conducts searches for senior managers only,
in 1987. The firm’s focus, drive and energetic staff have made it the
industry leader within the competitive niche of information technology
recruiting. The Ramsey/Beirne client list represents the best known
firms in high tech, including Novell, Dell, eBay, Excite, E*Trade and
Netscape.

Pace University’s Lubin School of Business launched its “Entrepreneur
in Residence” program in September 1998, to provide entrepreneurs-to-be
the chance to interact and learn from successful self-starters. The
program features individuals who have created, financed and managed new
business ventures. Three guest entrepreneurs per academic year visit
Lubin and share their knowledge with students and faculty.

Ramsey will interact with students on Pace University’s Pleasantville
and White Plains campuses. Based on his first-hand experience in growing
a company from the ground up, Ramsey will discuss what students need to
know to become an entrepreneur and how they can start a business in the
field of information technology.

Super Bowl Sums Surge in 1999: What Companies Need to Know About Advertising in Super Bowl XXXIII

Forget the locker rooms and put away the helmets, practicing for Super Bowl XXXIII means brainstorming, budgeting and strategizing for companies who want to score big. Spending up to $1.6 million for a 30-second spot, companies expend significant time preparing for the big game. How do advertisers score a touchdown? Do the millions of dollars ensure a win? According to David Shani, adjunct professor of marketing at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business, “When a company spends money to introduce a new advertising campaign during the Super Bowl, it receives up to two months of coverage. The company’s exposure is not limited to the telecast. There are numerous other opportunities for free publicity. The media analyzes and assesses new, innovative and highly expensive advertising campaigns for months before and after January.”

NEW YORK-Forget the locker rooms and put away the helmets, practicing for
Super Bowl XXXIII means brainstorming, budgeting and strategizing for
companies who want to score big. Spending up to $1.6 million for a
30-second spot, companies expend significant time preparing for the big
game. How do advertisers score a touchdown? Do the millions of dollars
ensure a win? According to David Shani, adjunct professor of marketing
at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business, “When a company spends
money to introduce a new advertising campaign during the Super Bowl,
it receives up to two months of coverage. The company’s exposure is
not limited to the telecast. There are numerous other opportunities
for free publicity. The media analyzes and assesses new, innovative
and highly expensive advertising campaigns for months before and
after January.”

David Shani and Dennis Sandler, associate professor of marketing at
Pace, have analyzed several Super Bowl and Olympics games to assess
successful advertising techniques and strategies employed during
high-prestige events. They found that in order to tackle the
competitors during the Super Bowl, companies need to be aware of
the following:

· Women watch the Super Bowl too. Nearly half of 1998’s viewers
were female, yet most of the ads are still overwhelmingly geared
towards men. Advertisers miss a huge opportunity by neglecting
this lucrative market.

· Super Bowl Sunday is a big party. People watch the game in
groups, not alone. Advertisers should develop new expressions
and creative ways to reach groups. The “Bud Bowl” was a good
example of how to do this-viewers got involved in the score and
were provided a topic for discussion.

· Link your website to a Super Bowl site. Using what Sandler
and Shani call “ambush marketing,” companies can link their
websites to Super Bowl related sites, associate themselves with
the event, and gain some of the exposure.

· Don’t spend your entire advertising budget for one 30 second
spot. Advertising during the Super Bowl is risky for small
companies. Some small businesses spend their entire year’s
budget for one spot during this event. The efficacy of this
strategy is highly questionable.

· Viewers tend to remember funny things-make your commercials
humorous!

WHITE PLAINS, NY – Online holiday sales surpassed all expectations and point
to a major shift in consumer buying power. In order to retain these millions
of new customers and develop consumer loyalty, John Hooks, professor of
computer science at Pace University, recommends that e-businesses emphasize
a basic tenet of business success: customer service. In order to overcome
the impersonal nature of an electronic storefront, Hooks suggests the
following:

· Set up a toll-free number so that customers can call with questions or
orders.

· Keep in mind that an on-line retail operation has the potential to
receive orders and inquiries 24 hours a day. Make sure customer service
hours are clearly posted on your website.

· If you know you are experiencing a time lag or if you are out of
inventory for a particular item indicate this to your online customer
via e-mail as soon as possible. Nothing frustrates a buyer more than
the lack of timely information regarding their order.

· Follow up the transaction with an e-mail or phone call thanking
the customer for their business. Buyers will flock to an e-merchant
that possesses an attitude of gratitude!

The New York Health Care Reform Act (NYHCRA) went into effect in January 1997, replacing
the New York Prospective Hospital Reimbursement Methodology (NYPHRM). The intent of NYHCRA
was to move New York’s health care industry toward a more competitive, market-driven system
of negotiated rates by making fundamental changes in the reimbursement regulations; a revolution,
it was predicted, in health care financing.

Now, nearly two years after its enactment, it is time to examine the impact of NYHCRA on the
health care industry. How has NYHCRA affected the operations of hospitals and managed care
organizations? Have the objectives of New York state been achieved? What does the future hold?
How does the business community view the impact?

These questions will be examined by a panel of experts representing hospitals, managed care, state
government and business, in a format of individual presentations, panel discussion and audience Q&A.
Speakers include Deborah Konopko, first assistant counsel to the governor; Mark Van Guysling, assistant
director, Division of Health Care Financing, NYS Department of Health; Arthur E. Weintraub, president,
Northern Metropolitan Hospital Association; Kathryn Allen, immediate past president, HMO Council and
Conference of New York; and Elliott Shaw, director of government affairs, NYS Business Council. Serving
as moderator will be Prof. Bernard M. Weinstein, director of the Center for Health Policy Education and Research.

The conference is co-sponsored with the Northern Metropolitan Hospital Association and the New York Society
for Health Planning.

The Center for Health Policy Education and Research was founded in 1996 by the Dyson College of Arts and Sciences’
Department of Public Administration in order to advance health care policy education and research activities at
Pace University, and to assist health care providers in the Greater New York area in meeting the demands of the community.

Pace is a comprehensive, independent University with campuses in New York City, and Westchester County. Nearly 14,000
students are enrolled in undergraduate and graduate degree programs in the Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, Lubin School
