Dodging the Question

The Financial Times said that you’re the perfect dean for N.Y.U.’s Stern School of Business because M.B.A. students are “clamoring” for coursework to help in “reducing world poverty.” I thought people got M.B.A.’s to make themselves boatloads of money.
You can actually make a lot of money and do a lot of good in the world. I don’t see those things as being in opposition to one another. I never have.

Then can you name a Stern graduate who is making a ton of money and also saving the world?
With 90,000 alums, I won’t point to any one person. I love all my children equally.

Oh, but I wish you would point to one person (or more than one person!) Peter Henry, dean of N.Y.U.’s Stern School of Business (we like specifics). You have to admire his idealism, though.
