Uber vs. Carnegie Mellon is positive for all

“My understanding by talking to the people there is the timing of this may not have been ideal but this really will continue to raise the profile of the institution,” Rosensweig said in an interview with CNBC’s “Closing Bell.” “You’re going to see an influx of students wanting to go to this school. You’re going to see an influx of professors wanted to be associated [with] it,” he said.

He also thinks Carnegie Mellon and Uber will be now working closer together, not further apart.
