MS in Management and Systems
Alumna, Class of 2009
After Janelle Curtis moved to New York from her native Guyana, she wanted to learn to use technology to improve her business management practices. The knowledge and the skills she acquired while earning her MS in Management and Systems at the NYU School of Professional Studies will help her in her current position as an assistant vice president at Citi, to improve management operations for the company across the globe.
Curtis graduated in 2009, winning the Management and Systems Best Thesis Award for research excellence and for producing an academic work with practical applications. Her thesis explored customer-relationship management in the financial sector in Guyana, and how local businesses can use customer relations to become more competitive. She someday hopes to use the knowledge she gained to improve business management and systems in her home country.
