M.S. in Human Resource Management and Development
Alumna, Class of 2009
When Rina Gaulyte Singh decided to continue her education, she considered business school, but didn’t want to pursue a solely academic experience. "I wanted a more practical education, I didn’t want to just learn concepts and theories," she says. That’s why she chose the M.S. in Human Resource Management and Development program at the NYU School of Professional Studies.
Professors were professionals in the field, and Singh was able to do "real work" even as a student. When school projects related to their professional work, students invited classmates to give presentations to their management teams. In one class, Singh researched the business culture and environment in emerging markets in Brazil, Russia, India, and China. She then presented her findings about cultural differences to professionals doing business in those countries. Singh won the Human Resource Industry Excellence Award and was class representative at graduation.
