M.S. in Human Resource Management and Development
Alumna, Class of 2008
A native of China, Xiang Cui enrolled in the M.S. in Human Resource Management and Development program at the NYU School of Professional Studies in hopes of pursuing a career that "would combine my experience as an educator with my experience in cross-cultural communication."
Xiang served as a keynote speaker along with Dennis Garritan, director of the program, presenting a new "Global Talent Management Model" for training human resource managers, at a conference held at Renmin University in Beijing, China in November 2008. Xiang, who completed her graduate degree in 2008, worked closely with Garritan on the presentation as well as translating and delivering it in Mandarin. Before the conference ended, Xiang had received two job offers. When asked about her experience with the faculty and students at the NYU School of Professional Studies, Xiang says, "They’re a treasure. Very smart, passionate, and devoted."
