April 10, 2013: Guest Speaker – Richard Foristel, Webster University China Programs Director, presented "Learning From Steve Jobs".
Mr. Foristel presented to an audience of one hundred students and several NYIT professors as part of the co-sponsored NYIT Center for Humanities and Culture at NUPT and School of Management Professional Enrichment Program this spring semester of 2013. His highly effective PowerPoint presentation on the life and career of Steve Jobs could not have been any more attractive to our students who are typically unwilling to forgo their lunches in the cafeteria during this hour. One pleased business major shared the following review of his talk in an email correspondence: “I think Professor Foristel’s speech was excellent because even [though] his theme is Steve Jobs, he not only talked about Steve, he also introduced us to [a] third CEO John Sculley who took office from 1983 to 1993. He emphasized the marketing skill of John Sculley that is very useful for our business students. Before his speech, I never knew about any talent except Steve Jobs in Apple.”

She gave an overview of U.S. university education with an emphasis on Economics and Business Administration. She emphasized the importance of writing papers and asking questions in the class. The confident, articulate, and enthusiastic manner in which she expressed herself inspired the students to ask questions actively.
March 27, 2013: Guest Speaker – Cynthia Davila, General Services Officer, U.S. Consulate General Shanghai, presented "Job Readiness and Job Hunting in the United States".
