The course offerings in the Global Business Journalism program are constantly evolving to prepare students for the rapidly changing world of business journalism. The latest addition to the curriculum is Associate Professor Kai Kuang's new course on public speaking, first offered in the fall semester of 2021.


The new course is designed to help students who want to improve their verbal communication skills. English speaking skills are more important than ever for global journalists, who often are asked to create video or audio journalism reports. International journalists also need to learn how to express themselves clearly in readily understandable English.


Professor Kuang came to Tsinghua in 2020 after four years at Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania. She earned her Ph.D. in health communication at Purdue University, where she was a graduate lecturer in the Brian Lamb School of Communication from 2009 to 2015.


She won the Top Paper Award from the National Communication Association, Interpersonal Communication, in  2020. She received the Gerald R. Miller Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award at Purdue.
