Graduation Class: 2018

What I loved the most about the HRD program is that I could transfer my knowledge from the theories seen in class, to real life projects - it is a practical-oriented program. This has contributed to the achievement of my goals and the enhancement of my career. None of this could have happened without the thorough supervision of my professors, as well as their expertise.
