“I am proud to be a part of Carrier Corporation Employee Scholarship Program which has provided me with an opportunity to complete my MSc in HR with SHRI. This is by far, one of the most rewarding experience I ever had.
The program have taught me to be a critical thinker and further honed my knowledge in HR through the interactions with the Professors both in person as well as via webinar sessions. The program is also well structured where it is tailored for working professionals in balancing family, work and travel commitments. The peer connections among the classmates will last a lifetime especially where I had the opportunity to interact with professionals with different HR backgrounds and experiences.”

The staff has been responsive and committed, catering to our needs and queries quickly. The lecturers and tutors for the course are very experienced and able to apply the theories into the current Human Resource trends and context.

The course also allows us to gain further insight into the future direction of HR, and how we can equip ourselves and our organisations to embrace the upcoming changes and disruptions.

“First of all, I would like to thank my teammates’ efforts through this whole journey (3 weeks) to complete the project by sacrificing weekends and holidays to meet tight deadline for Aug 13, 2019 submission. Three of us from different background or maybe culture, work experiences, and behaviours trying to complete the project and most importantly our unique character complement each other. This course helps us to understand and be able to analyse what is Compensation & Benefits all about. It benefits for those who wish to switch career path (like me) or already in the job but required adequate knowledge and skills to design and implement Compensation & Benefits in their organisation. Lastly, thanks to all the Lecturers who impart their skills & knowledge to us during these periods.”

This method really helps us a lot especially we are working adult because too dry learning will make us sleepy after long working hours in the day He created online class video and class topic online quiz in blog so that we can easily self-revision at home. He also treated us as a family/friend and make sure we understand the topic before he end his lesson.

The lecturers were dynamic and professional in their teachings.
Besides the subject materials, the sharings of their extensive personal experiences, giving relevant examples, patience in guiding and a pinch of sense of humour, I enjoyed the lessons and was able to understand them without much difficulties. The modules were interesting and this learning has changed my perspectives towards work and personal life.”

After obtaining my Postgraduate Diploma in HR and Reward Management qualification, I was equipped with the framework in understanding the fundamentals of Compensation & Benefits.
