Human Resource Management

RISEBA postgraduate programme “Human Resource Management” allows every practising HR manager to gain knowledge one needs the most. In my opinion, this is the biggest benefit of the programme. Discussions and practical training allow the students to find out various views on the same issue. It also proves how creative an HR manager’s profession is.
