My favorite part about the program is the networking amongst other colleagues and faculty and learning new perspectives and useful tools of Human Resource Management that I can use in my career. This program is enhancing the traditional HR analytics and strategies which has allowed for new interests and topics to be shared and discussed in the local SHRM communities. Social network analysis, people analytics, and human capital management are becoming the newest trio in strategic HR, and it’s our responsibility to make sure workplaces can analyze, understand and act on the growing data trend.
