  • Personnel Management (e.g., Leadership, Personnel, and Organizational Development)

I really enjoy the practice-orientated examples the lecturers tend to share. I am able to make a comparison with my Bachelor’s degree that had more theoretical orientation and was delivered mainly by academics. As a whole, it helped me to develop critical and scientific thinking, and now I am happily acquiring another degree with a different perspective that is exclusively relevant to my current profession and more practice-orientated.
