Human Resources is a change agent in an organization. We work with the business leaders collaboratively and propose recommendation on business effectiveness based on our HR professional knowledge and understanding on the external changing market. The BBA (HRM) programme has not only provided me a comprehensive foundation on various business discipline but also equipped me with the crucial skills and social awareness in dealing with people from different levels and nationalities. My study here has indeed been a valuable starting point for my career and personal growth.
Kalinda Wong | Associate, People, National Australia Bank | BBAHRM Graduate
Business knowledge is undoubtedly crucial for a job in the business sector. I would say social communication skills are important for a successful career, especially when we have to work as a team. The BBA(IBJ) Programme (now SIM stream) provided me with professional knowledge and helped me develop a keen business sense. It also provided the chance to develop my interpersonal skills through a series of activities. I found that what I gained from the Department of Management is practical and relevant to my workplace.

If I had to do it again, I would definitely make the same decision and study in the Human Resources Management Program at City University of Hong Kong. It is not only the place where I learned to be an HR professional but also where I grew up. The Department of Management provides a dynamic undergraduate curriculum grounded in human resources management that is complemented with distinctive personal and career development programs. We learned how to be effective and efficient managers. In addition, I always felt that there was a friendly relationship among students and professors. I am thankful for the support and encouragement from our professors, lectures and other graduate students.
