Messages from Alumni

In the current VUCA world, all HR professionals need to be agile in their approach to learning and sensitive to the changing environment. By providing a comprehensive and extensive curriculum, this programme enabled us to upskill and reskill ourselves. It equipped us not only with HR knowledge, but also with a business mindset while strengthening our strategic thinking towards crisis and change. The programme continually reviewed new knowledge, helping us to stay up-to-date with the latest HR trends. In a hybrid teaching environment, the effort that the professors put into different case studies, discussions, and reflections inspired new insights and developed our core role as change agents. It was also a good platform for meeting classmates from different backgrounds to share ideas and experiences, thus generating new ways of thinking. To me, learning is a lifelong journey. This programme was definitely a milestone in enhancing myself as an HR professional.

This programme provided me not only with knowledge about professional human resource management and a blueprint of how businesses run in the real world, it also equipped me with valuable soft skills to better handle problems at work and in life.


Specifically, attending well-designed lectures by diverse lecturers – some with an academic background and some with an industry background – enhanced my theoretical background and helped me integrate theory and real-world practice. Guided by first-class scholars and professionals, I learned to think critically and differently. Completing multiple group assignments with my peers dramatically improved my leadership skills, my communication style, my time and project management skills, and my problem-solving strategies. Last but probably most important, doing a research project with my supervisor Dr Seunghoo Chung turned me into a lifelong learner and provided me with more opportunities and possibilities for the future.


At the end of the day, how we think about the world is how we excel and distinguish ourselves from others. This programme shaped us in this way, which made it the most valuable investment of my life.

Greetings! I'm Jan, and I've recently completed my part-time MSc in Human Resource Management at Hong Kong Polytechnic University. With a background in Administration, HR, and event management, I entered this journey with a determination to contribute, particularly amidst the challenges of COVID-19. The transition from face-to-face to online classes was seamless, thanks to our dedicated lecturers' support. Virtual learning, with interactive tools like polls and breakout sessions, proved surprisingly engaging.


This program's adaptability and the insights from guest speakers were exceptional. Networking opportunities with industry leaders and valuable electives like negotiation and mediation enriched not just my work life, but my daily interactions. The coaching program was a standout, providing deep insights into workplace behaviors and tendencies. Guided by a skilled coach, I honed a more critical professional approach, reminding me to stay aware of potential blind spots.


Reflecting on this study experience, I've discovered a passion for people-centric approaches and the vital role of culture in organizations. Post-COVID, I'm eager to foster positive corporate cultures prioritizing employee well-being. My heartfelt thanks go to lecturers, coaches, and classmates for making this journey so memorable. Together, we've formed enduring connections and shared invaluable lessons.
