"I had the unique privilege to enrol in the M.Sc. HRM programme at Trinity Business School. Trinity Business School is one of the most prestigious and globally recognised business schools in the world. The M.Sc. HRM programme offered me many opportunities to develop my intellectual knowledge on the corporate world.  My overall study experience at Trinity Business School was greatly influenced by how international the school's community is. I had the honour of meeting like-minded intellectual students from different countries who also strive to develop their academic knowledge. I noted that our class was a huge asset during seminars and discussions because of our diverse backgrounds. In addition, the university is seriously focused on helping students get where they want to go after they graduate. The career service is excellent, and if a student is interested in academia, all the professors are willing to help with giving advice on how to start an academic career. The highlight of the programme for me was to visit and network with international companies like Grant Thornton and Microsoft. Our course offers an opportunity for students to tour esteemed companies and work together in teams on company projects. We also gained first-hand knowledge from leading HR professionals on modern HR trends. The world is resilient. But so are Trinity students."
