The MHRM program at York has allowed me to apply learnings into practical ways in my job as an HR executive. My peer's experiences allow me to really consider how others are applying the same in their own environments, broadening perspective and understanding. To top it off, the professors make the subjects interesting and really work to ensure that the practitioner points of views are considered.
