MSc Human Resource Management
What first inspired you to come to Loughborough University?
I was looking at a University fulfilling 3 criteria’s: Top 10 in the UK, Outstanding facilities, Triple accredited course framework. Loughborough ticked all the boxes. Also, the campus played a major role in choosing Loughborough.
What has been your favourite memory from your time at Loughborough?
Meeting new people, trying new things which I have never done before, spending countless nights together with my friends.
What have you enjoyed most about your course?
The modules were practical and interesting. My favourite part of the course was the coursework. It is totally different to the ones in India. I had a steep learning curve in the beginning. But, gradually got better at it.
What are your next steps after graduating?
I have my own business back in India. Coming back to business after a year abroad gives you new ideas to bounce about. The learning from the modules will help me find proper solutions to the problems present here.
What are you career aspirations and how to you feel your course has prepared you to fulfil these?
My career aspiration is to develop an organisation that is ‘human friendly’ and in the meantime become successful at it too. I am sure this course has given me a basic idea of how to go about it.
How do you feel you’ve developed your employability at Loughborough?
There were several workshops presented by the careers network which helped in improving my employability.
Tell us more about the CIPD award you received recently
CIPD is necessary for every HR professional in the UK. I attended one of their seminars which really showcased their ability to bring in together, people across different fields. Our course is CIPD accredited and it is really heartening that CIPD chose to acknowledge me for a particular qualification.
What would you say to someone considering your course?
To someone considering this course, I would definitely recommend it. The course is well structured, and it gives you an overall understanding about the concepts of Human Resource Management.
Has Loughborough inspired you?
Loughborough has inspired me in a lot of ways. Firstly, giving me an international exposure. Secondly, a hands-on experience especially in the Employment Law module where we visited employment tribunals and sat through a live court hearing. Finally, meeting all the people that have inspired me to do great things and get better every day.
