"The eighteen months that I spent in the program helped to enhance my understanding of the trainer’s role in an organization, why it is imperative to develop human capital, and the advantages of leveraging relationships. The program helps to highlight the need for trainers in organizations today and equips students with the tools necessary to become effective trainers. In applying theory and practice, I have had the opportunity to work with Starboard Cruise Services where I gained valuable insight on the role and effectiveness of training and development, and its impact on the success of the company.

Developing human capital is the underlining focus of this program where my classes were geared towards understanding how investing in employees' training and education contributes to a better return on investment for employers because the right people are trained for the right jobs. As far as leveraging relationships, this program provided me with a platform to meet and network with people that are already working in the field. The program allowed me to have a better understanding of the different functions of Human Resource Development and how it fits into the big picture of any organization. I used the opportunities provided to solicit advice and feedback about ways to improve myself. Overall, my journey was memorable; my classmates and professors were always supportive and ready and willing to accommodate me whenever necessary."
