Former participant’s testimony

Integrating the University Diploma has been a real opportunity for me to succeed in my professional project. With 15 years of commercial experience, my objective was to discover the HR function and to acquire solid skills in order to evolve into a new business. For me, it was an adventure full of encounters, sharing experiences and discovering an exciting trade. The pace of the training with classes concentrated around 3 days per month, combined with personal research, enables one to move alternatively from knowledge of theories to practical experience within companies. At the end of the DU, I had the opportunity to take on the role of HR Manager in my company. Thus, I was able to approach my new function with serenity. Beyond the skills in HR, during this program I acquired good analytical reflexes as well as becoming open-minded.
