Visit From External Examiner, Dr David Wan of SIM University
Dr David Wan, Head of Programme, Human Resource Management, SIM University and Executive Council Member of the Singapore Human Resources Institute visited the School of Business (SB) and met with various members of staff between 28 June and 1 July 2010.
Dr Wan, the External Examiner for Diploma in Human Resource Management with Psychology (DHRMP) course, was impressed with the design and quality of the DHRMP course. He believed that this course will be able to meet the growing needs of the industry for competent Human Resource professionals. He thought that the DHRMP offers an excellent curriculum through highly qualified, experienced and caring lecturers to a group of bright and hard-working students:
“I am of the view that the DHRMP curriculum is both comprehensive and holistic. The treatment of the HRM field is substantive. Coupled with a strong grounding in business subjects, the DHRMP graduates will be able to not just embark on a career in human resource management, but also excel in general management and others that are people-oriented.
In addition, I am impressed with the fact that the DHRMP students are very well taken care of by the DHRMP faculty. The DHRMP “Plus” provides a strong foundation for building student-school identity and cohesiveness. The long list of engagement is something that the DHRMP faculty should be proud of – student emotional wellness (e.g. peer buddy programme, HR Bonding Day); student development (e.g. student chapter, leadership development, HRM seminars, industry involvement, HR competitions); global orientation (e.g. overseas tours and overseas immersion programme); HR accreditation and career preparation.'
Dr Wan also commended SB for providing DHRMP students excellent opportunities for practical training in its new Human Resource (HR) Learning Studio:
“With the opening of the new HR Learning Studio, the DHRMP students have another channel to satisfy their learning needs. My on-site visit to the HR Learning Studio confirms that both the advanced technology and engaging environment are conducive to learning.”
