Do You Know There Has Been a 48% Increase in Demand For Human Resources Talent in 2018?*

Get Ready to Shine In The Golden Age of HR

If there's an opportunity to work in Google today, would you take it? Most of us will—probably NOT because we are super passionate about digital technology, but because Google‘s unique culture and unparalleled employee perks are known far and wide. They’re a huge reason for Google’s continued success.

While not every company can match what Google is doing, it's safe to say that the business world today is hungry for workplace cultures that bring out the very best in people—and the responsibility to shape and create those cultures rests on the shoulders of HR.

This is nothing new, HR has always played a strategic role in helping people and industries to transform and grow. Now suppose you have the influence to unlock the potential of organisations and people, what kind of difference would you make?
You see, as part of a government affiliated institute, this is SHRI Academy’s goal: to impart to you human resource competencies—core competencies that can help you springboard your career by helping others to adapt, transform and maximise their potential, while boosting overall effectiveness of the organisation you work for.

Don’t take our word for it. Hear what our recent graduates have to say:

Even before my graduation, I was offered a regional HR managerial post with strategic focus, within global German MNC as they were confident of the course accredidation, and of course that came with a good salary jump. Two years onward, enjoying my management acknowledgement of my deep skill sets. I was all ready to pursue the Master of Science in Human Resources, a 6 months top up course offered by SHRI Academy & Edinburgh Napier University, a prestigious university in UK.

Looking back, I am glad that I have chosen SHRI Academy as my education partner. I have enjoyed much acknowledgement and thus, increased my confidence sitting in directors' meeting. I sure appreciate SHRI Academy for making this possible for my career journey and hope she continues her good work in skilling up the HR community gaining accreditation.

It was a very fulfilling experience studying at SHRI Academy. The Diploma in Business and Human Resource Management course kept much of its course materials to local and regional context and the lecturers are well-equipped with plenty of local experiences, which helps us relate to the issues or topics discussed. I was able to work well with my course mates and even proceeded to the Bachelor of Arts in Human Resource Management with Organisational Psychology (Top-Up) with some of them. It is an excellent platform both for enhancing HR professional knowledge and for networking with HR practitioners in a variety of sectors.


Diploma in Business and Human Resource Management (currently known as Diploma in HR Leadership with Business Partnering)

The journey with SHRI Academy was an interesting one. The lecturers utilized knowledge & life experiences to make classes so interesting that you realize you are not going to be bored and out of topics for discussions constantly. The cohort makes a difference to the whole experience considering this is a good opportunity for networking as well with practitioners, both HR and none HR professional.

More Success Stories

It has been over 10 years since I last took up a course. I guess it is not difficult to imagine how sceptical I was during my first lesson at SHRI for the Diploma in Organisational Psychology. However, all these fears were unfounded as the lecturers were dynamic and professional in their teachings. Besides the subject materials, they shared their extensive personal experience, giving relevant examples, patience in guiding and a pinch of sense of humour. I enjoyed the lessons and was able to understand them without much difficulty. The modules were interesting and this learning has changed my perspective towards work and personal life.

Diploma in Organisational Psychology

My experience with SHRI Academy is very pleasant and their staff are quick in assisting with our requests. The lecturers and tutors are very experienced and are able to bridge between theory and practical application. Having this knowledge assists me in my daily tasks, such as talent selection where I have an in-depth understanding of how to select a candidate and how a selection process goes. I would recommend this course to my friends or anyone else who is interested in a HR career because it readily equips them with the necessary HR knowledge for them to perform in a HR role, or assist them in their daily work.
