Business Partner #2

For Ms. Marut, learning in a professional classroom setting featuring routines and weekly deadlines helped her be more accountable for her work, forcing her to be prepared for her exam. She enjoyed the course’s instructor and her classmates, as everyone shared their own HR experiences and learned together through the relationships they formed.
