Student and Alumni Testimonials
Hear from current students as they describe how Columbia’s Human Capital Management (HCM) M.S. program is preparing them to advance their careers while driving organizational excellence in times of uncertainty and change.
Human capital management is even more important now more than ever. With the structure and the framework that I learned from the HCM program at Columbia, I really have an advantage; we've already discussed those strategies ahead of time."Raisa Correa Ramalho '20SPS, Human Capital Management; Vice President, Compensation, Citi
There are so many things that we're facing today that we didn't even face at the beginning of the semester. It's so beneficial for us to have working professional professors who have been in the field themselves."Stephen Grove '21, Human Capital Management; Project Manager, Diversity, Talent and Training, Bloomberg News
A lot of the discussions we’re having are about how organizations can adjust their workforce to adapt. Having to go through this program in this pandemic is very valuable because it exposed us to what we are learning in theory."Michael Ray Almario '20SPS, Human Capital Management; HR Manager, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas
This program is making me a stronger leader. I have the ability to hone and mold the HR professional that I want to be. I have a lot of flexibility to explore that and I'm getting feedback from some of the best in the business."Lindsey McClain-Pinkett '21SPS, Human Capital Management; Chief of Staff to the Senior Vice President of Transformation & Culture, IBM
I can personally say we’re getting practical ideas that we’re taking back to work. At my company, we instituted a weekly review with the leadership team, where I talk about topics that I learned recently in the Columbia program."Jay Niblick, ’21SPS Human Capital Management; Chief Strategic Officer & Co-Founder, WizeHire
I was promoted to manage my department, overseeing a staff of four professionals... I don’t think maybe a year ago or two years ago, I would have been as prepared as I am now for the job. I think the Human Capital Management program has definitely helped with that.”James Joy '21SPS, Human Capital Management; Manager, Lerner Hall Operations, Columbia University
