I made a decision to enroll to a HRM course and my research led me to at an established brand like that of Epsilon College, member of Epsilon Net Group. The program met all the requirements for a flexible, successful and high-level Master’s degree.
The training material complete, the curriculum updated with the latest market trends for Human Resources.

The professors of the program are established, with an excellent academic background, close to us and permanently willing to give their help. Epsilon College’s partnership with the University of Northampton makes this the best choice in HR studies .
Obtaining an undergraduate degree is a milestone for a successful career path, however, the acquisition of a master’s degree gives the opportunity to deepen the subject of study and lead in the labor market. Attending Epsilon College’s MSc in Accounting & Finance graduate program provided me with all the necessary resources and a more thorough specialization in the financial industry. The master’s program not only satisfied my desire for further education but also served as a springboard to a new successful career.
I was lucky enough to be one of the first Master HRM student of Epsilon College and UoN.
My initial thought was to use my time during the pandemic to acquire more skills and knowledge about the subject of HR, so that I could be more effective in my collaborations.
I chose the full time mode of the programme and without a doubt I could say that it is one of the best decisions I made for choosing a program, in terms of my training and my professional development, but also my personal development.
Northampton is an amazing University, which created an impressive program and the teaching of the courses is undertaken by professors with professional experience and tangible knowledge of the market in the HR subject.
The program is structured with a scientific background, best practices and new trends in the field of HR, supported by the impressive Northampton library with access to it as students.

Following my long years of experience in group treasury of a multinational corporation reporting to the C level executives, I decided to pursue a master’s degree in Finance & Accounting to enhance and update my knowledge and obtain a complete view of the said field in search for my next step in my career.
Most of the modules helped me in improving my knowledge in finance however, to my surprise, through my master’s studies at Epsilon College, I was introduced to a relatively new subject of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) which I had no previous experience in and that was closely related to my field of expertise and is very crucial for the viability and performance of corporations today. I strongly believe such learning experience will assist me elevate my career path in the foreseeable future.
I am satisfied that the course of 18 months was up to date, delivered by professional tutors who presently work in the industry (bankers and finance specialists of multinationals) who shared their work experience with their students throughout, making the theoretical part applicable and comparable to actual industry events.
I was also impressed with the organisation of the college in setting up the study sessions and programs that allowed me to manage my time working, studying, and spending quality time with my family. The whole experience was very enjoyable and extremely useful.
Choosing to continue your studies in an older age with many is an important decision to make and it should be made based on strong personal criteria, goals and aspirations. Participating in the MSc in Accounting & Finance of Epsilon College supported and strengthened my intention to gain in depth knowledge and specialization in the subject of Finance and Accounting. The knowledge I gained through this 2 years broadened my intellectual horizon, making this program an exciting experience, which offers exactly what you need to evolve.

The knowledge as well as the continuous practical methods offered by the program transformed me to a HR Professional able to manage any human capital need in the modern, continuous changing professional environment.
Our teaching staff with real work experience in the field was always willing to support our effort, contributing significantly to our success . The resources of the program, combined with the wide recognition of the University of Northampton, gave me the opportunity to enter the world of HRM, enabling me to take the next step in my career.
Choosing Epsilon Net College for postgraduate studies in the field of HRM is the right choice. Professionalism, reliability, fully qualified teaching staff, with many years of experience in the field and willing to solve any question that arises, are a few words that come in mind when I think about my experience.
During the period of my studies, I had the opportunity to broaden my horizons, improve the organization of human resources at work, and directly provide, from the very first courses, innovative solutions to complex issues that plague the entire business sector in nowadays, primarily in the field of human resources.
I recommend it unreservedly, not only to up-and-coming, but also established human resources executives, who through the program will benefit from modern training in their field of work.
Studying the MA HRM program at Epsilon Net College allowed me to broaden my horizons and understand the business world and specifically the field of Human Resources.
