It was a good decision to pursue PGDHRM program from SCDL. It has added great value to my professional career and enhanced my personality largely. I found the course very interesting and comprehensive. I am a full time employee and studying from home at my own pace was easier for me. The course materials, flexible exam dates, online support, faculty chat forums and web communication made completing the program easy. I definitely recommend this course to others.
