To align with UTHM’s vision of becoming a global technical university, the Department of Production and Operation Management (FPTP) held an international human resource talk on April 28, 2023.

The talk featured an international expert in talent management from the Telecommunication & Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TDRA) in the UAE.

The aim was to equip UTHM students with the skills and knowledge needed to become HR professionals capable of fulfilling the global market’s needs.

Therefore, the main objective of the webinar was to get a global learning experience in human resource management.

It created exposure and awareness about the ways and importance of talent management among the students who could apply this knowledge in their workplace.

Through this talk, students were able to get to know human resource practices, talent management planning, and best practices in the UAE. The talk was delivered by Dr. Nesreen Ibrahim Owaida, distinguished UTHM alumni with over 15 years of experience in the HR field.

According to the speaker, activating a sharing session with industry players from a global perspective was crucial.

This approach adds exceptional value to energizing future HR leaders in facing intense global challenges and prepares them for the demands of the global workforce.

Besides, it opens significant opportunities for UTHM students to enhance their employability on a global scale.
