Bahareh Bahrani – Full-time Master in HR & Organization

14 July 2021

Innovation, interdisciplinarity, an international environment and a privileged relationship with businesses, which has enabled her to put in practice, right away, what she had learnt, during a challenging internship. Bahareh Bahrani, HR Generalist Intern at Philips, tells us about her journey at BBS as a participant in the Master in HR & Organization, providing us with food for thought and a useful point of view for all young graduates who are thinking of investing in a training that can launch them into the HR world as protagonists. 

When I chose to take my new journey in Bologna Business school I had already more than 7 years’ experience in HR in my hometown but as I had always worked in local HR, I decided to pursue my dream job in Europe, which was working in HR of an international company. This came true during my internship in Philips that gave me this chance to work in HR for an outstanding international company with people from different backgrounds and in diverse teams across the globe. Working for Philips gave me this opportunity to meet wonderful team players that facilitated my professional career to learn and develop.

My ambition and enthusiasm toward working in an international environment led me to choose a prestigious European business school in order to extend my academic knowledge and practical skills in HR. The program structure, the deep and comprehensive HR topics that are covered in the Master’s, the internship opportunity, the strong bond between school and well-known Italian and international companies, the diversity and international ambiance, the school brand and ranking among European schools and last but not least my own desire and passion for Italy led me to choose Bologna Business School. During the pandemic, the school’s management proved and demonstrated to me that I had made the best decision in trusting and choosing the Master’s and the school. 

One of the crucial advantages of the Master’s was the close ties between school and companies and the availability of professionals in this field to answer our doubts and questions. The other positive aspects that gave me the opportunity to discover more about real global challenges and issues in HR were company visits and real projects that have been conducted with the cooperation of companies. It was a priceless experience to get to know more about organizational culture, industries, HR approaches and challenges. This opportunity broadened my horizon and provided me with a deep perception of impacts of different criteria on HR on an international level. Diversity and different cultural backgrounds are another strength of the Master’s which you can find not only among students from different continents but also among professors, professionals, and also different industries through which we had the opportunity to better know their challenges. 

The opportunity to learn very different topics in HR gives you the chance to realize which function you are more passionate about and interested in. On the other hand, the internship in one of the school’s partners or any company provides you with a valuable on-the-job training and learning that expands your knowledge and skills and at the same time gives you the opportunity to put into practice what you have already learned during the course. The close relationship between school and different industries makes this Master’s practical and brings tangible experience in HR.
