Human Resource is one of the key differentiators in enabling organisations to gain and maintain competitive edge. Organisations find it imperative to attract, nurture, develop and retain such talents who will be responsive to the demands of ever changing business environment.

Post Graduate Diploma in Human Resource Management (PGDHRM) opens up the insights and perspectives into the various HR subsystems for professionals to contribute in potential developments. At present, our PGDHRM graduates and students are working in more than one thousand organisations in the country and abroad. PGDHRM is a career-oriented and specialised professional qualification developed in collaboration with UK awarding organisations. Until the year 2004, relevant education and training sector in Bangladesh typically used the term ‘personnel management’ to refer HR diploma.  BiMS is the first organisation in Bangladesh to launch ‘PGDHRM’ as qualification and professional title in 2004.

After completing our post graduate programme, students get PGDHRM certificate awarded by Innovate Awarding, UK.
