of the Human Performance and Training (HPT) program is to develop students’
skills in assessing organizational employees’ performances, determining
performance gaps, designing and delivering training and non-training
interventions, and evaluating results. We achieve this goal by keeping up with
corporate trends such as delivering classes online, using the latest
technologies, delivering classes via a variety of formats, and assessing
students’ performances using real world methods. The goal

knowledge and skills as well as raise their efficacy in their overall abilities.
