Tarhata S. Guiamalon | Arbaya H. Boquia

Abstract: To ensure its survival in a world of rapid globalization and the COVID 19 Pandemic, a graduate school must improve the quality of its teaching and learning. According to the literature review, students worldwide faced problems and challenges following the closure of schools due to the pandemic. On this basis, it is deemed necessary to investigate post-graduate students? experiences during disruptions and their issues and concerns.Graduate students were identified as participants in the study. The interview was conducted using a specially designed open-ended interview form. The study found that most of the students stated that they have many issues and concerns. They need to enroll in post-graduate programs to remain competitive and differentiate themselves when competence in the job is required, such as being promoted to work or preparing for new work. It is difficult for them to learn everything in school; however, to improve their conditions and provide the best services to their clients, they must prioritize what benefits them.Based on the study?s findings, it can be concluded that their professional development may not have been hampered despite difficulties in time management, work-life balance, and stress management.
