Course Brief

Human resource management (HRM) is concerned with the effective management and utilisation of human resources in organisations. For most organisations, human resources are their greatest assets and their optimal utilisation is the key to competitive advantage in today's increasingly harsh economic environment. Moreover, because effective HRM is now so crucial for success, many organisations now regard it as the responsibility of all managers, not just specialists in personnel management.By the end of this course, you will understand HRM from a strategic perspective and an operational perspective. Strategically, HRM policies and activities are designed to support and reinforce more general business strategies and objectives. Operationally, HRM is concerned with the design and implementation of procedures to optimise the day-to-day management of people in organisations.

    ebs_logo

    Built around the key roles of Human Resource Management, this programme will help develop the HR Manager’s strategic, functional and personal skills.

    Ask any organisation to identify the key to their success and they’ll say “our people”, but for those people to perform at their best, they need to work in an atmosphere in which they feel valued and rewarded. The HR professional is one of the keys to delivering just that.

    This programme will enable managers, whatever their present level of experience, to develop the strategic, functional and personal skills they need to meet the increasingly demanding roles of HR. The programme also addresses the increasingly important interfaces between HR and other key business functions, including marketing and communications, information and communications technologies and knowledge management.

    The areas of study include the HR function as strategic partner, change agent, administrative expert and employee champion. It also addresses the interface between HR and other key business functions. Graduates of the MSc will come away with invaluable insights, increased understanding and new knowledge.

    There are two tuition intakes per year for all courses:
