Master of Human Resource Development

The programme is designed to equip HR practitioners or those aspiring to assume senior HR roles with a strong interdisciplinary foundation and a set of leadership skills to assume multiple leadership roles and be visibly accountable for business results. Students will develop skills to explore cutting edge concepts, business insights, best practices and case studies related to areas such as Integrated Talent Management, Employee Engagement, HR transformations, Strategic Planning and organizational development and change.

  • HR has a vital leadership role to play but most of the programmes on HR is on HR functional skills training, the HELP Master of HR Development bridges that knowledge gap.
  • The design of the HELP Master of HR Development Programme takes an outside in approach as we believe that HR professionals must look outside their organization to customer and the communities that they are serving to define their success in the profession and not just how well they manage their HR functions in a company.
  • Students will be exposed to various business strategy case studies of different companies in different industries to ensure that they do not fall back into their functional perspective
  • Teaching will be delivered via a mixture of lectures, seminars and practical workshops with strong practical industry-relevant component. Most, if not all teaching faculty have deep professional experience in HR
    related areas.
The ELM Framework

ELM stands for entrepreneurship, leadership and management (elm). It reflects our understanding of the multifaceted role of both individuals and organisations that at any one time the trinity role of entrepreneurship, leadership and management interplays to create, manage and sustain a business over different phases of its life.

The ELM schema integrates the role of mindset transformation with process competency development for the three vectors of elm. We term this the mindset based competency approach to understand and use elm in strategic business thinking and operational management. The ELM Framework underlies our philosophy of the ELM Graduate School executive education and the way we teach and learn business in the HELP Group.

The ELM Framework (right) synthesises relevant theoretical constructs and integrates them into a practical system of decision making process concerning elm. It is a useful tool to facilitating thinking out the right business model and strategy execution.The ELM Framework starts with the end: that is, it is outcome based rather than problem based. VOW is the final goal. It comprises values, opportunities and wealth. Wealth in Chinese is cai, which has two meanings in written form: knowledge and material wealth. VOW can be defined in whatever way one wants to. But they must be worthy of our talents, reflective of the ethics of our personal life, and society or other centered.What is crucial is that elm is the powerful driving force of the mindsets (CAAAC). CAAAC stands for the Contemplative, Analytic, Adaptive and Actualization and Consequential Mindsets. These specific mindsets must be interpreted as the transformative growth mindset, and not just any mindset change. The growth mindset grows the competencies of each of the elm to a higher level in order to lead every growth phase of a business.
