The realisation of the importance of proper human resource management has been reflected in the hiring of people with specialised skills in personnel management, compensation, labour relations, training and management development, and the use of organisational development consultants.
This programme is designed to provide students with an in-depth knowledge of the three management functions that have become most critical in modern organisations: personnel management, industrial relations and organisational behaviour. It emphasises both practical and conceptual skills to enable students to work in all areas of human resource management in both the public and private sectors.
The programme aims to provide a broad understanding and appreciation of organisations as well as skills in basic Human Resource Management functions.
On completion of the programme, graduates should be able to help shape an organisation or business through staff planning, job analysis and design, appraisal of staff performance and assessment of training needs.
