The management of human resources will continue to play a strategic role in China’s economic development. This role will become even more critical to China as it moves up the value chain of its economic development. China’s continued success in competing with other emerging markets for attracting foreign direct investments will depend not only on its ability to produce more engineers and scientists, but also on whether it can produce sufficient professional managers, particularly human resource professionals to lead and motivate employees to meet industry demands.
There is a tendency in China for companies to assign human resource management functions mainly to personnel administrative areas, such as legal compliance, records maintenance, and issuance of personnel policies. A more modern Management of Human Resources Program offered by U.I.C. aims to remove this thinking from graduates and to replace it with a business strategic view of HRM. Thus, a human resource management professional is a strategic partner of an organization, and human resource activities and programmes are organized to support the achievement of an organization’s goals and objectives.
China’s emergence and increasing prominence on the world stage will raise the demand for human resource management skills and practices, in addition to international foresight and competence in the English language. This trend will lead to a strong and growing employment market, supported by local and foreign international companies, for graduates from the MHR program.
Graduates are also encouraged to pursue their postgraduate studies in Hong Kong or abroad. The curriculum of the program meets international standards. In addition, using international and popular textbooks for our courses and conducting the lectures in English help students gain an advantage in pursuing further studies.
