Program Philosophy

The philosophy of our program is to focus on HRM from a contemporary perspective, thereby explicitly highlight the changing HRM environment. This changing HRM environment is characterized by an increasing emphasis on proactivity and multidisciplinary analysis that is propelled by key societal and organizational changes such as increased flexibility of work, changing employer-employee relationships, digitalization, and international mobility of staff.

This program focuses on various dimensions of HRM like employee development, staffing, performance, Professional Career Development, Human Resource Information System, International Human Resource Management, Business Labor Law and others. These processes subsequently linked to our courses, which will be integrated throughout the program, thereby creating a multidisciplinary approach to our HRM program. Finally, a required Internship and Graduation Project experiences allow the students to synthesize the knowledge which they acquire through an extensive organizational exposure.

This degree is designed in such a way to mold the students with a solid ground in Human Resources for managing the people, thereby to achieve positive outcomes in areas such as staff motivation, staff performance appraisal, training and development, and staff retention.
