The first of its kind in the Asia-Pacific region, our Human Resource Consulting (HRC) specialisation equips students with the ability to understand how business works and provide human resource solutions to help the business succeed.
The curriculum adopts a good mix of theories, practice, software and tools to give students a solid grounding in human resource practices. Students are well-prepared for roles in compensation and benefits, talent acquisition and management, training and development as well as consultancy. Strengthening students’ soft skills is one of the key strengths of the HRC specialisation as HRC students hone their skills in creativity, communication, persuasion and collaboration.
As workplace transformation continues with further technological disruptions, digital literacy courses which are compulsory for all HRC students will prepare them to better support organisations’ strategic business models.
Taught and mentored by faculty who are very strong in research, and practitioners with extensive industry experience.
We offer the Master of Science (Human Capital Management), a graduate-level programme that goes beyond the management of people as a functional management concern to emphasize a strategic orientation instead. This is achieved by focusing on the management of people and business processes to achieve strategic visions and goals of organisations, a critical responsibility of all successful managers and entrepreneurs. Students in the programme develop an in-depth understanding of and insight into the issues and managerial approaches essential for human capital development.
