This MSc provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental principles and techniques of human resource management and development (HRM&D). It enables you to develop competence, techniques and effectiveness in HRM&D, focusing on the crucial role of human resource development in meeting challenges in international development by adding value to economic activities, securing effective public services, and building capabilities within individuals, organisations and societies.
Participants will engage in a critical analysis of best practices in HRM&D, and their application to globalization and international development processes. The programme examines the current international business environment and its diverse nature of social and economic challenges to the management and development of human resources.
