This highly interactive and engaging programme is designed to familiarise participants with the very latest thinking on, and best practice in, Human Resource Management. This programme places HRM right at the heart of organisational management in a rapidly changing, ever more complex, and increasingly global marketplace. It is aimed at those who have been given, or who are about to be given, operational responsibility for aspects of HRM and those who wish to progress into a career in HRM. It is also aimed at those who are stimulated by the growing recognition of the strategic significance of HRM in the modern organisation and those who wish to use the programme as a launch-pad for further studies in HRM in due course.
Programme Aims and Objectives
The course provides a very effective practical overview of the latest thinking and case developments in HRM in order to provide both a conceptual and practical basis for student
learning. It also encourages students to draw on their own experiences, and from their knowledge of the business world around them, to develop a clear understanding and practical working knowledge of what HRM in the modern organisation involves. The course is highly interactive, the enjoyment of class discussion by students being a major feature of the programme.
On completion of the programme students should have acquired the skills to:
appreciate the strategic and operational significance of modern HRM
be equipped with a highly relevant and useful theoretical framework for the development and evaluation of HRM concepts, strategies, policies, principles, and practices (allied to a thorough grasp of the operational details of HRM best practice).
To be awarded the Diploma in Human Resource Management, a student will be marked on continuous assessment (50%) and a written examination at the end of the academic
