    Course Outline

    This is a single year program for most students, taken over the course of three terms.

    In these terms you will take several core modules designed to give you a firm grounding in the tools, methods and theory of this discipline. You will also select several elective modules which conform to your personal interests and intended specialty as an HRM professional.

    Core Modules:

    The core modules include:

    • Developing Skills for Business Leadership
    • Employment Relations
    • International HRM
    • Leading, Managing and Developing People
    • Research Methods for HRM
    • Strategic HRM and Employee Engagement
    • Talent Management
    • Work, Employment and HRM

    Optional Modules:

    There are also optional modules, which can be selected from among those on offer during any particular term. The list offered will vary from term to term, but often includes:

    • Management of negotiation
    • Business Ethics / CSR

    …as well as more topical options.

    Research Project in HRM:

    You will also be responsible for completing a research project, under the guidance and with the support of the university’s teaching staff.

    Learning & Teaching

    You will take multiple research modules during your 3 terms in this program. Each module will include lectures, seminars and/or lab sessions. In addition, you will be expected to spend at least 30% (and often as much as 50%) of your study time working on your supervised research project.

    • Employee Relations Expert
    • Employee Engagement Consultant
