Master of Science in Human Resource Management
New program from Edinburgh Business School
As a busy and ambitious professional you may want the range of skills and expertise that Master program can provide, but do not have time to accommodate the schedule of a less flexible Master program. That is why English School of Business chose to become Approved Learning Partner of Edinburgh Business School, institution which created the world's second most popular long distance MBA program according to Financial Times.
This program is aimed at professional managers, both those already working in the field of 'people management' and those who see their careers developing in that direction. The program is designed to help managers develop the strategic, functional and personal competences required to meet the increasingly demanding roles of HR, whatever their present level of experience.
The program is structured to reflect the roles now demanded of the HR professional:
- Strategic partner - working to align human resources with business strategy.
- Change agent - managing change processes to increase the effectiveness of the organisation.
- Administrative expert - working to improve organisational processes and deliver basic human resource services.
- Employee champion - listening and responding to employees' needs.
In addition to core HR concepts and techniques, the program addresses the increasingly important interfaces between HR and other key business functions, including marketing and communications, information and communications technologies and knowledge management. Managing across these interfaces is seen as an important way in which HR can meet the key strategic aims of organisations.
