Managing Human Resources

The programme enables to students learn how to take a critical perspective on current theory and practice, to analyse complex human resource management (HRM) problems, and to devise creative solutions to them; the overall philosophy and aims of this course, following those laid down by the CIPD, are to articulate the knowledge and competence required to undertake a professional HRM or development role, acting as a 'business partner' and adding value to the objectives of the organisations HR professionals work for; a related key objective is the establishment, monitoring and promotion of standards and ethics, as defined in the CIPD's qualifications at Advanced Level; we achieve these aims by encouraging students to evaluate critically HR policies and practices from differing ideological perspectives; in this way students develop analytical and critical skills, enabling them to help employing organisations adapt to changing conditions.
