The MSc Human Resources and Organizations is a challenging one year program that provides a rigorous, interdisciplinary social science foundation with a strong business and management orientation. The program offers students an international and comparative approach and provides broad choice among specialized topics through the vast array of required courses and optional electives.
The degree has three streams:
Human Resource Management stream (HRM): this stream has been designed to allow students to satisfy the educational requirements of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development's (CIPD) professional levels of membership. Students participate in workshops to develop the skills and competencies that are essential for an HR professional career and CIPD accreditation.
International Employment Relations and Human Resource Management stream (IERHRM): this stream has been designed to give students the tools to develop and evaluate successful employment and human resource policies in a rapidly changing global economy. Upon graduation, students will be equipped with the knowledge necessary to tackle contemporary management and policy challenges in a range of organizational and international settings.
Organizational Behavior stream (OB): this stream examines behavior and change in organizations, primarily through the lenses of psychology and sociology. Students will engage in a multi-disciplinary, in-depth approach to understanding the fundamental issues of behavior and change in organizations at the individual, group and organizational levels.
