Overview

The course will introduce students to the core of human resources function in organisations: acquiring, developing, motivating, and retaining people. The structure of HR policies and practices must enable employees to fully apply their skills to the achievement of organisational goals. Every essential element of the HR function – strategy, organizational design, policies, and programs – needs to align with HR and business strategy.
