If you recognise the importance of acquiring knowledge in the recruitment, motivation, retention and development of people, then this CIPD approved course is designed for you.
It will benefit you if you want to acquire skills to pursue a high-level career involving managing employment relationships in the private, public, or not-for-profit sectors, as well as getting the best out of people you employ in your own business.
You will sharpen your understanding of the importance of having the right mix of people with the appropriate sets of skills and competences, the significance and role of leadership, change management, the development and retention of talent, the challenges of managing people in multi-cultural and global contexts, and strategic human resource management.
Two key features of this course are its multi-disciplinary nature, and its engagement with contemporary debates in theory and actual practice. You will have the opportunity to learn from world-class experts, to participate in highly interactive lectures, workshops, case study analyses and blogs.
You will also engage in rigorous research and learn from practitioners, applying theory to practical organisational contexts that you will encounter in your working life.
