Opportunities Abound in a Transformational Industry
“The profession of human resource management is undergoing a tremendous change,” says Dr Frankie Lam, the Programme Director. “A job which used to be mostly transactional in nature has changed into a dynamic profession which is essential for enabling the transformation of organisations,” says Dr Lam.
“Advances in technology, and the effects of global competition, have led to executive management teams working with human resource professionals as strategic partners to attract, retain, and develop top talent. HR professionals train and motivate employees at all levels to perform at their peak,” says Dr Lam.
Theory and Practice, in Class and Beyond
“The industry is looking for graduates who understand contemporary theories and best practices in human resources management and organisational behaviour,” says Dr Lam. “Interpersonal skills, team building, and a strategic perspective on human resource management are also desirable qualities. Lectures and company visits help students understand how contemporary theories and best practices in human resource management, and organisational behaviour, are applied in real-life situations,” says Dr Lam.
