Human Resource Management Major on the Master in Management Program


Human capital and social capital are strategic and dynamic resources that cannot be imitated, therefore they will be always important in any type of organization.

Competences acquired during the Human Resource Management major are needed for every employee, regardless of their place of work (production, services, administration) and place in the organization (managerial and executive positions). The program will cover many issues related to human resource management, such as recruitment and selection, training and development, and performance management.

Traditional HR courses will be supplemented with classes on technology in HR (information systems, social media, artificial intelligence). A large part of the classes is conducted using interactive methods, such as case studies, Oxford debates, discussions, tests, etc., which makes the topic of the course interesting for everyone. Besides, some classes will be conducted in cooperation with companies such as Randstad or Deloitte.

Human Resource Management program has been created for people planning their future as managers of departments, teams or entire organizations as well as people intending to develop their careers in HR departments of companies or consulting companies related to human resource management. People with the vision of starting a startup or working in a family business can also benefit from this scope.

The major is aligned with Society for Human Resource Management’s HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates. Throughout the world, over 400 programs in approx. 375 educational institutions have been acknowledged by SHRM as being in alignment with its suggested guides and templates. The HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates were developed by SHRM to define the minimum HR content areas that should be studied by HR students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The guidelines -- created in 2006 and revalidated in 2010, 2013 and 2017 -- are part of SHRM’s Academic Initiative to define HR education standards taught in university business schools and help universities develop degree programs that follow these standards.
