Become an expert in maximising organisations’ greatest asset: people.
In today’s digitalised society, never has it been so important to keep people in mind. How do you find the X factor among today’s growing machine-generated candidate pools? What keeps people motivated, involved and capable of contributing to innovation and positive change, thereby shaping an organisations strategy? In other words: how can you manage and develop the potential of people in an increasingly digitalised world? The specialisation in Human Resource Management will turn you into a valued business leader that helps companies, governments and organisations bring out the best in themselves, their employees, partners and suppliers.
This specialisation places HRM firmly in the context of international, high tech, innovative businesses and digital transformation. This makes our HRM specialisation unique in its kind. Next to the fundamentals of HRM, you will explore the possibilities for the future of people management. You will learn how to recruit the best talent using social media, how to support people-driven innovation in organisations, and how to co-manage technology, artificial intelligence and human potential. For example, how can you use chatbots in the job applicant screening process? Or how can you use AI-based software to create job descriptions for vacancies? You will become skilled in identifying how tech developments affect employees – and vice versa – and in ensuring that technology benefits people, organisations and society.
You will not only gain in-depth knowledge of the science of HRM but also marketable skills in the management of analysis, teams, consultancy and projects. Science and application are fused in different ways throughout the programme: from team projects in which you work on practical cases from the business world to lectures by guest speakers representing players like Air-France KLM, Philips, Royal TenCate, Capgemini, Shell, Pepsi Cola, DSM, and other prominent members of different sectors in the international business community. You will get taught by Europe’s leading researchers in the field of HRM, innovation and technology, as our research programmes are seen as pioneering projects in international HRM.
As a graduate of this Master's and this specialisation, you have acquired specific, scientific knowledge, skills and values, which you can put to good use in your future job.
