Our graduate programmes in human capital management are structured sequentially. The three courses that constitute the Graduate Certificate in Human Capital Management
are supplemented with three further courses to give the Graduate Diploma in Human Capital Management. Similarly, the six courses of the Graduate Diploma are enhanced by a further six courses to form the Master in Human Capital Management.
The first three courses cover key human capital management areas such as talent acquisition, retention, performance, and development, as well as providing a foundation in employment law, policy, and ethics. The second three courses adopt an increasingly strategic approach, covering reward strategy and business partnering, as well as more fundamental topics such as leadership and change management.
The final six courses constitute the Master’s specialisation. Students can choose to specialise in one of the following three areas: advanced human capital management, human capital and business leadership, or human capital analytics. This allows you the flexibility to chart your own path, and gives you the chance to deep-dive into critical human capital issues, such the changing workforce, diversity management, technological disruption, data analytics, and business excellence.
All Masters students will also have the opportunity to conduct a supervised human capital research project of their choosing, which can be taken in lieu of two electives within the chosen specialisation stream.
