Course Description

Technology, resources and data are important – but ultimately, it’s people who are essential to the success of any organisation.
Studying Human Resources Management or ‘HR’ as it is more commonly referred to, will help you attract and develop teams of people in any organisation in any industry.
You’ll learn recruitment techniques which will help you with interviewing – or being interviewed. You’ll examine rewards, pay, performance management, and the future direction of human resources as you explore strategic human resource management, employment policies and legal regulations.
As part of your studies, you’ll use virtual reality to practice your skills and take on real industry projects to get valuable experience.
