The Postgraduate Certificate in Human Resource Management course has been designed by the Cambridge International Education Centre (CIEC) in UK (group of very distinguished academic and professional practitioners with both national and international experience covering a wide range of subject areas) and is awarded by Paris Graduate School with academic direction by HomeUni (HomeUni offers online academic programmes studied by means of distance/blended learning in which successful students receive an award from its partner Universities’ or other awarding bodies). This 60 credits course serves as an access to the Paris Graduate School’s MBA.

Applications are invited from graduates seeking to acquire an understanding of the necessary discipline insights to move into a career unrelated to their subject matter of their first degree and from experienced professionals desirous of changing careers.

The Programme is awarded by Paris Graduate School and covers 60 credits of the Paris Graduate School’s MBA. Holders will do additional 60 and dissertation to earn this world class MBA.

The Human Resource Management function has changed markedly in the past 30 years, from an emphasis on personnel, welfare, discipline and training to a focus on HR policies and practices that lay a key strategic role in the Ability-Motivation-Opportunity model that underpins High Performance Work Systems. Contemporary HR analysts suggest that the focus has now shifted towards cost control and the protection of shareholder returns. The Covid-19 pandemic is arguably creating new challenges for HR to develop ways of working that create sustainability for organisations and their workforce.

This 60 Credit short course covers both the key HR skills and the emerging HR perspectives so important to the contemporary workplace.
