The achievement of sustained competitive advantage in any organization largely depends on the effective management of human resources. Technological, financial and operational resources and capabilities provide only short-term competitive advantage. Moreover, faced with the challenges of increasing globalisation and competition, organisations are rapidly expanding. They are facing ever increasing complexities ranging from environmental issues to cross-cultural and geo-political issues. In this context, the conceptualisation and implementation of effective human resource management practices to attract, develop, motivate and retain a highly competent and diverse knowledge workforce is imperative. This also requires highly competent human resource professionals who possess holistic understanding of business, society and government and are well-equipped in all aspects of Human Resource Management.
The MBA-HRM is a two-year full-time residential program with a sharp focus on “People Management” in the emerging knowledge economy. It is designed to develop highly competent human resource professionals by imparting the knowledge, skills and experience essential for managing human resources in an organization.
