The Human Resource Management (HRM) unit was formed to develop among graduates of educational institutes an awareness of and the ability to practise good human relations and teamwork in their places of employment.

All students in the university are taught an HRM course which includes:

  • Concepts of productivity and how it is related to the economy, company and individual
  • Benefits of company welfarism
  • Importance of non-adversarial labour-management relationships in enhancing productivity and importance of people-centred management system

As part of the Management and Organization Department, we offer modules in human relations management and various applied management subjects to undergraduates from Business School and other faculties.

Our aim is to help students engage with some of the contradictions and challenges that will confront them at the workplace. These modules are designed specifically to prepare students to be part of the workforce.
