The primary aim of this course is to help students acquire both a range of generic competencies relating to personal effectiveness, such as self-awareness and reflection, self-management, communication, leadership and influencing and managing the performance of others; and a series of competencies relating to the key human resource functions, such as recruitment and selection, change management, negotiating and bargaining and handling conflict.

The generic competencies include:

  • self-awareness and reflection;
  • self-management;
  • communication;
  • leadership and influencing; and
  • managing the performance of others.

The competencies regarding HR functions include:

  • Competencies for people management: change management and teamworking.
  • Competencies relating to acquiring staff: human resource planning, recruitment and selection.
  • Competencies relating to maintaining and developing staff: learning and development, employee relations (negotiation, bargaining, discipline and grievance and dispute resolution).
  • You read on distance and can take the exam at another location in the world.
  • You will receive an international certificate from one of the world's leading universities.
  • You get a solid material.
  • You get strong support through the web.
  • You turn knowledge directly into “business in practice”.
  • You get academic credits and the benefit of the wider international studies (MBA, MSc and DBA).



MBA education has been very stimulating and gave me the tools to apply the knowledge practically in the workplace. The flexibility to learn on distance fits perfectly with a job that involves lots of travelling.
