Human Resources Management: Master's Year 1

Program Objectives

This first year is common to the CAC and MSRH courses, trains future HR generalists or functional specialists in Human Resources as well as change management consultants. These roles require technical HR expertise as well as an understanding of organizational, business, and managerial challenges, all of which are addressed in detail over the course of the degree program. Given the accelerated pace of transformation in businesses, public institutions, and the nonprofit sector, change management skills are more in demand than ever on the executive market.

  • Learn how to address the main issues in HR management, contextualizing them in terms of organizational and business concerns, while developing both theoretical and practical skills.
  • Develop the ability to reckon with the tensions wrought by change through the acquisition of an interdisciplinary education in sociology, psychosociology, management, and education.
  • Learn how to provide analysis, advice, and support.
