This program provides skills to integrate human resources functions with the overall business strategy of an organization. This program covers key areas of management, and specialized Human Resources Management (HRM) courses for managers who want to play a greater role in HRM. HR professionals are also under pressure to know more about other aspects of management, and to manage their own professional development.
