The HELP MHRD is designed to produce leading HR practitioners who utilise their advanced knowledge (theories, concepts and code of practices) analytically to provide evidence-based solutions to address organisational issues. Students will learn how to lead, communicate and exchange ideas across different communication settings and work effectively with multiple stakeholders of diverse skills, cultural backgrounds and experience. The HELP MHRD also provides the students with the leadership competencies and skill sets to embrace a strong sense of ethical, social responsibility and entrepreneurial orientation towards self, organization and societal/industry development in a global context. Students will learn from academicians and experienced practitioners through a blended learning approach. The programme is aimed at building successful HR practitioners who can not only lead the HR function effectively but also assume an equally significant role of a strategic business partner to the organisation. Graduates would demonstrate the ability to apply strategic thinking and exhibit outstanding leadership skills in HR management, addressing and resolving complex organisational issues. The acquired strategic, functional and team development expertise besides personal leadership competencies ensure effective HR management and implementation of policies that are strategically aligned to organisational goals. A successful HR practitioner is one who not only leads the organisational HR functions but assumes an equally significant role of a strategic business partner to the organisation.
