This programme is perfect for you if you are a strategic thinker with strong problem-solving abilities. While the terms ‘human resources’ and ‘human capital’ sound quite theoretical and corporate, this programme is very much about people: how they interact, learn and develop in the workplace. You should therefore have good interpersonal skills and be able to work well in a team.
Our MSc. Learning and Development in Organisations programme challenges you to think about supporting Learning & Development in an international business environment and to find effective, sustainable, and potentially far-reaching solutions. The programme gives you the opportunity to participate in a community of learners where students, staff, alumni and business partners share and create knowledge on this topic.
