Bachelor of Human Resource Management Online


Program Description


The purpose of the Bachelor of Human Resource Management is to equip graduates with an in-depth grounding in human resource management (HRM) knowledge, theory, principles, and skills so that they can contribute to the multifunctional, multinational public and business sectors, confidently executing analytical, interpretive, strategic and integrative skills.

The exit learning outcomes of the programme are aligned with the requirements of NQF Level 7 and students are required to apply theoretical knowledge to complex problems and to present such application as a well-structured argument using academic discourse.

The Bachelor of Human Resource Management will empower students with a set of skills, values, attitudes, and knowledge to enable them to:

  • contribute to the development, growth, competitiveness, and sustainability of organizational assets: employees, teams and associated communities;
  • formulate, plan, strategize, execute, measure and improve HRM and business processes, practices, systems, and solutions;
  • partner, learn from and collaborate with national, regional and global HRM and business stakeholders to improve the performance of human capital via talent development;
  • apply innovation and technology to implement and improve HRM and business systems, policy, procedure and best practices; and
  • comply with good governance, strong ethics, and quality performance standards when implementing, managing and improving HRM and business practices.
