Economics and Administration

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Professionals who have studied economics and administration comprehend both the larger economic picture and smaller, individualized trends. It is an interdisciplinary field in which specialists are trained to consider and analyze many components in both the public and private section and make recommendations based on current and potential conditions.

A Master of Human Resource Management (HRM) degree from the University of Newcastle develops in graduates the knowledge and practical skills to become an effective, ethical and successful practitioner in human resource management (HRM) and/or employment relations (ER), working in business, government, consulting or community sector organisations. The Master of Human Resource Management can be studied face-to-face at the Newcastle City Precinct, online or a combination of the two.

If you would like to undertake a rigorous but practical program that builds your skills and well as your knowledge, and challenges you to do your best, this Program is for you.

This means you could reduce your study by up to a third! Is it for you? The Master of HRM program at the University of Newcastle carefully balances theory and practice. HRM and ER professionals work in roles as advisors to and advocates for, as well as managers of, people. In these roles, they are frequently required to find a solution to organisational challenges in the face of plural, often conflicting, interests and strongly held views. HRM and ER professionals must be able to put a strong and reasoned argument for a particular way forward, based on a deep understanding of relevant theory as well as a practical understanding of the problem and its context. In many ways, this will be their most critical role at work. The approach you will take to learning in this program builds mastery in this role, developing your confidence and competence and preparing you well for a career in HRM. A Master of Human Resource Management through the University of Newcastle is designed to meet the diverse needs of students through: a research-led curriculum, taught by highly qualified and experienced teachers, supported by the Professor of Employment Studies strong engagement with the profession, driven by an active Industry Advisory Committee comprising representatives from business, unions, the public sector and government; use of Problem-Based Learning (PBL) and other active learning techniques to build collaborative, research, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and developing students’ confidence and competence; practical, ‘real-world’ exercises and assessments, drawn from a range of sectors, industries and countries, to better prepare graduates for their future workplaces; and on-line, blending learning and intensively taught course formats to optimise flexibility for students. Surveys seeking student and graduate feedback on post-graduate programs have found that overall student satisfaction with the on-campus MHRM Program was 95% in 2011, and 92% in 2013. Staff members teaching in the MHRM program have received National, University and Faculty Teaching Excellence Awards, and use their strong relationships with government and industry to organise ‘real-world’ assessments, guest lectures, sites visits and research projects. Career Pathways The Master of Human Resource Management program is comprehensive, contemporary and practical. It will develop your professional expertise in the processes and application of human resource management and employment relations. The program will provide you with depth of knowledge in the field and simultaneously build your skills in addressing workplace challenges, and developing and managing people.

You will be able to apply relevant, rigorous HRM and ER theory to a variety of contexts; and develop and implement evidence-based strategies to address individual, group and organisational challenges. You will be confident in your ability to know and apply the ‘rules’ of HRM and ER, and be able to deal with conflict constructively. You will be able to make a genuinely strategic contribution to the success of any organisation in which you work.
