MSc in Human Resources and Relationship Management
This program requires proficiency in English and French.
Created in 1978, this programme, which was pioneered in France, offers the possibility to obtain two degrees: the Master's in Human Resources Management and the University Diploma in Relational Management.
The objective of this full-time programme is to give a dual competence to future DRH or HR specialists. The first is a confirmed capacity for relations, listening, leadership, negotiation, all through an indispensable personal self-knowledge. The second aptitude is having an excellent mastery of the "management" rather than the "administrative" tools of HR.
The class is limited to 30-35.
The pedagogic methods are essentially based on the active participation of the participants: case studies, simulations, practical exercises, presentations of experience by professionals, work in the field, conferences. Group work is an important part of the programme with the very frequent use of audiovisual means (filmed supports, video editing, etc.) and NICT.
Continuous student assessment is ensured according to the methods adapted to the characteristics of each discipline in the programme and announced by the directors of seminars at their beginning. For pedagogic reasons, presence is obligatory. Symposiums, roundtables, where HR specialists are invited are organised and led by participants of the programme.
Since its creation, the HRM programme has developed very productive contacts and networks in professional HRM circles such as the ANDRH (The National Association of Human Resources Managers) which has clearly facilitated the obtaining of work placements and jobs.
