The organizations move, currently, in a globalized environment, more competitive and with socio-economic changes, technological, market, etc., increasingly faster and deeper. In this situation, the competitiveness of companies depends essentially on initiative, the capacity for innovation, the ability to solve problems and make decisions and the autonomy of the people who compose them.

Therefore, the competitiveness of companies relies more and more on the correct management of their human resources; or, as currently expressed in many forums, in the correct management of the people that comprise it.

Moreover, today organizations demand directors, managers and human resources technicians with different competences than those required of former directors and personnel technicians; skills such as planning and organization, continuous learning and improvement, decision making, flexibility, problem solving, etc .; as well as not only technical knowledge about the activities developed in the area, but also management, management, finance, legislation, etc....

The Master in People Management in Organizations aims to train professionals to place people at the center of the organization.

Exercising leadership means having knowledge of specific areas: strategy, finance, business management, and business situation analysis.

Throughout this program, the student develops the global perspective of the company, necessary for the area of people management to contribute effectively to reinforce corporate objectives.

Objectives Prioritize the strategic role of people management in organizations. Many training programs offered today concentrate on teaching the tactical and operational aspects of personnel management in organizations. The graduates of these programs are generally trained to handle the day-to-day tasks of human resource management. Nevertheless, many of these tasks are increasingly outsourced to specialized offices. This outsourcing should not simply be understood as a consequence of the efforts of companies to minimize their costs, but also as proof of the limited strategic consideration this area receives within companies. But if training programs prioritize the strategic role of people management in organizations, personnel management departments will be valued by their organizations as areas that add competitive value to the company. This is the intent of the Master's Degree in Personnel Management for Organizations: a shift in focus from "human resource management" to "people management." ... [-]
