Certificate in Human Resource Management
Human Resource Management is one of the most important capacities within a company or organization. Especially in a work- and knowledge-intensive society, human resources represent a crucial point of value added and are a source of competitive advantage. In recent years, the importance of human resource management has increased due to an expanding globalization and the augmented competitive pressure on the sales and labor market. Key topics include Staffing and Human Resource Development (because the procurement of talent and the refinement of human capital represents a significant competitive advantage) and Leadership (so that the entire team is committed to the company's objectives, thus exploit its full potential).
The course will teach you the professional and methodical knowledge and competences you need to work as a professional HR Manager. After you have finished the course, you will be prepared to coordinate human resources and their skills for the purpose of accomplishing organizational objectives and goals.
The certificate program in HR Management is designed for working men and women with little or no prior knowledge in human resources who need a
education program at ISCED Level 4/EQF Level 5 in order to make new career opportunities accessible, increase their occupational mobility, secure their current employment, or return to work after parental leave.[more]

The New Elite
"Online Education can […] be extremely egalitarian, but it is egalitarian in a funny way. It can catapult the smart, motivated, but nonelite individuals over the members of the elite communities. [… A] good education no longer relies on living near a major city."
