MASTER OF SCIENCE IN HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT (M.Sc. HRD)

Introduction

A programme designed for working professionals. The Faculty of Cognitive Sciences and Human Development, UNIMAS, invites you to register for the above programme. This programme is designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of human resource development professionals in both public and private sector organisations. It is unique as it incorporates cognition, human behaviour and information technology knowledge with human resource development and management. An attractive feature of this programme is that students are encouraged to apply HRD theoretical concepts and perspective to real cases within their own organisations. This is done through the completion of a research paper as a partial requirement for graduation.
