Master of Human Resource Management


About The Programme

The Master of Human Resource Management (MHRM) programme is designed in collaboration with the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), the world’s largest Chartered HR and development body, for aspiring managers and professionals with the ambition to become strategic leaders and human resource managers.

Students will be acquiring expertise not only through knowledge of contemporary human resource management theories, concepts and tools but will also be working in team throughout the programme and building sets of skills they can apply in practice. Since today’s organisations operate in a dynamic and complex environment with varying structures and cultures, the MHRM programme will equip students with the knowledge and leadership skills needed to face human resource challenges and meet the strategic needs of business.

Upon completion of the programme, graduates are awarded with dual certificates: MHRM certificate from the Sunway University and postgraduate-level Advanced Diploma in Human Resource Management from the CIPD. Graduates also upgrade their status to Associate Membership of CIPD and use the designatory letters ‘Assoc CIPD’ after their name that demonstrates that they have attained a recognised level of professional competence as an HR practitioner.
