One of the major challenges facing the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is the shortage of Saudi Human Resources (HR) managers, experts, and professionals. In addition, organizations, around the world, are increasingly realizing the importance of having quality work-force as their most critical source of competitive advantage. Therefore, now more than ever, is the time for you to major in Human Resources Management (HRM).
HRM is the study of how to acquire, train, appraise, and compensate employees as well as attend to their labour relations, health and safety needs, and fairness concerns. The HRM concentration in the College of Business aims to provide students with the essential body of knowledge and skills to support the development and practice of responsible people policy and people management practices in KSA organizations, while considering international best practices. The HRM program consists of a set of interrelated modules designed to provide you with the tools needed to manage the human resources in organizations of different sizes, in various sectors and industries. Through a combination of lectures, projects, business-cases, and presentations, students will learn the concepts and techniques needed to attend to the growing market needs for HR experts and professionals. To add international acceptance and enhance graduates’ career progression, the university is seeking international accreditation of the program.
