The MBA Program for Strategic Human Resource Management

The Program

This unique program is designed for those who seek to develop and expand their managerial skills with the intention to successfully cope with the managerial challenges of a rapidly-changing global market, which is subjected to social, technological, economic and political changes. These challenges, mainly in management of the human capital, demand different types of human resource management to meet the need for pro-active strategic thinking and for effective use of the firm’s resources to enhance its ability to cope with future changes. The effective management of the firm’s resources helps building the firm’s competitive advantage, and is considered a matter of organizational survival.

The Faculty is guided by principles of innovative managerial concepts. We acknowledge the appropriate standards of human resources management and perceive it to have a leading strategic role in the organization.

The goal is to academically train prospective managers who will be able to cope successfully with diverse managerial issues as a strategic/business partner in the organization.

The program is unique for its interdisciplinary approach. It includes a range of subjects taken from the field of business administration, as well as strategic human resource management. Students are trained in academic proficiency to identify and analyze theoretical and practical problems, as well as to implement actual solutions. The content is comprised of three pillars: subjects that are unique to HR, organizational, behavioral and managerial aspects, and business comprehension.

The program focuses on the integration of academic and practical knowledge through a set of meetings with HR managers who bring field-experience, business game simulation and courses taught by field men and women.

We seek to have classes where students come from a wide range of organizations, reflecting the broad range of the sector. The program is built to encourage participants to share their varied managerial experience and knowledge with their peers.

Successful graduates are eligible for a Master’s degree in Business administration—MBA, with the specialization in strategic human resource management.

Unique Program characteristics
