Why study Strategic Human Resource Management?

This programme has been specifically designed to offer you the opportunity to become critically aware of the
holistic nature and role of human resources in the modern business environment. The focus is on the strategic input that human resource management (HRM) has in the current global economy. You will tackle such issues as diversity, reward and performance, managing culture and the HRM role in leading change. We also offer you the opportunity to put your developing skills to the test in a ‘live’ project, as team members working with the MBA students. The companies involved in these projects are both local and international businesses.

York St John Business School has a growing reputation for attracting a strong and diverse international student group, bringing a rich cultural base to our programmes of study.
