Post-Graduate Diploma in Human Resource Management (PGD HRM)

Africa Training Institute is pleased to announce Post-Graduate Diploma in Human Resource Management (PGD HRM) Course. This is both an online and Distance Learning Course, which starts 1st of every month.

Overall Course Overview
This course is intended to provide a comprehensive account of the critical issues in human resource management, taking the reader from an introductory level to a relatively sophisticated understanding of an increasingly important topic. The Post Graduate diploma course has been significantly streamlined and updated to take account of the recent recession in western economies, the significance of the fast-developing countries such as China and India and the increasing importance of HRM in the public, non-profit and voluntary sectors.

The course takes a distinctive approach, locating the subject of HRM and its various perspectives within a wider international context. We recognize that participants in the course will come from a variety of backgrounds and in that sense we set out to understand the role and meaning of HRM from a number of practical and theoretical perspectives. Many employers place great value in the advanced knowledge and skills developed in a
postgraduate course, and much of the content covered will be of great benefit to professionals in other functions who are, or will be, responsible for managing people.
