What will I learn?

The Human Resources Management (HRM) Concentration has been recognized as the leading human resources degree programme in Hong Kong in recent university ranking surveys. It provides a focus on human resources management, combining rigour of a business degree with exposure to the business arena in order to prepare students for the workplace challenges they will encounter in both local and international corporations.

Salient Features

  • The HRM Concentration furnishes students with comprehensive knowledge to prepare for the HR profession, including recruitment and selection, human resources development, performance appraisal, reward management, labour relations, and labour law.
  • The HRM Mentoring Programme enables students to gain first-hand knowledge about the world of work and to start building their personal business networks through interactions with their mentors, who are senior HR executives.
  • Students can apply their academic knowledge and skills in an actual work environment by enrolling in Business Internship, an HRM Concentration elective course. The course allows them to work as company interns for a semester while at the same time gaining academic credits.
  • Students can pursue additional graduation options including Double Concentration within BBA, or a Minor in non-business discipline.
