Best MSc Human Resource Management in the Netherlands - Higher Education Guide Masters 2018 

How do you keep your employees motivated? How do you optimize team performance? And how do you strategically align human resources with the goals of the organization?

The Master of Science in Human Resource Management (HRM) aims to graduate students who are able to define, analyze, and evaluate problems and issues related to the management of work and employment of people in organizations. In the MScHRM you will gain academic knowledge and skills to consider and explore how HRM policies and practices can be developed and applied to ensure the availability, employability, commitment and vitality of employees needed to accomplish organisational goals. You will learn to do this by taking an evidence-based, scientific approach. This will prepare you for a professional HR career in any type of organization.

In the one-year Master's degree program in HRM you follow courses that cover both a strategic and a behavioural perspective of HR. You will learn to match the supply and demand of labour, both at a macro and micro-level, and to anticipate internal and external changes that affect the management of work and people in an organization. You will learn about factors that play a role this process (such as law, pay, leadership, and teams) and will also have the possibility to expand this with other topics (for example, technological development, internationalization of business, or business ethics). You complete the programme by performing research and writing a thesis.
