A Program which considers relationships in organisations, the process and understanding of management and the behaviour of people at work, in order to make the best use of people as valuable resources to the mutual benefit of all concerned.
This Program balances the personnel management oriented approach where emphasis is workforce-centred with importance given to the support, proper treatment and understanding of the workforce; and the human resource management oriented approach where emphasis is resource-centred and it is management needs for human resources that are given priority. It covers areas related to management, behavior, organization, and human resource.
The Program relates the study of human behaviour to that of management with an integrated view of theory and practice; it covers behavioural science and implications for management action; how performance may be improved through better understanding of human resources and effective management; and provides conceptual frameworks to better understand factors influencing patterns of behaviour in work organisations and the process of management.
