The Department of Human Resource Management will provide the highest quality education to our students in the areas of Human Resource Management, Entrepreneurship, Management and Logistics or Supply Chain Management.
This will be achieved by:
- Systematically encouraging staff to improve their personal qualifications.
- Undertaking research, which identifies small business opportunities within the community with the aim of creating jobs and stimulating entrepreneurial activity amongst the unemployed.
- Undertaking relevant research projects within the community, which aim to assist SMMEs in developing sound human resource practices.
- To collaborate with industry experts in curriculum development, to ensure the most relevant, up-to-date subjects and assessment points.
- To cooperate with other institutions in curriculum development to ensure students have credits, which are portable and articulated.
- To ensure our programmes are consistently aligned with industry requirements in order to produce graduates who are not only employable, but also desirable.
