Welcome to the Department of Human Resource Management's webpage.

As an academic department, we aim to provide cutting-edge, nationally and internationally significant research that contributes to innovative knowledge. The department boasts with six NRF-rated researchers, highlighting our research standing nationally and internationally. Our academics are well equipped and specialised with various methodologies, which benefits our students interested in expanding their research skills.

The Department of Human Resource Management provides applicable, progressive and contemporary programme content to our students at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. We offer quality-driven programmes linked to the needs of the labour market and other relevant external stakeholders. Our MCom Industrial and Organisational Psychology program is accredited by the Professional Board of Psychology (Health Professions Council of South Africa) and the Human Resource Management and Labour Relations undergraduate and postgraduate degrees with the South African Board for People Practices. We received re-accreditation from both entities in 2023.

The Department uses an Advisory Board, which consists of industry experts, to assist with the quality control of programme content at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. We are committed to delivering competent employees with the necessary expert knowledge to address critical employee-related issues in organisations and the resilience to adapt to the changing needs and trends in the world of work.

We can assist you in becoming a future leader in industrial and organisational psychology, human resource management or labour relations. We offer you the opportunity to become a scholar of note and to be part of a network of academics and industry partners striving for excellence in research and practice.
