BCom Human Resource Management

BCom (Human Resource Management) is a three-year full-time programme. A student-orientated approach is followed. Students are trained and guided to think and work independently in the field of human resource management, industrial psychology and labour relations. This programme is the first step in students’ academic preparation towards qualifying as human resource practitioners, industrial psychologists and employee relations practitioners. It also prepares them for registration with the South African Board for People Practice (SABPP). In their capacity as human resource practitioners, students will be responsible for matters such as the development of HR strategies and policies, human resource planning, the recruitment and selection of employees, the training and development of staff, labour relations and personnel administration. Organisations in both the public and private sectors usually have a human resource function and are in need of appropriate qualified professional candidates in this field. Registered human resource practitioners and industrial psychologists may also prefer to manage their own businesses as practitioners or consultants.
