The BABA-HRM is a 4-year program designed to produce graduates who are ready to embark on professional career paths in human resources and related professions or to pursue graduate studies in the area of HRM. The program is aligned to local labour market needs as identified by the SBMIT stakeholders. The first year of the degree includes courses to provide students with a foundation in business administration (accounting, business, human resources, computer applications, statistics) essential to
an HRM degree student. In the second and third year of studies, students will complete specialized HR courses in recruitment and selection, occupational health, safety, environment (OSHE) and disability management, managing people and organizations, compensation and benefits, human resource planning and HR analytics and benchmarks as well as economics, ethics and labour law courses.
In the fourth year of the program, students will further develop their analytical skills, and deepen their knowledge of HRM through courses in strategic management, leadership and change management and HRM for continuous improvement, human resource planning, compensation and benefits, human resource information system (HRIS) analytics, current topics in HRM, and psychology in HRM. In the fourth year, as is common in an applied degree program (MPHEC, 2019, p.2) students will integrate and synthesize their acquired knowledge in the exploration of specialized areas of HRM through the completion of a semester-long capacity planning and labour force engineering project and a two-semester long dissertation or capstone project. Embedded in the program is the gradual building of specialized knowledge in the area of HRM to develop work-ready graduates.
