In the Human Resource Management study program, you will learn how to “make room” for modern management models, which are more flexible, practical, and certainly more humane. The studies are postgraduate, lasting one year (4+1) or 60 ECTS credits. A prerequisite for enrollment is that the student has completed higher education with a total of 240 ECTS credits.

Human Resource Management can be defined as managing work and people with the aim of achieving desired results. This is a key part of every organization, where high performance of the individuals involved in the organization, as well as the organization’s goals, are equally prioritized.

Master's degree

Available at Sveti Nikole and Bitola.

In modern organizations, among all fundamental resources (raw materials, machines, capital, people), the focus is consciously placed on people. Human Resource Management is a complex process, closely intertwined with other aspects of business and serves as a strategic partner in contributing to the achievement of set goals.

The studies will enable you to gain knowledge about the diverse activities and functions of human resource management, plan the necessary number and structure of employees, analyze and design jobs and workplaces, recruit, select, and deploy employees, as well as develop the potential of each employee.

You will understand why motivation at work is important and how it is stimulated, why organizational culture is important and its continuous improvement, how power is distributed within the organization, why political processes exist and how they should be organized.

The one-year studies include 6 required subjects that students must pass. From the offered 6 elective subjects, students choose only 2.

Upon completion of the studies and the preparation of the master’s thesis, you will earn the professional title of Master in Organizational Sciences (study program in Human Resource Management).
