About the program
In the continuously changing company context, the role of HR evolves as well. The business expects HR specialists who can also think strategically, so they can meet the new challenges of tomorrow.
The Master in HR Management is an established value at Antwerp Management School. The program is directed at students who are in possession of a Master’s degree and who have an outspoken interest in Human Resources. The program focuses on hands-on, strategic and commercial aspects and therefore goes much further than mere personnel management.
After following this program, you will:
- have gained the necessary competences and skills to transfer to a proper job and career as HR professional;
- be able to apply the gained knowledge in different company and organizational contexts and be able to think strategically within the different domains of HR;
- have gained the necessary consulting skills to take on an advising HR role either internally or externally;
- be capable to reflect critically on current HR processes and procedures;
- be aware of your personal development and have gained concrete handles for this within an open feedback culture.
During this program HR specific courses like labor psychology, labor law and labor sociology are alternated with broader management courses in the context of the organizationlike strategy, ICT, and finance. The program links a set of practical skills to academic knowledge input. As a student you are challenged to sharpen your communicative, ethical and teamworking skills. The link with the HR practice is highly guarded by the input of several guest lecturers from the HR world. Furthermore, the eight week long consulting assignment builds the ultimate bridge to the HR reality.

Master thesis: Consulting assignment
During the consulting assignment, you will be put to work as a junior consultant for eight weeks to solve a current HR business case of a start-up, SME or multinational. This consulting assignment is the icing on the cake of the Master HRM, seeing as the hands-on advising role builds a bridge to the practice.
HR Consulting Bootcamp
The aim of this residential Consulting Bootcamp is submerging the MHRM students in a “consultancy” mindset for three days. It is centered on consulting and commercial management skills. This seminar also reinforces the (chance to) a subsequent influx of students into the labor market as (internal/external) consultants.

- You have a Master’s degree and no or limited work experience;
- You are Dutch-speaking;
- You are passionate about Human Resource Management and you want to dig deeper in the domain;
