The MiM is a new hybrid degree program that is designed to develop leadership skills related to the management and development of human capital within organizations. The business world is changing rapidly and profoundly - whether it’s big data, digitalization, the connected company/ecosystem, or new business models. Companies are facing major opportunities: the future of production, sales and service concepts are all open for disruption. However, concentrating solely on ‘technical’ issues ignores another key success factor: the ability to attract, hire, retain, improve and organize talent. This program will equip students to help create an organization, including an HR system, that supports and aligns with business strategy.
