Become a game changer

HR has grown into a strategic pillar that helps both the organization and its employees to make a sustainable transformation. If you opt for a master's degree in HRM, you choose a special career path in which you can help make a difference for people and organizations alike. At AMS we will provide you with the right luggage and mindset to give you a flying start.

Specific group dynamic

This program has a specific group dynamic. The values that reside in the broader HR community (respect, ownership, team spirit, flexibility, creativity, consideration…) are stimulated from the very beginning. Students actively liaise with and esta¬blish relationships with current HR/OD (top) professionals and program alumni.

In- company project

The icing on the cake of this master’s program is a real-life in-company project. For 8 weeks, you will work in teams of two or three students as on a consultancy project, assisted by an academic advisor. The different teams work intensively on a challenging business case and deliver a complete report with new, practical insights.
