The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has acknowledged that ALBA's MSc in Strategic Human Resource Management fully aligns with SHRM’s HR Curriculum Guidebook and Templates.
Human Resource Management is currently one of the fastest-growing management fields. Organizations are increasingly recognizing the strategic role of human capital for achieving significant business results, sustainable growth and innovation.
The ALBA MSc in Strategic HRM is designed for:
- The new generation of HR professionals that will act as strategic partners and effectively align people strategies with business strategies

Investment in Human Capital pays off:
Those companies with a highly engaged workforce improved operating income by 19.2% over a period of 12 months, whilst those companies with low engagement scores saw operating income decline by 32.7% over the same period (Towers Watson).
The lost productivity of actively disengaged employees costs the US economy $370 billion annually (Gallup Institute).
