NUS Business School launches new Master's programme

Teacher Insights

The National University of Singapore (NUS) Business School has launched a new Master of Science (MSc) in Human Capital Management & Analytics (MSc HCMA) programme to meet industry demand for human resource (HR) professionals skilled in data analytics. Organisations today are leveraging technology to draw actionable business intelligence from data. For the HR function, this means using analytics to gain insights about their workforce and its capabilities. It is also critical for HR professionals to be able to identify talent with relevant skills to meet business needs, especially in an uncertain economic landscape.

The one-year full-time programme, targeted at young professionals with less than two years of working experience, includes modules on HR technology, HR core competencies such as compensation management and behavioural competencies such as managerial skills. With an emphasis on strategic thinking, design thinking and analytical skills, the programme trains students to make informed HR decisions from a broader perspective, bearing in mind societal and industrial trends. The programme also provides experiential learning opportunities through industry engagement and internships.

Applications are now open for the programme that will start in January 2022 and aims to admit about 35 students for the first cohort.
