Program Objectives
Why an Executive Master in Strategic Human Resource Management?
Human Resource Management has recently acquired a central role in strategic
and organizational decisions, posing a critical challenge for organizations
worldwide. Organizations are increasingly called to face competitive challenges
like globalization in markets and sourcing, new technologies, cost reductions,
continuous change, corporate social responsibility, international mergers and
acquisitions, talent attraction and development.
Consequently, HR executives are called to take on the role of strategic business
partners at the top management level. HR managers must be capable of advising
top executives and leading the organization through continuous change.
The Executive Master in SHRM aims at addressing this most important need.
The goal of the Master is to develop high-potential HR professionals for the
most senior levels of HR positions, providing them with the skills and
knowledge to drive organizational performance through best practices in
Human Resource Management.
The Master places an in-depth emphasis on the business context of HR
management and leadership, focusing on the organizational and strategic issues
influencing HR decisions.
The Master is a stepping stone for high-potential HR managers wishing to take
their career development to a strategic level, setting new challenges to fully
exploit participants’ potential.

Target Participants
Who is the Program for?
The Executive Master is aimed at managers and professionals with significant
experience in HR or related functions, or managers and professionals with a
background in other functions, all in the process of taking on a role of increased
responsibility in the HR function.
The mission of the Program is to support high-potential managers and
professionals in developing the necessary competences to strengthen the
strategic and leadership role of HR.
The Master emphasizes the close relationship between HR management and
strategy, within an international setting which draws upon cutting-edge
research and practice to develop methodologies and tools.

Program Structure
The aim of the program is to maintain ongoing interaction between face-to-face
teaching and organizational practice, in order to better optimize situated learning.
The Program includes:
■   36 days of face-to-face teaching, including 6 Saturdays, designed around 8
    modules of 3-6 days. The modular approach, coupled with in-depth indivi-
    dual and team-based work, will allow individuals for a full immersion in class
    discussion while maintaining continuous contact with their organizations.
■   4 individual assignments, related to four core courses (People Strategy; HR
    Performance; Talent Acquisition and Development; Performance
    Management and Compensation), in which participants are required to apply
    insights and tools discussed in class to their organizational context, in order
    to measure their learning outcomes against companies’ everyday practice.
    Each participant will be supervised in the development of each project by
    Faculty members, via distance-learning tools. In addition to that, participants
    will receive feedback on each assignment. Individual assignments require a
    day-by-day effort in developing the projects for, approximately, 40 days of
    work in distance learning.
