Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) is collaborating with the Institute for Human Resource Professionals (IHRP) to launch two new MiniMasters™ programmes to develop talent in human resources (HR).
The MiniMasters in HR Thought Leadership aims to strengthen HR practitioners’ business, digital, and financial acumen, while the MiniMasters in Strategic HR Performance equips non-HR practitioners who are keen to take on a HR function in their organisations or to transit into a HR career with emerging HR concepts and ideas.
The two new programmes will be offered by the Nanyang Business School (NBS), and form part of NTU’s university-wide MiniMasters, a platform launched in 2020 to provide working adults and NTU alumni alternate and flexible pathways to upskill, boost their employability or pursue their intellectual enrichment through continuing education and training.
The IHRP is set up by the tripartite partners: the Ministry of Manpower (MOM), the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) and Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) to professionalise and strengthen the HR practice in Singapore.
As HR professionals play a key role in organisations, there is an urgency for a dynamic talent and work model that is capable of equipping them with future-ready skills quickly, especially against the backdrop of a rapidly changing digital landscape and in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
