The Strategic People Management degree from University of New South Wales is designed to develop middle managers, particularly in people management. Middle managers are a key element of organisational change, but few university-level courses focus on their specific challenges.


This Strategic People Management degree from University of New South Wales provides students with an understanding of systems theory and its implications for implementation. Rather than looking at HR aspects as discrete elements, we integrate ideas to help develop strategies for developing and sustaining individual and organisational capability. 

The idea is to enable managers to interpret organisational strategy and develop appropriate, people-focused implementation plans.The program includes optional research project courses that enable students to produce a substantial piece of research-based scholarship during their degree.

Why choose this degree?

The Master of Strategic People Management is currently the only masters degree that it is designed for line managers who want to focus more on people management than general business. It has systems thinking and implementation as core ideas running through it, which also makes it different from most HR courses.

Who should choose this degree?

The Master of Strategic People Management is designed for postgraduate scholars and professional managers wanting a more advanced understanding of the concepts and principles that underpin strategic people management and effective leadership.
