About the program

In the continuously changing company context, the role of HR evolves as well. The business expects HR specialists who can also think strategically, so they can meet the new challenges of tomorrow.

The Master in HR Management is an established value at Antwerp Management School. The program is directed at students who are in possession of a Master’s degree and who have an outspoken interest in Human Resources. The program focuses on hands-on, strategic and commercial aspects and therefore goes much further than mere personnel management.

During this program HR specific courses like labor psychology, labor law and labor sociology are alternated with broader management courses in the context of the organizationlike strategy, ICT, and finance. The program links a set of practical skills to academic knowledge input. As a student you are challenged to sharpen your communicative, ethical and teamworking skills. The link with the HR practice is highly guarded by the input of several guest lecturers from the HR world.

During the consulting assignment, you will be put to work as a junior consultant for eight weeks to solve a current HR business case of a start-up, SME or multinational. This consulting assignment is the icing on the cake of the Master HRM, seeing as the hands-on advising role builds a bridge to the practice. 

HR Consulting Bootcamp

The aim of this residential Consulting Bootcamp is submerging the MHRM students in a “consultancy” mindset for 4 days. It is centered on consulting and commercial management skills. This seminar also reinforces the (chance to a) subsequent influx of students into the labor market as (internal/external) consultants.


Through our electives, students are able to tailor their AMS studies by choosing one of the following three classes:

  • Transforming Business

  • Doing Business in Emerging Economies

By adding one of these general and hot management courses, students can give their AMS journey a personal touch!
