The MSc in Human Resources Management and Organizational Consulting is a full-time programme designed to provide students with a truly transformative experience. Taken within Iscte Business School, this programme combines the teaching of advanced HR knowledge with the connection to the business reality, whilst encouraging the personal development of the students

It is widely known that in reaction to the technological evolution, organizations have been basing their competitiveness on intangible factors in which human involvement plays a key role.
