Human Capital Innovation (HCM588)


HCM588 Human Capital Innovation is an integrative course spread over two semesters. The purpose of the course is to expose students to the latest developments in the field by arranging a series of workshops and speaker sessions in which invited experts share their own innovations and insights from the human capital field. Students will be required to reflect on the insights provided and integrate the acquired knowledge with programme content and their own experiences. Students must attend a minimum number of SUSS-organised seminars in order to pass the course, although they are also encouraged to attend events organised by other IHLs or public/private sector organisations in Singapore, provided that the content is relevant to human capital management.
