XLRI Jamshedpur and HR consulting firm, SHRM have joined hands to launch an integrated HR executive certificate programme. The programme will provide working professionals a comprehensive understanding of human resource management and will prepare them for HR leadership roles as well. It will also help the participants in their preparation for the global SHRM certification exams – SHRM-CP and SHRM- SCP.

The five-month programme will be delivered through interactive virtual classroom sessions (3 hours a week), allowing active interactions between fellow students and faculty. The course is meant for those on the lookout for convenient weekend schedules to upgrade their knowledge and skills without missing out on their corporate experience.

Students will be provided access to course presentations, projects, case studies, assignments and other reference material on virtual social learning platform. They can further raise their questions and doubts either real time during the live class or offline through the cloud campus.

“We are delighted to partner with XLRI to launch this unique programme. The partnership signifies an evolution in the HR certification industry," said Achal Khanna, CEO, SHRM India. "It is the first step to provide an exclusive opportunity of dual certification from two of India’s leading HR institutes, XLRI and SHRM India." Educational services provider - Talentedge will offer the social online platform to meet programme schedules.

The programme is targeted for MBA graduates with a minimum of 1 year experience or graduates with a minimum of 2 years work experience in the field of HR. "With lectures imparted by faculty of XLRI and Industry experts from India and abroad, the programme will fill the void in HR education needs in India,” added R.K. Premarajan, Professor of OB & HR at XLRI.

The course will be a fully online interactive programme and will be delivered using ‘direct to device’ technology (by Talentedge).

Students who successfully clear the internal assessments, built in throughout the programme, along with the requisite attendance will be awarded a certificate from XLRI. The programme is scheduled to start from 16 August this year, and fees for the same are Rs 85,000 plus taxes.
