Leadership and Human Resource Management (LHR)


Double Degree with

CMMU’s Master in Leadership and Human Resource Management (LHR) is the first international Master Degree Program in people management offered in Thailand. It differs from the “people processing” approach to HR traditionally taught and practiced. Instead, we develop graduates who possess business acumen and therefore can fulfill a leadership role for people management in Asia’s private and public sector organizations.

Our students learn how successful enterprises manage human resources in order to create value. The program provides an applied understanding of how successful businesses operate through people, corporate culture, and organizational structure to create high performing organizations. In particular, our internationally regarded HR Consulting Practice course is unique in Asia. The major will equip you with practical experience and insights into how to develop a high performing workforce in Asia and elsewhere.

Double Degree

CMMU MM(LHR) program has developed an agreement with Macquarie University's Faculty of Business to allow CMMU MM(LHR) students to pursue the Macquarie Master of International Business (MIB) in Sydney, as their second degree, on a fast track right after finishing their courses at CMMU.  This means CMMU MM(LHR) students can choose to have a double degree [MM(LHR)/MIB] or a single degree [MM(LHR)] as they wish. CMMU MM(LHR) students with a bachelor degree in a business related field can complete the MIB degree by taking only 6 courses at Macquarie.
