Within the context of the globalisation of markets and of competition, human resources are an ever more decisive factor of competitive advantage for both companies and non-profit organisations. Read more

Within the context of the globalisation of markets and of competition, human resources are an ever more decisive factor of competitive advantage for both companies and non-profit organisations. With the progressive leveling of the fields of technological and process know-how, the individual is indeed the one true discriminating factor.

Ultimately, the individual’s competencies, motivations, innovation capabilities and overall professional performance quality determine an organisation’s success. From such a perspective, companies and institutions must equip themselves with experts capable of both fully understanding the central role of the individual and of overseeing the related managerial processes, such as: selection, hiring, training, communication, development and compensation.

On the other hand, modern human resources professionals cannot neglect the international dimension that all activities are increasingly taking on and must therefore be able, for example, to understand and handle global organisations’ diversity management dynamics and complexity profiles.

This structure provides working professionals an opportunity to benefit from an on-campus experience and to learn through the online medium while still meeting professional and personal responsibilities.

Residency
Students can expect the residency periods to be quite rigorous. The normal schedule for residencies is from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Homework, readings and team assignments are completed outside of these hours so it is recommended that students keep their evenings available for these activities.

Online Learning
The online portion of our Graduate Certificate programs takes place over the Internet. There are deadlines for assignments; however, students work through the requirements of the course at their own pace. Several different information delivery methods are used, including textbooks, articles, case studies, interactive learning and "chat" bulletin boards for corresponding with team members, who may be on the other side of the country. Students are assigned to a team during the first residency and continue to work together during the online courses.

The two online courses are taken consecutively and each course lasts for a period of 12 weeks. Each course requires a level of effort of approximately 17-23 hours per week. During the first online course, the amount of time required may be higher as students familiarize themselves with our online learning platform.

Dissertation

The modules are assessed by course work, group presentations and a time constrained examination. Some modules are assessed by course work only. The dissertation is assessed by a written report and a presentation. Each module is 100-200 of study hours, except for the dissertation, which should be 600 hours of study time.

Teaching and learning

A distinctive feature of the full-time Human Resources MSc programme's learning experience is that for half of the modules per semester students will probably share classes with practising HR professionals following the part-time Masters route. These students, typically aged 25 - 35, work in HR departments in London while studying for the professional CIPD qualification. This exposure to HR professionals considerably enhances the learning experience.

Placements

A placement isn't part of the programme but you'll be encouraged to seek work experience during the dissertation period, and will be supported by the teaching staff and the university.

Employability

The course provides a good grounding in HR issues, theories and practice and several modules are based on international professional standards. Successful students can enter a variety of HR roles, particularly the international market or within multinational companies in their country of practice.

Recent guest lectures include: CIPD Annual Lecture 2007 – Alison Bartholomew, National Health Service Litigation Authority and managing the Risk of People in Organisations.
