The MA in Strategic Human Resource Management (HRM) course aims to provide experienced practitioners who are CIPD qualified with a challenging programme that develops their strategic competence. It is intended to provoke and challenge you in your thinking and expectations about how and why we manage people at work. The programme also challenges you to consider how different HRM approaches may be more effective in achieving corporate success.

The course is a 'top up' qualification intended to build upon the CIPD Postgraduate Diploma in HRM. It is designed as an extension programme linked to Continuing Professional Development. The programme is research oriented with the dissertation providing the 60 postgraduate level credits needed for you to attain a full Masters degree. An initial induction and then the option to participate in the Business Research Methodology sessions are the only 'fixed' times of on-campus attendance.

Course content

The dissertation is the essential component of this Masters course. It is a demonstration of your ability to research a topic using both primary and secondary research techniques. Considerable emphasis is placed on your ability to evaluate critically, to analyse, synthesise and develop a sustainable academic argument in the area of study, and to make significant comments on HRM in practice at the strategic level. You are supported by a personal tutor, knowledgeable in their chosen area of study and who will be available for support throughout the research.

There is also the option to participate in the Business Research Methodology sessions.

Industry links

We work closely with our local North Staffordshire and South Cheshire branch of the CIPD.

Graduate destinations

This course is ideal if you have ambitions to start your own business, are working in an existing organisation or already run your own company. You'll learn to identify new products, processes and markets, and adopt innovative techniques to exploit opportunities.

The course is supported by award-winning academics and an influential network of highly skilled entrepreneurs, giving you access to their expertise and experience as well as providing valuable connections for the future.

The Centre for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Studies is the focal point for enterprise education on campus at the University of Leeds. It provides exceptional research-based enterprise teaching and practical support.

The Centre can help you locate enterprise opportunities and get involved in entrepreneurial activities outside of your studies, such as joining a student enterprise group, starting a business, taking on a social project or entering a national competition.

You will also benefit from our excellent connections with business, locally, regionally and nationally. The Centre’s network of Enterprise Ambassadors provide real-world projects and deliver workshops as part of the programme. They come from a wide range of business sectors, helping you to understand how to apply your enterprise education in practice.

Course content

In year one you’ll explore successful enterprise and entrepreneurship and their role in society worldwide. You’ll explore how enterprise is seen around the world, and how different geographical and economic contexts create challenges for new ventures.

You’ll consider contemporary challenges and debates during guest lectures with successful entrepreneurs, hearing first-hand about their experience of the latest topics. You’ll also have the opportunity to apply what you have learned to your own business idea or an existing business, whilst drawing on their expertise.

In year two, you’ll take an in-depth look at social enterprises and alternative business models, including how best to grow an existing small business.

You’ll also work alongside our full-time students on a consultancy project for a local small-medium enterprise, building relationships with the founders and staff (you can read a student case study about a recent project). Some examples of recent projects include: ‘helping an ethical gifts retailer turn their sales performance around’; ‘undertaking a market and brand analysis for a luxury camping business’ and ‘researching the Jordanian and Indian market for a healthcare software company’.

You’ll be introduced to research methods, developing understanding of how to gain important market insights and analyse the viability of a business idea.

In the final semester of year two, you’ll complete the Enterprise Dissertation, an individual project that can be used to explore opportunities for your own business venture, develop a plan for growth in an existing business you are connected to, or to research in-depth an area of interest.
