Course content

This top up course is aimed at those who hold the postgraduate diploma in Human Resource Development and Organisational Change and wish to further progress to a professional and a strategic level within the field of human resource development.

Why Wolverhampton?

The Business School currently holds devolved status from CIPD, which enables you to gain a professional CIPD qualification whilst studying for the MSc Human Resource Development and Organisational Change (top up). These levels of attainment are achieved through research which you can focus to your own organisation.

The course aims to develop students at advanced level for a professional career in HRD by developing knowledge and understanding of the disciplines of HRD and Organisational Change. This is achieved through honing critical reflective thinking and developing robust, independent, personal and professional development skills.

Completion of the course enables students to apply for professional Chartered Membership or Fellowship of the CIPD.

Career path

The CIPD is the foremost HR Institute in the world, and for anyone wishing to pursue or further their career within the field of HR or HRDOC, it is essential that a CIPD postgraduate qualification is obtained for those leading change and developing people in organisations.

Most organisations who recruit HR professionals require applicants to either hold a CIPD qualification or be studying to achieve one.

International, national and local recruitment to the field of HR is a growing industry and as such competition for employment is high. Our programme is a robust programme that has been highly commended by the CIPD for many years. More recently the Human Resource Development and Organisational Change pathway has been subject to nationally recognised awards for teaching innovation and programme innovation.

There are elements of training design and delivery incorporated within the programme, so as to enable students to be able to plan and prepare a business case for selling new ideas, concepts and products within an organisation. The core disciplines of internal and external marketing presentations are identical.

This course is essential for anyone engaged in the development of organisations through staff and stakeholders in current and future economic climates of change. Failure to understand the underpinning theories and practice of HR Development and Organisational Change will result in organisations failing to work in a proactive manner, become leaner and fitter, and maximise its human resource effectively and efficiently.

Graduates from the award should be able to operate effectively in strategic roles or in positions of strategic influence, but bring higher levels of expertise to bear than previously. They should also be able to move up their organisational hierarchy more quickly, or alternatively seek and secure employment in another organisation at a higher level, or set themselves up as an independent consultant.

What skills will you gain?

Synthesise relevant critical thinking through academic research completing an independent research project/dissertation at masters level.

Who accredits this course?
