Course content

The aim of the MSc in Human Resource Management (HRM) is to give you the knowledge, understanding and key skills that are required by today’s HR professionals and to enable you to effectively contribute to dynamic organisations.

Managing people – an organisation’s most valuable and often most costly resource - has for a long time been a key business challenge. Changing economic, financial, demographic, and political landscapes mean that the constitution of effective human resource management and how it may best be practiced is constantly evolving. Recent developments indicate clearly that the portfolio of HRM responsibilities within organisations is growing with the need for employee engagement with broader policies such as corporate social responsibility or work-life balance.

The programme has been designed to provide a combination of courses that will enable the professional development of future HR managers.

Programme structure

Learning will primarily be through lectures, set reading, class discussions, exercises, group-work assignments, problem solving in tutorials and case studies. Assessment methods include examinations, assignments, presentations or continuous assessment.

  • Demonstrate an understanding of key terms, theories/concepts and practices within the field of HRM.
  • Demonstrate competence in Development and Problem-Solving in the area of HR Management
