Are you looking to work in Human Resource Management (HRM) within a multinational company or transnational organisation? This course covers five core activities of HRM – training and development, recruitment and selection, performance management, rewards, and employee relations – with deep awareness of cultural sensitivity and what it takes to be effective in the international arena.
The course is aligned with the academic requirements of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). On completion of certain elements you’ll have achieved the equivalent of the CIPD Advanced Diploma, allowing you to apply for an appropriate level of professional CIPD membership.
We welcome new graduates of any discipline, as well as applicants who already have significant work experience. We’ll develop you as a leader and manager who can add value to organisations’ most important resource, which is their people.
The course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was ‘Business School of the Year’ at The Times Higher Education Awards 2015.
Learn From The Best
Newcastle Business School has a global reputation for delivering some of the best business management education in the UK. We are part of an elite group of less than 1% of business schools worldwide with double accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) in business and accounting.
Our staff are actively pushing at the frontiers of knowledge and generating new concepts and insights. Over 40% of our publication outputs and 60% of our impact case studies have been assessed as internationally excellent or world leading. The quality of our research, teaching and engagement with business were among the factors that led to Newcastle Business School being named ‘Business School of the Year’ at the Times Higher Education Awards 2015.
Teaching And Assessment
Your tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including lectures, seminars, workshops and tutorials. As this is a masters course there is a major element of independent learning and self-motivated reflection.
Teaching is backed up by a well-designed support system that helps ensure a successful learning journey. We make sure that extensive feedback, from both tutors and peers, is built into the course.
Our assessment strategy is based on our understanding that everyone has different needs, strengths and enthusiasms. Assessment methods include personal development planning, group and peer assessments, portfolios, reflective reports, and the masters dissertation.
As a masters student you’ll develop your research skills to a new and higher level. Your research supervisor will help you submit a proposal for your masters dissertation, which you’ll complete by the end of the final semester.
There will be a specific ‘Research Methods’ module that will address how to engage with published research, how to produce new knowledge, and options for methods of enquiry. These topics will be further explored by module tutors and your personal guidance tutor.
Throughout your course you’ll be an active participant in the ongoing research agenda that’s at the heart of Newcastle Business School. With conferences and research events regularly taking place, and with staff discussing their own research as it relates to the topics you’ll study, there’s a strong emphasis on engaging in up-to-date enquiry-based learning.
Give Your Career An Edge
You’ll have an edge when it comes to applying for jobs or promotions because of the links between our curriculum and the academic requirements of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). Your knowledge will be up-to-date and highly relevant. You’ll achieve the equivalent of the CIPD Advanced Diploma, which will open the door to applying for CIPD chartered status as a Member or Fellow.
The ‘Developing Self as an HR Leader’ module will be an opportunity for you to analyse your personal strengths and areas for development. A further module, ‘Enhancing Employability and Career Development’, will build on this analysis and provide opportunities for self-development. As part of the process, our Careers and Employment Service will offer a range of workshops, one-to-one advice, and networking opportunities. By the end of the course you will have a comprehensive and evidenced understanding of the skills, abilities and attributes that you will be able to offer to employers.
The normal entry requirement is one of the following: An honours or CNAA degree; Newcastle Business School's Foundation Certificate in Management Development (see non-graduate applicants); An equivalent professional qualification with 2.5 years managerial/supervisory experience
