The Course

Using critical analysis, self-reflection and problem-solving techniques, the MSc Human Resource Management (HRM) degree provides students with the opportunity to learn how to develop and implement creative and strategic HRM solutions that drive organisational performance.

Professional accreditation, industry links and a business focus make this programme ideal if you are currently involved in human resources or are interested in pursuing a career in this area.

With distinct academic and practitioner perspectives you will have the chance to discover new ways of managing people in the modern workplace, taking into consideration people development and employee relations and understanding the broader business concerns of senior management. You will be challenged to think critically upon matters of organisational management and self-reflection.

This programme provides the opportunity to gain a professionally recognised qualification that will assist in meeting the increasing requirement of HRM practitioners to hold a Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) qualification.

As well as entitling you to the CIPD membership level of Associate, this programme provides the necessary supporting evidence of professional knowledge to apply for upgrading CIPD Chartered Membership, subject to associated work experience.

This is based on an allocation of 150 learning hours per 15 credit module minus 36 hours teaching = 108 hours for private study per module throughout the academic year. (The amount of time needed may vary throughout the year).
