About the MSc programme

The MSc Human Resources and Organisations is a challenging one-year programme designed to prepare students for outstanding careers in people management and human resources.

Grounded in LSE’s critical and analytical approach to learning, the programme provides a unique bridge between theory and practice. Not only will you develop critical thinking skills as an adaptive, innovative and strategic manager, but you will also gain a clear understanding of the practical issues which organisations face today in managing individuals and workforces.

You will also have the opportunity to acquire valuable experience and industry contacts with a real-world independent consulting project with an external client, through our Links Scheme. The Scheme enables students to apply their learning in practice during the programme, and past projects have worked with a broad range of clients such as HSBC, Accenture and Revlon.

All students will gain core knowledge in the general foundations of HR management and strategy. Building on this foundation, students will then develop their learning into three distinct streams, offering the opportunity to specialise according to your specific career goals and interests:

Human Resource Management (HRM) stream

International Employment Relations (IER) stream

Organisational Behaviour (OB) stream
