If you are looking to launch or accelerate your career within Human Resource Management, this programme will give you a high-level understanding of contemporary developments in this dynamic sector, whilst developing advanced skills to succeed in the global workplace.

Through a series of bespoke modules, you will cover all aspects of HRM practice including recruitment and selection, leadership and performance management, and approaches to HRM in an international context. You will also have the opportunity to take part in residential study courses, allowing you to challenge and collaborate with your peers in an engaging environment outside of the traditional classroom setting.

The course content of this Masters has been designed to map on to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development’s (CIPD’s) advanced learning outcomes, providing you with the opportunity to complete these and become a member.

You are able to complete a Postgraduate Diploma, leading to the CIPD accreditation, in just 9-months full-time as a stand-alone qualification, or take the MSc which contains the taught element of the Postgraduate Diploma and finishes with a dissertation.

The programme is suitable for both full-time and part-time study, with part-time students completing the Postgraduate Diploma qualification over 21 months or the full MSc programme over a period of 24 (fast-track) / 30 months.

Study abroad and gain a second Masters qualification

Spend your first year at Exeter and a second year at another world class international institution, resulting in two Masters degrees and the opportunity to expand your knowledge even further. We offer three fantastic Double Degree options with:

  • Grenoble Ecole de Management in France
  • EBS University of Business and Law in Germany
  • Fudan University School of Economics in China

The opportunity to study with Fudan is specific to MSc EconomicsMSc Economics & Econometrics and MSc Financial Economics programmes. For more information on Double Degrees and other postgraduate study abroad opportunities, visit the Business School’s Study Abroad webpages.

Programme Structure

This programme is available for study in both full-time and part-time formats and students can complete either the 180 credit Masters programme or the 120 credit Diploma programme. The Diploma programme contains all of the taught elements of the Masters programme and can be completed in 9 months full-time or 21 months part-time.

The dissertation element of the programme is undertaken between June and September by students on the full-time MSc programme or during the ten months following the completion of the taught element of the programme for part-time (30 month) students on the MSc programme.

Students on the part-time 24 month fast-track variant cover the same subjects and assessments as those on the longer standard programme. They do so, however, in a shorter, more concentrated time frame. This involves attending classes on two afternoons a week for a period in the second term and starting to work on the dissertation a year earlier than those who are enrolled on the 30 month programme.

Please note that programme structures may be subject to change.

Learning and teaching

Our postgraduate taught programmes utilise a range of teaching methods including lectures, seminars and tutorials.

Lectures

The aim of lectures is to give you information on ideas that are central to the module and to help you in developing your understanding of complex ideas. Many of the teaching materials for lectures are made available to you electronically to accompany the notes you take during the lecture. Lectures are given by a range of staff members, including leading professors, who integrate their latest research findings into the teaching that you receive. Guest lecturers, including members of industry, also contribute to some modules.

Seminars and tutorials

Seminars and tutorials involve an in-depth exploration of the issues covered in lectures as well as giving you the opportunity to discuss various concepts and theories and receive feedback on your written assignments.

Assessment

Modules are assessed through a mixture of group work, coursework, project work and examinations; the weighting of each of these components will vary according to the academic requirements of the module. Examinations are normally held at the end of the module, in January and May/June.
