About Staff Development
Masters degrees in Staff Development equip postgraduates to manage and develop an organisation’s workforces. This can include specialist areas such as staff training, feedback and assessment.
Courses range from taught MA and MSc degrees, to research oriented MRes programmes and professional MBA courses. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree; though relevant work experience may be necessary in some cases.
Through theory and practical frameworks, you will learn how to lead and develop a company’s human resources (HR) to effectively deploy business strategies and organisational changes.
You will consider how to undertake these developments whilst maintaining corporate social responsibility (CSR) – an ethical approach to business development ensuring positive implications for business stakeholders, including the public.
Strategic analysis is a dominant theme on these courses, providing you with a means to understand why certain methods and approaches create differences in performances between businesses and industries.
A masters in this field will make you suitable for positions in HR management, or leadership and management of a given organisation. You might also branch into consultancy for a particular industry, or follow less traditional routes into youth and community work.
