What will you study?

Following an induction programme that prepares you for intensive study, you will evaluate various external influences on HRM practice in organisations – from developments in Europe to employment law, ethical issues and social responsibility.

You will gain an advanced understanding of human behaviour in organisations, the role of HRM in enhancing organisational and management performance, strategic HRM approaches, learning and development processes, reward management, employee relations and employment law, and people resourcing issues and techniques.

HR and management reports

You will complete a management report (dissertation) that involves primary research into an HR issue. This meets CIPD requirements and develops the practical skills you need to excel as an HR professional. This research can be carried out with an organisation in the UK or overseas. Our students have provided management reports for host organisations such as Transport for London, Prudential and Whirlpool Corporation. We can offer assistance to students looking for a host organisation.

Assessment

You will be assessed using a variety of group and individual exercises, including role plays, coursework, and unseen exams in addition to your management report (dissertation).
