MSc Human Resources and Organisations (with specialisation in Organisational Behaviour or Human Resource Management (CIPD) or International Employment Relations and Human Resource Management)


Course Description

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.

You will gain core knowledge in the general foundations of human resource management and strategy. Building on this foundation, you will then develop your learning into one of three specialist streams according to your specific career goals and interests: Human Resource Management, International Employment Relations, or Organisational Behaviour.

Graduate destinations

The programme is designed to prepare students for a range of careers in the fields of human resource management, organisational behaviour, and international employment relations.
Our students have gone on to work in human resource management, international management, and consultancy positions in the private and public sectors, as well as for labour unions and in academic and policy roles.

(Student Profile)

Lesley Henry

1832.jpg Having studied commerce as an undergraduate, I feel that my programme of study at LSE is an appropriate fit with my overall career goals, and will equip me with the tools to effectively blend the disciplines of commerce and employment relations. The programme allows for considerable flexibility with respect to course selection, which I consider to be a real plus. This lets students tailor their degree, and choose those courses that relate to his or her specific area of interest.

My decision to choose a programme at LSE was informed by the high calibre of the academic staff, the school's international reputation for excellence and the opportunity to live in London. Further, LSE provides many opportunities to participate in clubs and teams both within the LSE community as well as those in the London area at large. LSE also facilitates frequent speakers, visits and discussions led by world leaders and academics. These are all truly wonderful opportunities.

One of the greatest features of studying at LSE is the internationally diverse study body. This is especially beneficial while studying International Employment Relations, learning with and from people from all over the world. This presents a unique learning opportunity. LSE has provided me with the opportunity to live abroad and to develop contacts and friendships with people from all over the world. This experience has taken my education from a national level within Canada, to an international level, and for that I am grateful.
