An organisation succeeds or fails by the quality of its workforce, and it’s the role of Human Resources to ensure that the right people are in the right roles. Human Resource Directors are well remunerated for their responsibilities, typically earning between £75,000 and £100,000.
The Sunderland Business School has a suite of seven MBA qualifications. MBA (HRM) combines the management and leadership grounding of the flagship MBA course with an additional focus on human resource management.
The Sunderland Business School is an excellent place to study for this prestigious qualification. We are a member of The Association of Business Schools, and our research in Business is classed as ‘world leading’ in the latest Research Excellence Framework. In addition, our business courses are best in the North East for course satisfaction, satisfaction with teaching and satisfaction with feedback, according to the Guardian University Guide 2015.

This MBA course will teach you to apply the best of international business concepts and models to deliver outstanding results in the workplace. You will develop your strategic knowledge, functional competence and problem-solving ability, and enhance your leadership capabilities. In addition to the core elements completed by all our MBA students, you will also complete a specialist module: either ‘International Human Resource Management’ or ‘Organisation Development and Change’. You will also undertake a dissertation related to human resources.
At Sunderland, we focus on problem-solving ability and linking theory to real-world challenges. As part of this, you will visit UK companies, and learn from guest speakers who share their practical business experiences. The networks you develop will become invaluable to you when you graduate and embark on your career in a senior role in human resource management.
