For 40 years, our courses have been recognised in independent audits as among the best taught and managed postgraduate HRM programmes in Britain. We have one of the largest, longest established, and most diverse teams of HRM subject experts of any university in Britain.
There is growing worldwide demand for professionals and leaders who can devise and apply creative human resource solutions across differing national and international contexts. Success in these roles requires high level mastery of comparative HR practice, combined with sensitivity to context and insight into both employers' and employees' needs.
Our MSc in Human Resource Management (International) will equip you with a critical grasp of the issues, themes and challenges central to managing people, whatever the context. The course will suit you if you are seeking , or have already started, a career in managing people or as a specialist HR professional in any part of the world, including Europe and the UK. Its international focus is particularly relevant if your career plans involve working in:
•countries other than your own
•international organisations within your home country (including the UK), or
•home country organisations which emulate the highest standards of HRM practice worldwide.
If you are pursuing an HR career in the UK, we also offer a popular MSc in Human Resource Management, which is tailored to the needs of British HR professionals.
The high quality of human resource management teaching and research at Bristol Business School has been recognised by the British professional body for HR practitioners, the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. The course leads directly to Associate Membership of the CIPD and also satisfies the knowledge requirements for the higher grades of membership.

Strong links with industry
Alongside up-to-the-minute, practitioner-focused teaching, we will arrange regular opportunities for you to spend time in a local organisation shadowing the work of HR professionals. We also hold regular speaker events where you can hear from inspiring and influential HR professionals discussing leading-edge practice within their organisations.
A particular feature of this course is the very personal interest we take in your development. Using psychometric assessments, skills development workshops and a range of practical activities, we will profile your unique attributes, develop your strengths and offer extensive feedback on your progress throughout. If you need help with your English, we also offer English language and study skills classes free of charge.
