MA Human Resource Management

Course Description


The effective management and development of human resources is a challenging task in any work organisation. As the pace of technological change increases and organisations develop a greater international focus, the management and development of people in order to adapt to these changing conditions becomes ever more important.

The Human Resource Management MA course aims to enable students to progress in any career linked with the management and development of people.


Human Resource Management MA has been accredited by the most recognised professional HRM organisation in the world, namely the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). Upon successful completion of the MA HRM students will also be awarded the CIPD Advanced Level Professional Qualification. All HRM MA students will be required to become student members of CIPD at the start of the programme. The programme has been designed to meet and reflect the CIPD’s professional standards and expectations. It is aimed at individuals wishing to pursue or develop their professional careers within an HRM context. The course will provide students with the essential requirements needed to work within the broad context of people management and development.

Designed to offer a wide exposure to a range of organisations, the programme also includes a minimum of a six weeks work placement within the HRM department of an organisation in the UK. The work placement provides students with the unique opportunity to assess the theories introduced within the classroom, in the context of a specific work organisational environment.
