The MSc HRM focuses on how the human resource function can develop high quality leaders and practitioners who make a positive and enduring difference to the well-being of individuals, organisations and society.
The programme emphasises HRM as an integral part of corporate strategy and demonstrates its links with other managerial activities.
Students will develop skills in problem solving, planning and the management of people, as well as expertise to deal with complex issues in HRM, make informed judgements in the absence of complete data and communicate effectively with peers and senior managers.
Modules covered in the programme include, People and Organisational Development, Labour Relation, The Organisational Context of Human Resources, Learning and Development, Employee Resourcing, Human Resource Management in an International Context.
The relevance of our programme content and focus to HR professionals, and the high level of academic rigour is demonstrated in our successful alignment with The Society for Human Resource Management’s (SHRM) HR Curriculum Guidebook. SHRM is an international HR membership organisation devoted to human resource management. Students can also elect to join the Society as student members for a nominal fee in order to enjoy access to the many resources and benefits offered through membership.
Students will have access to specialist knowledge in core areas of HRM and business, grounded in the latest research. You’ll learn from, reflect upon and apply this knowledge and understanding to your own professional practice in order to increase your credibility and add value to your organisation.
The entry requirement for this course is normally a Bachelor’s degree at 2:2 or above. The University may also consider lesser qualification if you can demonstrate sufficient work experience in the relevant field and industry.
If English is not your first language, you will need to undertake an approved English language test. You can discuss the available options with your personal academic consultant.
On completion of the MSc Human Resource Management programme, you will be equipped with the latest practices of HR Management and training as well as professional and practical knowledge that is scalable to any industry or company.
