Course summary

Overview

Our Human Resource Management MA course aims to extend your understanding of business and personnel and the impact their management can have on successful organisations.

The management and development of human resources is a challenging task in any organisation. As the rapid pace of technological change continues, markets expand internationally and legislation becomes increasingly complex, the need to ensure both businesses and their personnel adapt accordingly has become ever more important.

This Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) accredited course is designed for those who want to pursue senior level careers in human resource management (HRM). Please see the Accreditation and Professional Recognition section for further details. We aim to cover the essential theoretical knowledge, intellectual frameworks and practical skills required by today’s employers in a range of business contexts. This is supported by opportunities to learn from guest speakers drawn from the HR profession (subject to availability) and study in an internationally diverse environment.

Course information

Human Resource Management (HRM) examines the processes and principles associated with the management of work and people. HR professionals and managers operate within increasingly complex and changing organisational and contextual circumstances, whether in the market, public or ‘third’ sectors irrespective of the size of their organisations or the types of goods or services provided.

This programme of study has been designed to meet and reflect the CIPD’s current professional standards and expectations, designed to broaden your awareness of HR generalist and specialist functions in a UK and international context, considering how internal and external context impact upon HRM, the role of the HR practitioner and how HRM can lead to better work and better working lives. Please see the Accreditation and Professional Recognition section for further details.

The course aims to help you develop a range of academic and employability skills, alongside HRM specific knowledge and understanding in line with the current CIPD requirements. Please see the Accreditation and Professional Recognition section for further details. Modules are also designed to offer experience of applied HR in practice, by developing HR policy or training solutions as part of your learning experience should you wish to develop a specialised focus.

Career prospects

Within an internationally diverse learning environment, upon successful completion of the course you should gain a clear understanding of a broad range of HR, managerial and business principles, practices and competencies.

Upon successful completion of the course, you should develop strong analytical and problem-solving skills, and become a reflective HR professional with an appreciation of how properly conducted research can enhance your performance as a future manager.

The design of the course is aimed at helping you select and focus on specific specialist areas of HRM or HRD, depending on your career specific aspirations within the human resources field. There will be opportunities to work with employers on problem-based assessments, providing you with the opportunity to gain experience producing policy documents relevant to the changing world of work.
