Course summary

Course overview:

Organisations are only as good as the people who work within them. If you want to take a central role in shaping organisational culture, then this course is for you.

You gain an understanding of the complex and changing context of human resource management (HRM), and the importance of resilience and sustainability in turbulent business environments. You develop an awareness of contemporary HRM issues in readiness for being a future-thinking practitioner with cutting-edge knowledge of human resource developments.

This course develops your knowledge and skills as a HRM practitioner, responsible for growing an agile and ethical workforce. You take the lead on managing the recruitment and development of employee talent within organisations, employing the right balance of staff in terms of skills and experience, and maximising employee and organisational performance.

Professional accreditation:

Membership of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) is highly valued and widely accepted as a requirement of HR practice by employers. You are encouraged to apply for student membership of the Institute within the first few weeks of study. CIPD membership grades are dependent on knowledge and behaviours. This MA meets the underpinning knowledge requirements for the CIPD Professional membership grades, however the membership grade awarded by CIPD is also based on your practical workplace experience of HR. Completion of the MA allows you to apply for the CIPD professional membership level of Associate Member.

How you learn:

An interactive workshop approach is used to develop understanding through lectures, individual and group activities, case studies and presentations. For part-time students modules are delivered on a one day per week basis supported by guided learning materials accessed through the University’s virtual learning environment.

How you are assessed:

Assessment methods vary according to the module studied and include examinations, assignments and presentations.

Career opportunities:

Effective and professional human resource management is increasingly recognised by organisations as a key area in achieving business success. Consequently there is high demand for highly trained and skilled HR professionals. Our experience, and that of our past students, strongly suggests that the MA Human Resource Management at Teesside University Business School can provide that unique advantage in the jobs market.
