Course summary

Why choose this course?

Our Human Resource Management MSc is perfect if you want to build and develop your career in human resources. It will give you a deep insight into leading, managing and developing people from different levels and perspectives. You will learn about the role of the HR profession and its role in relation to an organisation's strategic objectives and the broader environment. The MSc course has been designed to meet employers' needs and gives you the tools you need to succeed in a career in human resources. You will be taught by expert academics, leading researchers, alongside many guest speakers, visiting professors and fellows. Our Human Resource Management MSc top-up course provides a quick and flexible way for students who have completed a PgDip in an HR related field to 'top-up' to a full Human Resource Management MSc. The course is carefully designed to meet employers' needs and is recognised for its quality, giving you the tools you need to succeed in senior human resources roles, executive training and development roles. Kingston Business School is a Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) Approved Centre and this MSc course is accredited by the CIPD (Note: the MSc top up is not accredited).

What you will study

The taught part of the programme is normally during four weekends. While you are expected to be physically present on these four weekends, the dissertation supervisor meetings can be held online and via email.

After you graduate

This course can help graduates advance their careers in a variety of ways. Some may be interested in talent acquisition or performance and reward; others may pursue a career in organisational development, employee engagement or learning and development. Equally, some may prefer to pursue a more general HR practitioner position. Many alumni use the knowledge gained to perform at a higher level within the HR sector, either within their current industry or taking the opportunity to transition into a new role or sector. Others have successfully set up their own business as a career or HR consultant. Examples of well-known organisations our alumni have worked for include Unilever, Capgemini, Ogilvy & Mather Group, Hewlett Packard, HSBC, Surrey County Council, GSK, Sheraton Grand Hotel, Amazon, Apple, NHS, and Barclays Investment Bank (UK). The types of role our alumni have held vary greatly according to the individual's experiences, interests and area of expertise. A selection of positions includes: HR business partner; global HR manager; head of talent acquisition; head of HR; compensation & benefits manager; associate director ethics; HR officer; head of reward & HR services; international mobility manager; and head of people and culture.
