Course summary

Organisations thrive on the strength of their people. As a human resource, people manager, you play an essential role. GCU's MSc Human Resources Management prepares you for the ethical, cultural, legal, operational and strategic aspects of human resource management - while giving you a global outlook and an understanding of responsible leadership. This way you'll be ready for success - and support the common good to make a positive impact.

The programme is one of only several in the UK to be accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and aligned to the US Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) standards. It's available on a part-time and full-time basis, offering flexibility for career-focused professionals and recent graduates alike.

The curriculum brings together critical analysis of leading theories and trends in human resources with relevant industry practice from the real world. You'll develop skills that will be practical and valuable in a range of contemporary specialist and generalist HRM/people manager roles.

  • Expand your expertise of niche and specialised topics in HR
  • Develop the expertise to effectively manage people in a diverse national and international environment
  • Study contemporary theory of human resource management
  • Apply theory to practice through case-studies and investigative projects

Full-time students will also complete an industry placement in a human resources function. This work placement ties into a hands-on research project, so you can bring together everything you've learned through a Business Investigation Report (PG Diploma) or HRM Research Project (Masters) - an accomplishment that's especially valuable to employers.

Part-time students will also have the opportunity to add value to their own work or organisation through a Business Investigation Report (PG Diploma) or HRM Research Project (Masters).

Your career

Our graduates are leaders and change-makers, successful and socially driven. They are competitive candidates for jobs in human resources in the UK and internationally. Recent graduates have enjoyed a high rate of success in a diverse range of sectors with companies such as Morgan Stanley, Marks and Spencer, NHS Scotland , ScottishPower and Sky BSB. Graduates of the part-time programme have advanced their careers through internal and external promotion.

You will be intellectually challenged by a specialist staff with a background in a range of national and international organisations, including some well-known blue-chip giants. For a human resources professional, the insight you'll develop at GCU is essential.
