Course summary

Overview

Our postgraduate Human Resource Management (HRM) course builds on core human resource management theory and practice to examine the range of people management challenges which organisations face. The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).

To undertake this course you don't need to have previous work or study experience in the field of Human Resource Management. As part of the course we deliver teaching in the key concepts and practices of HRM, alongside developing the practical skills you need to become a successful HRM professional. In your final semester you'll also have the opportunity to do a consultancy case study, acting as a HR consultant to fictional companies, while solving realistic HR problems.

The University of Stirling Management School teaches you the need for thoughtful and ethical management practice, and this course is no exception. Ethics and considerate practice should be the focus of organisations and is the foundation for our course.

Course objectives

On successful completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Understand the internal and external environmental contexts of contemporary organisations within which managers, HR professionals, and workers interact.
  • Engage with contemporary research on employment and effective approaches to human resource practice.
  • Understand the link between people management practices and positive organisational outcomes.
  • Reflect on theory and professional practice from an ethical, professional, and responsible management standpoint.
