Course summary

The MSc Human Resources and Organisations is a challenging one-year programme designed to prepare students for outstanding careers in people management and human resources.

Grounded in LSE’s critical and analytical approach to learning, the programme provides a unique bridge between theory and practice. Not only will you develop critical thinking skills as an adaptive, innovative and strategic manager, but you will also gain a clear understanding of the practical issues which organisations face today in managing individuals and workforces.

You will also have the opportunity to acquire valuable experience and industry contacts with a real-world independent consulting project with an external client, through our Links Scheme. The Scheme enables students to apply their learning in practice during the programme, and past projects have worked with a broad range of clients such as HSBC, Accenture and Revlon.

All students will gain core knowledge in the general foundations of HR management and strategy. Building on this foundation, students will then develop their learning into three distinct streams, offering the opportunity to specialise according to your specific career goals and interests:

  • Human Resource Management (HRM) stream
  • International Employment Relations (IER) stream
  • Organisational Behaviour (OB) stream

Teaching and assessment

Courses are taught in lecture and class or seminar format. Lectures introduce the core theoretical and technical concepts whilst their associated classes allow students to discuss and apply these concepts through exercises and in-depth study. Seminars allow for the focused study of key concepts in a more informal style and often involve presentations by students on selected course materials. Many teachers adopt a variety of teaching methods to deliver their courses such as class exercises, team presentations, individual or group work, or case study discussions.

Careers

Career development with the MSc Human Resources & Organisations

The HRO programme will develop your intellectual and practical skills as a talented and well-rounded manager of human resources within organisations, with the ability to thrive and innovate with challenges in today’s complex and fast-moving business world.

With a strong foundation of knowledge in general HR management, plus specialist knowledge from your chosen stream, and practical skills developed with case studies and practical projects, you will graduate with a unique and well-rounded portfolio of skills and knowledge to set you apart in the job market. Your practical and professional management skills will be developed and polished during the programme, including communication and presentation skills, team working, cultural intelligence gained from close collaboration with classmates from around the world, and an opportunity for client management experience from the Links Scheme project.
