Course summary

Introduction

Bristol Business School has been a leading provider of professional HRM education for nearly 50 years. With one of the largest teams of HRM experts, long-established links with the CIPD, and up-to-the-minute, practitioner-focused training, we are widely regarded as a leading name in the field.

Accreditations and partnerships: Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development

Imaginative and expertly-designed human resource management (HRM) is seen by today's leaders as central to an organisation's success. HR practitioners are an integral part of that success, and as recognition of the distinctive contribution of human resource management grows, it is increasingly valued, both as a career in its own right and as a foundation for careers in other branches of management.

Bristol Business School offers two popular Masters in Human Resource Management, both of which are recognised by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), providing a route into the profession in a wide range of industry sectors and for which applications will be considered from graduates of any discipline.

Learning and Teaching

We use a range of teaching methods on this course, with the aim of making the content as interactive, theoretically accessible, and practically focused as possible. You will learn through a combination of tutor-led and student-led activities, including small group work, group presentations and discussion, student-led seminars, case studies and role plays. Practical skills development is integral to the course and a number of skills workshops are included in the curriculum. The tutors come from a mix of academic and practitioner backgrounds.

Careers / Further study

Our intensive Masters equips you with the professional knowledge and skills you will need to make an immediate contribution in an HR role, or (if you are already employed within the field) to take your career to a more senior level.

Recent employers include Avon & Somerset Constabulary, British American Tobacco, Barclays Bank, Colgate Palmolive, Deloitte, KPMG, L'Oréal (Paris), the National Health Service, Nestlé, and Towers Watson plc.

We prepare you for advancing in your career in a number of ways, including:

a six or ten-week placement in a local organisation (on the full-time route)
practical workshops, to coach you in selection, interviewing, discipline, training and negotiating skills
guest speaker events and visits to local organisations where you can learn about current practice in different organisations
access to our award-winning careers advisory service.

Students can exit with PGDip and PGCert awards.
