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 subject experts, long-established links with 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.

The MSc in Human Resource Management (part-time) is for students who are pursuing an HR career in the UK. Tailored to the needs of HR professionals the course is recognised by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), providing a route into the profession in a wide range of industry sectors. Applications will be considered from graduates of any discipline.

Content

The department is currently reviewing the curriculum for this course, so the topics of study and modules listed are subject to change.

The part-time course is intended primarily for employees who have already begun a career in HR, who are looking for a professional qualification to enhance their professional standing and career prospects. It is also ideal if you are employed outside HR and wish to join the profession.

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.

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

practical workshops, to develop your hands-on skills as an interviewer, trainer and negotiator
psychometric and motivational profiling, to offer insight into your strengths and attributes of personality which are relevant to your career progression
guest speaker events and visits to local organisations where you can learn about current practice in different organisations
a mentoring programme, which offers each student a personal link to a local HR professional who will discuss your academic progress with you, help you to relate the content of the course to practice, and discuss your career development and progression
a careers guidance programme, which comprises talks by guest HR practitioners on career issues for HR professionals (such as becoming an HR Business Partner) and sessions targeting your CV and your presentation of yourself at interview.

Students can exit with PGDip and PGCert awards.
