About Human Resource Management / Human Resource Management (2yr) at Nottingham Trent University

Our MSc Human Resource Management (HRM) course is ideal for students from any academic discipline who want to build a successful career in HR. The course is designed specifically to enable those who are seeking to start such a career, to gain a Masters qualification in HRM through completing a course of study that has been approved by the professional body for HRM practitioners, namely the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).

During your studies, you will explore a full range of HRM approaches, techniques and methodologies. The modules will provide you with a solid grounding in HRM and its practice in contemporary organisations.

You'll gain internationally-relevant skills that create career opportunities in consultancy, recruitment, training and other HR roles which facilitate global business. The emphasis is on applying knowledge, skills and techniques to analyse HRM practices and strategies.

The Consultancy Experience Project (or an Applied Dissertation, on the two-year course) gives you the opportunity to apply the knowledge and analytical skills you have acquired throughout your studies enabling you to make costed recommendations to the senior managers of a real organisation on a business HR issue.

Successful completion of this course leads to Associate Membership of the CIPD, and is a prerequisite for you to eventually apply for Chartered Membership and ultimately enable you to apply to progress to Chartered Fellowship of the CIPD. Nottingham Business School will pay for your student membership for the duration of the course.
