Our Human Resource Management MSc is available in two formats:
The CIPD-accredited pathway has a specific list of core modules and optional modules, while the non-accredited pathway contains a wider range of optional modules.
By undertaking an MSc in Human Resource Management you'll develop a detailed and thorough understanding of the role human resources play in modern organisations in the private, public and third sectors.
You will be taught by world-class researchers from across the Management School and will learn about a diverse range of topics including pay, performance management, recruitment and retention, strategic management, skills and workforce development, worker voice and representation, and international HRM. You will also learn about how to conduct research which involves designing a research project, obtaining ethical approval, undertaking qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis, and applying theoretical knowledge to empirical data.
The final element of the MSc HRM is the authoring of a substantive piece of independent research in the form of either a dissertation or a company project. The latter involves working with an organisation such as a private company, a public organisation or a charity to produce a piece of research in conjunction with them. Throughout your dissertation/company project, you will receive personalised supervision from an academic who will offer guidance on your project.
Upon graduation, you'll be equipped with the necessary knowledge and experience to succeed and flourish in human resources management, both in the UK and internationally.
