This programme is aimed at professional managers, both those already working in the field of 'people management' and those who see their careers developing in that direction. The programme is designed to help managers develop the strategic, functional and personal competences required to meet the increasingly demanding roles of HR, whatever their present level of experience.
The programme is structured to reflect the roles now demanded of the HR professional:
In addition to core HR concepts and techniques, the programme addresses the increasingly important interfaces between HR and other key business functions, including marketing and communications, information and communications technologies and knowledge management. Managing across these interfaces is seen as an important way in which HR can meet the key strategic aims of organisations.

Once you have paid for your first course, you will be allocated a Student Identity number (SID) and Registration number. This will enable you to download and complete a Matriculation Form. When you have provided evidence of your prior academic qualifications (a business management degree with first or second class honours from a university recognised by Heriot-Watt University), you will be able to formally 'matriculate' (be accepted as a student of Heriot-Watt University).
Alternatively, you can matriculate when you have passed 3 core courses (one of which must be Human Resource Management) for the MSc.
No work experience is required.
