This MSc provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental principles and techniques of human resource management and development (HRM&D). It enables you to develop competence, techniques and effectiveness in HRM&D, focusing on the crucial role of human resource development in meeting challenges in international development by adding value to economic activities, securing effective public services, and building capabilities within individuals, organisations and societies.
Participants will engage in a critical analysis of best practices in HRM&D, and their application to globalization and international development processes. The programme examines the current international business environment and its diverse nature of social and economic challenges to the management and development of human resources.
Future Career Opportunities
Graduates can go onto careers in human resource management, NGO management, training & HR consultancy, or senior roles within international development agencies, such as the United Nations. In addition, the course provides an excellent foundation for further research through PhD studies.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
Normally a good Honours degree in management, commerce, development studies, education, business, public administration or marketing; or a good social science degree.
The programme is taught in English. Students whose first language is not English are normally required to have an IELTS 6.5 (reading 6, writing 6), TOEFL paper based 560, TOEFL ibt 83 or other equivalent recognised English language qualification.
No work experience is required.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
