About

The course combines the theoretical knowledge you would expect at master’s level with the practical elements you will need to succeed. It has a strong emphasis on the behavioural and leadership skills to make a positive difference, wherever you work.

If you are a conscientious and committed professional looking for accreditation by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), you will join around 30 like-minded people from London, the UK, Europe and further afield.

And, with our contacts and support, you will build a network that will help you throughout the rest of your career.

As someone dedicated to your own personal and professional development, you will benefit from this highly practical course and will be taught to be specialists in all key HRM areas, including learning and development, employee relations and recruitment.

On graduation you will have associate membership of the CIPD and will have the knowledge component required to go for chartered CIPD status, which will really cement your professional standing.

Your future career

Which route will you choose? This HRM Master's qualification will open doors to the profession in the public, private or voluntary sector. All companies and organisations thrive or fail according to the quality of their people and with your MA you will be well placed to make a strategic contribution.

You will have a breadth and depth of knowledge that will make you an attractive proposition to employers, able to combine a theoretical and practical approach to make a positive difference.

You might choose to go down the generalist path, where your skills and talents will be put to use across the range of HRM disciplines. Or instead you might choose to focus on a specific area.

You could, for example focus on reward – ensuring the organisations retain the best staff – or on recruitment, making sure that companies attract and bring on board the best people for the job. This could be in-house or for a recruitment consultancy.

You could also focus on training and development, making sure that staff have the right skills and qualities to make a telling contribution to any company.

Programme Structure

What you'll learn

On this course you will learn the key components of the HRM practitioner’s role, and you should come with an open mind and a willingness to engage with the very wide variety of content you’ll be presented with.

The areas you will cover include managing people, recruitment, employment law, leadership and employee relations. You will also study management, strategy and training and development.

The course has been carefully designed to mirror the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development’s learning outcomes, so you can be sure that you will be taught the latest thinking.

You will also produce a dissertation on a relevant topic of your choice, ensuring this has a strong strategic as well as a theoretical rationale.

As a pre-requisite, the topic you choose must be grounded within a company or organisation. Recent dissertation topics have included the female talent pipeline in the mobile phone industry and assessing the readiness for change in a large marketing company.
