The Masters in Human Resource Management (HRM) is a new programme* which is designed to provide a solid foundation for successful participants to develop careers in HRM.
The work environment has become more complex with significant changes in the organisation of work, an increasingly diverse labour force, new patterns of working and contractual arrangements. This is set against the background of a highly competitive global market. The attraction, retention and development of high-calibre people are sources of competitive advantage for organisations, and this places the role of HRM at the centre of high business performance and success.
The programme critically explores the theoretical and practical implications of delivering HRM at a strategic and operational level in organisations. In this way, the latest business concepts and theories are applied to 'real world' settings.
The programme modules involve participants engaging with the key debates and themes that reflect contemporary issues faced by organisations. They further critically examine the implications for HRM strategies and policies, line managers, employees and the HRM professional.
Note: This programme is "pending Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development (CIPD) approval'. This will enable students completing the MSc in HRM to achieve the knowledge required for progression towards a level of professional membership.
