Whether you are starting a career in human resource management (HRM) or are already working in the field and would like to progress at a professional level, this International Human Resource Management MA can help you to achieve your career goals.
It is designed to provide you with a foundation of knowledge and practical skills, plus an understanding of the role of the HR profession (with a focus on the issues and policies that affect international HR managers). The knowledge you gain is relevant to both the strategic objectives of an international organisation and the wider environment in which it operates.
We are also one of 33 CIPD Licensed Upgrade Centres, whereby we can recommend for immediate upgrading to Chartered membership students who have successfully completed their postgraduate HRM course and meet the CIPD upgrade criteria.
