Are you looking to complement your undergraduate studies or professional skillset with a business-focused Masters degree that will enhance your employability?
The MSc business with Human Resource Management will help you to develop a broad range of business skills whilst developing your understanding of specialist modules covering principles, values and approaches in human resource management (HRM), as well as organisational behaviour and practise.
With modules covering leadership, organisational analysis and core business topics, our intellectually stimulating programme will prepare you for senior roles in private, public or non-profit sector organisations.
You'll also develop your research skills through a Masters dissertation or an investigative consultancy project that's related to a particular HRM issue. The course culminates in either a Masters dissertation or if you prefer, a consultancy project where you'll tackle an issue faced by a real client. Throughout the course, there's a big focus on self-development and employability.
Your tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including lectures, seminars and workshops. As this is a masters course there is a major element of independent learning and self-motivated reflection. Teaching is backed up by a well-designed support system that helps ensure a successful learning journey. We make sure that extensive feedback, from both tutors and peers, is built into the course.
Our assessment strategy is based on our understanding that everyone has different needs, strengths and enthusiasms. Assessment is based on coursework and our methods will include essays, reports, group work, presentations, and the master's dissertation or consultancy project.
