MSc Human Resource Management

Human resource managers across all organisations and sectors are faced with increasingly complex demands arising from within their organisations and from unpredictable external environments.

This is why our programme will provide you with specialist skills and knowledge in human resource management (HRM) as well as an understanding of wider issues, such as internationalisation. Factors including the loosening of restrictions on the movement of labour mean that many employees now work across national borders. Such circumstances demand the capacity from human resource managers to design and implement strategic policies and processes – a skill that you will gain on this programme.

You will also develop the ability to recognise and address ethical dilemmas and corporate social responsibility issues as you progress through the programme, understanding the contribution to organisational success made by effective human resource management.
