Programme Information

The MSc in Human Resource Management is designed for students who do not have a business background. The uniqueness of the programme is the great combination of research and practice. The structure of the programme is designed to build student's knowledge and understanding of human resource management and also provide students great opportunities to go beyond the classroom and empower them to learn Human Resource Management in real organizations via Human Resource Management in Practice module. Students are offered the opportunity to conduct either a research dissertation or a company based project which again build students' capability to apply theory into practice.


Applications for the next intake in September 2020 will open in October. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis so we recommend applying for this popular programme as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
