Human Resource Management masters degree programme provides students with knowledge in contemporary human resource management policies and practices within organisations and how people management practices are changing in response to the changing world of work. It provides good grounding in many of the key concepts and models that underpin HRM, and also parent disciplines of psychology, sociology and economics.

The MSc Human Resource Management degree also focuses both on both operational and strategic issues as well as current debates and challenges facing the field. The international focus of the programme’s content is a key strength which will support the transfer of learning through contextualisation via case studies to a wide range of scenarios.

Programme structure

Full-time study on our MSc programmes follows a schedule of half-day teaching blocks. A single module, for example, will be taught over six half-days, usually the same half-day each week e.g. six consecutive Monday mornings and half modules are taught over three half-days. Module teaching blocks will be scheduled on different half-days so that students will study several modules during the same period.

Teaching on this Human Resource Management masters degree takes place during the autumn, spring and summer terms with a few modules scheduled for evenings and the Easter vacation. These will usually be the optional modules but this is not guaranteed. Formal examinations take place in January and May/June each year at the end of each semester. If you pass the module assessments to a satisfactory standard you are permitted to continue work until September leading to the submission of an MSc dissertation.
