Months of entry
In our rapidly-changing business world, human resource managers have an ever-widening remit. Increasingly, organisations want to measure their effectiveness globally, rather than locally, and take strategic decisions that influence their overall structure and function. HR professionals will be involved in much of this work.
This academically rigorous course provides a sound basis for taking on senior HR roles. It focuses on how the global marketplace impacts upon labour markets, looking particularly at the changing nature of employment after the worldwide credit crunch.
Our team at Lord Ashcroft International Business School believes that managers learn with and from each other to find solutions to real-life problems at work. That's why we encourage participative learning methods and work-based assignments so that it's not just you who benefits from your development, but also your employer.
Our course is recognised by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), the UK's most credible specialist human resources training and awarding body.
While you’re here, you’ll benefit from state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities, study areas, campus libraries with online databases containing professional journals, plus our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) through which you can access study resources and help.
Start dates: September at our Chelmsford Campus, June at our Cambridge Campus.
