This flexible course is a part-time Masters level course for those who wish to enhance their effectiveness and confidence in the workplace.
It provides a rounded introduction to the principles of management and is designed to have immediate relevance and application in your current role whilst also providing potential for future progression in both study and your HR career.
The teaching hours are designed to have minimal impact on the working day and additional study is undertaken in your own time, so you can study while working, and won't need ask your employer to release you for significant amounts of time. You can, however, still benefit from regular contact with lecturers and your fellow students.
The MA Human Resource Management has two significant parts. Firstly, there is the Research Methods module. This is a stand-alone module but is also designed to act as the springboard for the next stage, the management report (also known as the dissertation). The Research module is run over one term, usually between 5.00pm – 9.00pm, one day a week for six sessions. Normally the courses start in September and April each year, although this can vary. The MA (HR) course is intended to run over three terms, one for the Research module, and two for the completion of the Management Report (dissertation).
