The Masters in Human Resource Management (HRM) is a new programme which is designed to provide a solid foundation for successful participants to develop, or enhance their careers, in HRM.
The programme is delivered by the Cardiff School of Management, recognised across the world as a Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) professionally approved centre. As such, the full-time and part-time MSc HRM is fully approved by CIPD and you will be eligible for an ‘Associate’ membership of the CIPD when you have successfully completed the full Master’s programme.
The work environment has become more complex with significant changes in the organisation of work, an increasingly diverse labour force, new patterns of working and contractual arrangements. This is set against the background of a highly competitive global market. The attraction, retention and development of high-calibre people are sources of competitive advantage for organisations, and this places the role of HRM at the centre of high business performance and success.
The programme critically explores the theoretical and practical implications of delivering HRM at a strategic and operational level in organisations. In this way, the latest business concepts and theories are applied to 'real world' settings.
The programme modules involve participants engaging with the key debates and themes that reflect contemporary issues faced by organisations. They further critically examine the implications for HRM strategies and policies, line managers, employees and the HRM professional.
