Course content

The ability to empower organisations and their people is a highly sought-after skill, and the focus on developing, valuing, and managing human resources has never been greater. This unique course blends strategic HR, development and consulting to develop your expertise in working with and through people.

It is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). Whether you are a recent graduate, or already work in HR, management education or consultancy, your mind will be challenged as we train you to think and act critically and effectively.

This is not a programme focused on simplistic ‘models’ or techniques. Instead we will teach you to hone the capabilities and skills necessary to develop people and knowledge effectively.

You will put your newly developed conceptual abilities into practice with real-life organisations, including how to intervene constructively in strategic issues and stimulate change through consulting. We will encourage you to work collaboratively, sharing ideas and experiences with your international classmates and tutors. As our graduates tell us, that’s often how you will learn the most.

We provide a supportive environment, centred around our students. You will be taught by distinguished academics who research and publish at the very highest level. You will also hear from guest speakers ranging from internal managers to experienced external consultants. Our learning approach includes critical analysis, experiential learning and interactive processes. Even your dissertation will be stimulated through peer-supported research.

Equipped with sophisticated conceptual, analytical and practical skills, many of our graduates secure roles in consulting in the people side of organisations. Others work in human resource development and management, organisational development, or leadership and management development.
