Course content

With the power to influence the direction and success of almost any organisation, human resource management (HRM) is a valuable discipline to master. When implemented effectively, HRM creates a culture of valued workers with low employee turnover, allowing businesses to retain the pool of talent and knowledge they have invested their time, money and effort into. Whether you're in the early or mid-stages of your HR career, you can now embark on an exciting MA to advance your skills and move into more senior positions without having to sacrifice your weekday commitments.
