Course content

Our MSc Human Resource Management course places responsible business, decent work and good people management at the forefront of teaching and research.

Championing responsible employment and ethical people management

Globalization means that effective and fair management of people is more vital than ever. Graduates will be engaged with critical thinking to, ideally, become more ethically aware and morally responsible managers, employees and citizens, equipped to promote good people management ideas and practices in workplaces and wider society.

Human Resource Management graduates are in high demand from a wide range of top employers for their specialist skills. Our ever-growing relationship with key employers in the sector will provide you with the opportunity to meet and network with leading national and global organisations.

You will begin your studies with a HRM module that provides a foundation of the four core pillars of HRM function: resourcing organisations, developing organisations, reward at work and employment relations. You can then explore a variety of other topics through innovative modules such as The Future of Work and Managing Equality and Diversity. Modules cover theory and practice with guest speakers and practical exercises, as well as research-led academic insights and perspectives.
