We combine engaging academic study with the development of important professional skills that will impress prospective employers. Our course is also accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.

Outside of the taught programme itself, studying with us also gives you access to exciting talks and valuable networking events with HR leaders, skills workshops and much more. You will also have the opportunity to conduct applied HR research in a real organisation.

We are ranked in the top 10 for business and economics in the United Kingdom by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2020.

Our MSc Human Resource Management course will develop your ability to use human resources to create added value for organisations and their workforces. This course places strong emphasis on both stimulating academic study and professional skills development by applying evidence-based analytics and research to contemporary HR issues.

This course has a strong applied focus; for instance, you will receive essential training in HR analytics and research skills and then apply what you’ve learnt in a professional organisation. The course structure also closely follows the requirements for the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development’s (CIPD) Advanced Diploma in HRM, offering you the opportunity to become a Chartered Member of the CIPD after successfully completing all the modules specified in their requirements.
