Human resource managers across all organisations and sectors are faced with increasingly complex demands arising from within their organisations and from unpredictable external environments.

This is why our programme will provide you with specialist skills and knowledge in human resource management (HRM) as well as an understanding of wider issues, such as internationalisation.

Factors including the loosening of restrictions on the movement of labour mean that many employees now work across national borders. Such circumstances demand the capacity from human resource managers to design and implement strategic policies and processes – a skill that you will gain on this programme.

You will also develop the ability to recognise and address ethical dilemmas and corporate social responsibility issues as you progress through the programme, understanding the contribution to organisational success made by effective human resource management.

You will study

  • Critical Concepts in HRM
  • Employment Relations
  • International Issues in HRM
  • Human Resource Development
  • Strategic Leadership and Leading Change
  • Professional Skills and Ethics
  • Research Methods

You will also

  • choose from two specialist modules in the HRM field
  • undertake a dissertation or project in an area of interest

Critical Concepts in HRM explores the development and theory of human resource management, evaluating practices including human resource planning; recruitment and selection; performance management; and diversity.

Employment Relations are a crucial element of HRM. This module explores theories of employment relations, considering these in relation to strategic human resource management and adopting a comparative international approach.

International Issues in HRM examines international human resource management, looking particularly at the transference of its functions and practices across cultural and national boundaries.

Human Resource Development focuses on theories and practices of learning in organisations, exploring employee development and management learning of individuals and the organisation. It also covers some psychological approaches to learning, drawing on occupational psychology; experiential learning; skills; and social learning theory.

Strategic Leadership and Leading Change looks at the relationship between leadership skills and the development and evolution of organisations. It considers the nature of leadership, focusing on strategic leadership, and how organisations manage the change process in response to internal and external pressures.

In addition to your chosen specialism, you will develop transferable professional skills and ethics through two core modules (Professional Skills and Ethics, and Research Methods) and a dissertation (or company project).
