Postgraduate Diploma - Human Resource Management

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Aims of the course The two-year part-time Executive-style MA in Human Resource Management is aimed at practising human resource professionals seeking to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of human resource activities. The aim of the course is to develop 'thinking HR performers' by providing a systematic understanding of people management and development, and a critical awareness of current problems and/or new insights, much of which is at, or informed by, the forefront of human resource management and practice. The MA in Human Resource Management is designed for HRM generalists and is intended to enable you to identify and make effective use of a range of methods and techniques for providing human resources for an organisation and ensuring their optimum utilisation. During the course you will also participate in an international study visit to another EU country (previous residentials have been held in France). It will normally be of about six days' duration. The week consists of visits to organisations, presentations from practitioners, and seminars and discussions on relevant issues. You will be required to complete an assignment about the study visit. In addition, Year One includes a compulsory weekend residential at the beginning of the course to examine and practice the skills you will need throughout the rest of the course. There are a number of other compulsory one-day workshops throughout the course. Career opportunities Successful completion of this Masters degree (or the Postgraduate Diploma) provides Graduate Membership of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, and prepares you for careers in a wide variety of industries. Successful completion of the two modules in the first semester of the course leads to an Advanced Diploma in Professional Development and Licentiate Membership of the CIPD.
