In today’s workplace, HR professionals must tackle many different employment issues. The University’s postgraduate human resource management programme offers students an in-depth understanding of HR management functions and the business contexts that underpin them.
Students will find out how professional development can contribute to enhanced performance within an organisation; how internal and external factors can affect success, and how people are managed within contemporary businesses.
Membership into the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development is built into the course. To earn this membership, students will need to complete a six week work experience project and write a management research report. The human resource management teaching team can help students to secure these placements throughout the year.
Students also graduate with a range of transferable skills. These include communication, presentation, research and analysis, teamwork, training, networking, coaching and mentoring.
