Our MSc Human Resource Management programme is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and is ideal for those interested in developing a career in human resource management, employment relations, employee development or allied fields of management.
This course covers all the essentials of human resource management and develops your skills up to a strategic level, culminating in a dissertation. It includes the opportunity to undertake optional modules to tailor your degree in areas including employment relations, work design, learning and development and employment law. Students with a particular interest in employment relations can choose this as the theme of their dissertation, enabling a focused study supported by specialist tutors.
Our MSc Human Resource Management programme is taught by academic experts with both a strong track record in human resource management related research and practitioner HR experience. It focuses on developing critical thinking and analytical skills alongside more practical skills required for a career in people management. These practical skills include making presentations, role-play practice in handling challenging situations, and problem solving skills through case study analysis.
Our links to the CIPD reinforce the professional skills and behaviours that you develop throughout the course, as well as providing the opportunity for networking with business leaders and HR professionals.
We pride ourselves on the international perspective that is a theme throughout the programme, as is the emphasis on ethical best practice which one would expect from aspiring professionals. Loughborough School of Business and Economics is a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), and these values are reflected throughout the programme.
