About

Whether you want to work in an HR role, focus on the learning and development of people, advise on the people function in a consulting organisation, or become an independent people consultant, then this programme will match your needs.

Overview

You will develop your expertise in activating people, and in stimulating change through consulting. The interactive and experiential learning approach, combined with working with real organisations, will embed and extend the theoretical and practical abilities developed on the programme. Whether you are already working in HR, management education or consultancy, or are relatively new to the field, you’ll be stretching your mind as we train you to think critically about all of these. Working collaboratively and sharing your ideas and experiences with your international classmates and a team of supportive tutors is key – and, as our graduates tell us, it’s often how you learn the most.

You will graduate prepared for a role in any of the following areas: human resource management, human resource development, organisation development, leadership and management development, or consulting in the people side of organisations.
