Course details

Sharing much of its content with the online (part-time) MSc Business Management, this course offers you the opportunity to pursue a specialism in HRM, opening doors to increased career opportunities at postgraduate level.

The course puts HRM in an international context and will inform you about contemporary HRM and how to apply this to real life scenarios.

You’ll gain a sound theoretical grounding in business and management theory with a focus on HRM and stimulate an enquiring, analytical approach to widen the application of your business management skills to support a range of career routes in human resource management.

This course is ideally suited to individuals who intend to balance their personal commitments with their studies. It will build on your existing experience and knowledge and enhance it with contemporary business theory, giving you the expertise you need to take on senior roles.
