About

MSc Human Resource Management and Development  (International Development) by Distance Learning course from The University of Manchester offers a practical and critical introduction to the philosophy, values, policies and practices of HRM/D in an international context.

Overview

The  Human Resource Management and Development  (International Development) by Distance Learning course from The University of Manchester makes available core elements and insights of the Global Development Institute's (GDI) existing taught master's courses in Human Resource Management and Human Resource Development , enabling participants to obtain a master's degree by distance learning over up to five years without leaving home or interrupting their careers.

Teaching and learning

Participants study on the distance learning degree without leaving home or interrupting their careers.  A typical study route would involve completion of four compulsory course units in the first year of study, and completion of the remaining four course units in the second year.A dissertation is undertaken in the first half of the third year.Using this route, participants complete the full master's course in two-and-a-half years. However, the programme is flexible and can accommodate faster or slower study and completion speeds in order to take account of work, family or other personal commitments.For example, after completing teaching period one, students can accelerate their study by spending a twelve-week semester in Manchester, studying alongside students on our face-to-face master's courses.

  • The Global Development Institute (GDI) will equip you with the skills for specialist positions in development-related NGOs and public and private organisations. Potential careers include:
