Human Resource Management

This programme has been designed to enable students to achieve both high-level academic understanding of contemporary developments in Human Resource Management (HRM) and the development of relevant advanced HRM skills. The programme has been designed to map on to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development's (CIPD's) advanced learning outcomes, providing students with the opportunity to complete these and become a member. Students can complete a postgraduate diploma, leading to the CIPD accreditation, in 9 months full-time as a stand-alone qualification or take the MSc which contains the taught element of the postgraduate diploma and finishes with a dissertation. Through a series of bespoke modules, the programme covers all aspects of contemporary HRM practice, including recruitment and selection, leadership and performance management, the development of individuals and organisations, employment law, reward management and approaches to HRM in an international context. This will give you an understanding a broad range of topics within HRM which you can focus on when developing ideas for written assignments and, for MSc students, your Dissertation. Unique to this programme is the opportunity for students to participate in two three-day residential study courses at Dartington Hall in Totnes. The HR Skills module is delivered at two residential sessions in October and June.
