If you’re aspiring to be an effective HR practitioner – whether you're working as a manager or consultant in a generalist or specialist role – this is the must-have qualification. It will allow you to develop your understanding of organisations and the changing environment in which HR teams operate. Using critical analysis, self-reflection and problem-solving techniques, you’ll learn how to develop and implement creative, strategic plans that drive organisational performance.
You’ll study part-time while continuing to work, coming to campus once a week and using our online learning environment at other times. You can choose to study with us in Cambridge or Chelmsford, or at University Centre Peterborough.
Our students register as associate members of CIPD, and enjoy exclusive access to journals, reports, time-saving resources, library services, as well as professional development guidance and networking opportunities. Once you’re in work, you’ll be able to upgrade to full membership. The cost of your membership and course accreditation with the CIPD is not included in the course fees. Whilst the degree is accredited, those seeking this credit for their degree should apply directly to join the CIPD and pay the appropriate joining and membership fee.
Here at Faculty of Business and Law, we have over 25 years’ experience of delivering CIPD qualifications and a high achievement rate: 100% of our MA Human Resource Management graduates are in work or further study six months after graduating (DLHE, 2014). So by studying with us, we think you have the best chance of success.
Our course has a strong focus on the skills and knowledge you need for a successful career in human resource management. It’s essential if you’re preparing for, or aspiring to, managerial roles in HR either in UK or abroad.
Your qualification will be recognised by CIPD, the UK's most credible specialist human resources training and awarding body.
