In a turbulent, rapidly changing business environment, the demand for HR professionals who can strategically manage and develop staff potential – while overcoming issues such as redundancy, flexible working and the recent challenges of furloughed staff and social distancing – has never been more fundamental to business success. 

Our career-focused MA Human Resource Management at University of westminster  is fully accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD), the only professional body in the world that can award Chartered status to HRM or Learning and Development professionals. It is designed to build your understanding of the theory, practices and policies associated with evidence-based Human Resource Management (HRM) as they relate to real-world situations, equipping you with the knowledge, competencies and analytical skills to effectively manage organisational strategy and operations from an HR perspective. 

Our problem-based approach to teaching means you’ll get to apply what you learn to management problems through assignments and projects based on actual situations. We’ll draw on everyday HR issues in the news, case studies and current examples, at times addressing some of our own students’ workplace experiences. You’ll learn to collect and analyse relevant data and information, developing your ability to identify, evaluate and propose the most appropriate solutions looking at issues ranging from flexible working to employee engagement, managing change or reward management.

Semester 1

The core Managing Human Resources module is designed to give you a solid overview of HRM theory and practice, exploring  approaches to human resource practice and the implications for organisational success. We’ll also examine the theory and practice of leadership and management and give you a greater insight into how businesses operate and the economic, social, political and governance issues that affect how managers make key decisions.

You’ll participate in two one-day workshops on disciplinary handling and counselling as part of our commitment to developing essential practitioner skills. You’ll also be introduced to research methods in preparation for your research project.

Semester 2

As the course develops, we’ll examine the skills required to be an effective HR manager or consultant, focusing on how to diagnose HRM problems and apply appropriate solutions taking particular account of specific international, national and local contexts, institutions and cultures.

The project module gives you the chance to demonstrate your ability to critically analyse, research and report independently on a specific HRM problem, practice, policy or opportunity, through systematic enquiry and the integration of theory. You may, for example, analyse how remote working influences employee engagement, or investigate best practice in redundancy and dismissal.
