Progress your HR career while fitting your studies around work and home commitments with our ‘day release’ course. Our postgraduate qualification is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and held by HR professionals around the world.
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 Cambridge once a week and using our online learning environment at other times.
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.
Please note: if you’ve achieved the CIPD Professional Development Standards in the last five years, or the Advanced Diploma Standards, or the Anglia Ruskin Postgraduate Diploma in HRM on the block or part-time route, you can top-up your award to progress to the MA in Human Resource Management by undertaking two modules focusing your international and global understanding alongside a dissertation.
For immediate progression to the full-time MA in Human Resource Management programme in Cambridge, you have the option of undertaking Global HRM and a Masters dissertation at completion of your award.
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.
MODULES & ASSESSMENT
Human Resource Management in ContextThis module is concerned with the environment in which organisations operate, and how organisations have to respond to the very dynamic environment which they operate in.
Resourcing and Talent ManagementThis module is very much at the heart of Human Resource Management as organisations can only function if they are able to assemble together the rights teams of people with the necessary skills, attitudes and talents to meet their objectives. It reflects on how organisations have to compete for the best available talent, particularly when demand exceeds supply.
Business SkillsDesigned to equip you with the skills to enable you to perform business management tasks effectively and efficiently. You will engage in a series of activities which give insight into your own skills, personality and characteristics so you can fully grasp your strengths and development areas, enabling you to perform better as you gain confidence throughout the module. This module is also concerned with the development of skills and specifically seeks to improve a range of skills pivotal to successful management practice and effective leadership including critical thinking and decision making skills, the management of financial information and how to manage budgets.
Leading, Managing and Developing PeopleThis module will provide you with a rigorous framework for knowledge and understanding, concerning people management and development.
Year two, core modules
Designing, Delivering and Evaluating Learning and Development ProvisionThis module will introduce you to an established body of knowledge and theory on learning processes and their application in instructional design and facilitating learning – including the design and delivery of learning and development plans and events.
Managing Employee RelationsThis module aims to provide learners with a comprehensive understanding of employment relations in terms of theoretical perspectives, debates and practices in national and international, contexts and from a theoretical and behavioural competency perspective.
Employment LawThe purpose of this module is to provide students with the knowledge, understanding and skills required to brief organisations on the consequences of current and future developments in employment law, and to give up-to-date, timely and accurate advice concerning the practical application of legal principles.
Human Resource Management in the Global ContextThis module sets out to investigate how, and if, human resource management (HRM)) operates in the international arena. This is done in two ways: by considering differences in national HRM policies and practices and by examining how businesses overcome the people problems associated with operating in more than one country. This will lead to a questioning of the extent to which HRM can be seen as a global phenomenon. In order to undertake this module effectively it is assumed that students will have some familiarity with HRM practices in at least one country and a desire to uncover similarities and differences in others. One of the main focuses for the design of this module has been the further development of relevant employability and professional skills. Such skills are implicit in the learning outcomes. Assessment will be by a 3,000-word assignment.
Investigating a Business Issue from a Human Resources PerspectiveIt is essential that HR practitioners are strategically aware, business orientated and concerned with adding value through human resource practice. This module allows learners to demonstrate their ability to diagnose and investigate a live, complex business issue from an HR perspective, to locate the work within the body of contemporary knowledge, to collect and analyse data, to derive supportable conclusions and to make persuasive, practical and actionable recommendations for change, improvement or enhancement of current practice. The applied nature of the report requires a critical evaluative approach, empirical investigation and analysis and a combination of academic research and business report writing skills. It requires reflection on the implications for professional practice from an ethical, professional and continuous professional development standpoint. One of the main focuses for the design of this module has been the further development of relevant employability and professional skills. Such skills are implicit in the learning outcomes.
We’ll assess you in a number of ways, including written reports and essays, oral presentations, case study analysis, exams and a portfolio.
This is a two- year programme
