Are you looking to complement your undergraduate studies or professional skillset with a business-focused Masters degree that will enhance your employability? The MSc Business with Human Resource Management will help you to develop a broad range of business skills whilst developing your understanding of specialist modules covering principles, values and approaches in human resource management (HRM), as well as organisational behaviour and practice.
You’ll also develop your research skills through a Masters dissertation or an investigative consultancy project that’s related to a particular HRM issue.
The course culminates in either a master’s dissertation or, if you prefer, a consultancy project where you’ll tackle an issue faced by a real client. Throughout the course there’s a focus on self-development and employability.
Your tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including lectures, seminars and workshops, totalling around 14 hours per week. As this is a Masters course there is a major element of independent learning and self-motivated reflection. You will be expected to engage in independent study involving directed and self-directed learning, around 44 hours per week.
This option offers the opportunity to spend three months gaining all-important work experience and employability skills in a professional work setting. You may be able to extend this over more than one semester in cases where it is adjacent to a vacation period. Support is provided to help source opportunities and to perfect the applicant CV but ultimately the onus is on the student to secure the internship position.
Teaching is backed up by a well-designed support system that helps ensure a successful learning journey. We make sure that extensive feedback, from both tutors and peers, is built into the course.
Our graduates typically go into professional and graduate management positions and, by the end of the course, you’ll be well-equipped to follow them. If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university. Whatever you decide to do, you will have the transferable skills that employers expect from a Masters graduate from Northumbria University London.
Upon successfully completing your course, you may undertake further professional development and training through Professional Pathways programmes. These are offered to our graduates for free, from our partner, QA.
