Master of Arts in Human Resource Management

Programme Purpose

The programme seeks to develop, via its teaching and learning strategies, an understanding of core disciplines in the field of Human Resources, and to show how these link together to enable employees to address the tasks they face in a rapidly changing environment. This programme provides learners interested in immediate employment in the area of Human Resources with the analytical and theoretical skills, tools and techniques to operate practically across a wide range of HR functions. A concerted effort has been made to include a significant amount of case study material and practical work in order to demonstrate the application of principles and theories delivered within programme. Students will develop a specialised set of skills and knowledge in Human Resource Management, in particular the ability to analyse business needs and deliver effective solutions that optimise the HR & Personnel resources of the organisation. They will have an understanding of the strategic contribution of HR knowledge to effective organisational change and development, which will require an understanding of the business context and the acquisition of important diagnostic skills. Skills such as diagnosis, communication and influencing will also be fostered to help them implement strategic human resource development initiatives.
