With modules covering leadership, economics, human resource management and much more, our MSc Business with Human Resources will prepare you for a senior role in almost any private, public or non-profit making organisation*.
You’ll use cutting-edge theories and practices to critically reflect on your own workplace experience, while also developing cross-functional abilities and transferable skills.
The business expertise you will develop will allow you to apply relevant qualitative and quantitative research methods to tasks, synthesise and utilise management tools in the construction of business projects and decision-making, critically select effective information collection methods, competently apply appropriate analytical tools and much more.
And the additional human resource knowledge that you will also gain on this combined course will also allow you to critically examine the management and motivation of the human resource through approaches to performance management and reward, cultures of continuous development and improvement amongst diverse employees.
The programme also gives you the opportunity to undertake independent research and create a 40-credit Business and Management Research Report.
