Professional membership of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) is a benchmark, widely recognised in the industry and indicating to employers that individuals are knowledgeable and credible HR professionals. Membership will therefore enhance your career prospects.
Graduates of MSc HRM will have gained skills in critical reflection about academic theories, as well as their practical application. This enables our students to be highly employable in a variety of industries. Students will be able to pursue careers in the HR function of PLCs, medium and small companies alike. Other suitable opportunities exist in management consultancy and in international universities. Our students develop the ability to think globally, so our alumni can be found in many locations across the world.
From the moment you start your MSc you will have access to a specialist careers team which includes a professionally qualified MSc Careers Adviser and a dedicated International Employer Engagement Officer.
Master's Consultancy Challenge
Master's students at the Management School have the opportunity to take part in the ‘We can work it out’ master’s consultancy challenge. Students form several groups and are presented with consultancy problems from a number of organisations.
In 2019, Unilever, Mando, Airbus, Sysdoc, Chester Zoo, PwC, Santander, Open Programmatic, Deal Moon, Decathlon, Rad Wraps, Hays, and Totem learning all took part in the challenge and worked with our students. During the challenge students have access to a consultancy expert and benefit from workshops such as ‘developing consultancy skills’ and ‘pitching an idea’.
