What will I study?
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.
This programme is also available as MSc Business with Human Resource Management with Advanced Practice which includes either an internship or project.
How will I be taught and assessed?
Your tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including lectures, seminars and workshops. As this is a Masters course there is a major element of independent learning and self-motivated reflection.
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 assessment strategy is based on our understanding that everyone has different needs, strengths and enthusiasms. Assessment is based on coursework and an exam, and our methods will include essays, reports, group work, presentations, and the Masters dissertation or consultancy project.
Careers and further study
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.
