Introduction

The Master of Business (Human Resource Management Stream) provides the student with the opportunity to greatly enhance their specialist subject knowledge, experience innovative learning methods and explore opportunities arising from innovation, change and business development. Students achieve this through participation in class activities and through involvement in a series of events including those organised by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).

Our School is an accredited centre for the CIPD professional body and the MBS - (Human Resource Management Stream) awards associate membership of the CIPD which is a global qualification. A key feature of this programme is that it sets the theories into a wider practical perspective, through the use of case studies, state of the art technology and visiting staff who are experienced and respected practitioners.

More Information

Students benefit from a customised Seminar Series which brings together invited keynote speakers from a diverse range of businesses and public policy organisations, so that students have the opportunity to learn from industry-leading practitioners. Previous MBS students have benefited from these close links with industry and many of our partner organisations have been happy to consider our students for first job positions alongside more experienced applicants.

The course also incorporates a number of professional development workshops (including a day-long team development event at induction, an international study tour and a ‘Dragons Den’ competition event) during the year to extend student communication and presentation skills, enhance self-awareness, teamwork and cultural sensitivity, and allow graduates to perform effectively in organisations upon graduation.
