Students come to this course from all over the world, with a wide range of backgrounds and ambitions. They all benefit from a superb MBA programme which has been designed in consultation with employers. You’ll graduate with the skills you need to impact positively and strategically on human resource management, and to lead and influence organisations at the highest levels.
The course has been approved by the Chartered Institute of Personal and Development (CIPD), the professional body for HR. When you pass your MBA, you’ll achieve the CIPD Advanced Diploma in Human Resource Management. The course is also accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). Providing you pass the course, register as a CMI member and pay a membership fee, you will also be awarded the CMI Certificate in Strategic Management and Leadership.
As far as possible, this course reflects the kind of challenges you’ll face in the workplace. As part of your learning you might develop your own recruitment and talent management campaign, a bespoke training programme, and/or and an employee engagement strategy. You might work with colleagues at overseas institutions to analyse international HR issues. There are opportunities for field trips in the UK and internationally, and you could even choose a work experience placement in your final term.
You’ll be taught by helpful, supportive and highly qualified academics with extensive career experience in human resource management, and who are members of the CIPD. They will apply their experience to illustrate your learning, and they’ll use their extensive network of business contacts to create networking opportunities for students.
Our campus is based in the heart of the City of London, close to the headquarters of some of the most famous organisations in the world. You’ll be surrounded by businesses of every description, from start-ups to multi-nationals, and by opportunities to explore the dynamics of the way they manage their human resources.
You’ll have many opportunities to mix with employers and to build your CV. You could do a consultancy project for a real business client, or take up an internship in the HR department of a notable London organisation. Previous students have developed employee handbooks for government bodies, designed employee retention policies, and delivered recommendations on how to improve the recruitment and selection processes for international organisations. Should you wish to start your own business, we offer business start-up advice and support.
