Course Summary

Human resources professionals shape and inform strategic and operational decision making. They are concerned with ensuring that organisations employ the right balance of staff in terms of skills and experience, and ensuring that training and development opportunities are used to enhance performance and achieve objectives. This course enables significant exemptions from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. You develop essential business skills and critically reflect on the knowledge and competencies required for HR practitioners in a range of professional contexts. This MA meets the underpinning knowledge requirements for the CIPD Professional membership grades, however the membership grade awarded by CIPD is also based on your practical workplace experience of HR. Completion of the MA allows you to apply for the CIPD professional membership level of Associate Member. An interactive workshop approach is used to develop understanding through lectures, individual and group activities, case studies and presentations. Effective and professional human resource management is increasingly recognised by organisations as a key area in achieving business success. Consequently there is high demand for highly trained and skilled HR professionals. Our experience, and that of our past students, strongly suggests that the MA Human Resource Management at Teesside University Business School can provide that unique advantage in the jobs market.
