Course Summary

Course description

MSc Human Resource Management (International Development) is a practical yet critical introduction to the philosophy, values, policies and practices of human resource management in the context of developing or transitional countries.

It is an ideal choice if you are involved in human resources at an organisation in a developing or transitional country.

You may, for example, be a personnel practitioner such as a personnel manager/officer, human resource officer or planner, or alternatively a line manager concerned broadly with the management of people in an organization.

Teaching and learning

Part-time students complete the course over 24 months. There are no evening or weekend course units available; you should, therefore, discuss course requirements with the Programme Director and seek approval from your employer. Timetabling information is usually available from late August. You can discuss course unit choices during induction week with the Programme Director.

Coursework and assessment

The taught element of the course, carrying 120 credits overall, is continuously assessed by a variety of methods (eg project-based reports, essays), involving largely individual submissions, but also elements of group work.

You must also complete a 12,000-15,000 word dissertation on a topic of your choice approved by the Programme Directors. You are encouraged to base your dissertation on topics of direct professional concern.

Career opportunities

Teaching and research at the Global Development Institute covers a wide variety of topics and as a result our students can be found in a range of jobs and careers.

Modules

This module aims to guide students to develop an interpretive conceptual and experientially grounded understanding of the theoretical frameworks of HRP, in relation to topics such as resourcing, HRD, performance management and capability development
