You will study Investigating a Business Issue from a HR Perspective as a core module. The remaining two modules are optional and determined via employer and student surveys. This ensures that we deliver modules that are appropriate for the needs of you and your employer. Examples of option modules available include: Managing Employee Relations, Performance Management, Employment Law, Learning and Talent Development, and Understanding and Implementing Coaching and Mentoring.
Be prepared for a challenge: the pace will be fast. Instead of relying on theory, the course is based on 'problem and practice-based learning', where real and live business issues provide the foundation of your study. Whilst some of these issues form part of the core teaching, many will be drawn from your experiences in Human Resources and those of your fellow colleagues.
This means you'll work collaboratively with well-known organisations, fellow professionals and teaching staff to tackle real-world, authentic problems at every stage. Applying yourself to practical problems will help you develop the skills that you need more quickly and more robustly than conventional classroom learning.
