Overview of the programme
The MA HRM programme at Glyndŵr has undergone a complete facelift. The result is a more flexible, exciting and inspiring course designed to deliver good HR practice. The programme team focused on developing HR professionals and are passionate about giving you the tools you need to develop a successful career in Human Resources.
Working closely with the UK Professional Body (CIPD), the programme has aligned its module structure to the CIPD’s Advanced Diploma. For those students who are seeking a development opportunity without signing up to the full programme, there is the option to study individual modules for Continuous Professional Development purposes too.
In addition to the programme, Glyndŵr University is working hard to build its reputation as a hub of HR. The programme has established links with the new Mid and North Wales CIPD branch and also the HR Directors Regional Forum and will be encouraging students to get involved to help establish their HR peer network.
The programme also includes a field trip to the CIPD conference to support the programme (conference cost is not covered by programme fees) and there will be a continued focus on delivering a dynamic HR Events Calendar, providing access to some of the leading thinkers in HR.
The course is relevant for Human Resource Management professionals in all types of organisation within the UK and internationally and aimed at experienced middle or senior level managers or HR professionals. Consequently they are likely to have relevant work experience as well as hold appropriate formal educational qualifications suitable for a Masters programme.
The programme makes sure students not only develop the knowledge they need, but also provides them with the know how to apply that knowledge and develop their skills as professional practitioners.
The MA HRM Programme team are all practitioners themselves, who work in the various specialism’s within HRM. This means the tutors can support students with a real understanding of what it means to be an HR practitioner and are up to date in regards to what challenges organisations in a wide range of sectors are facing. They can also easily demonstrate the links between theory and practice.
