As the nature of work changes, organisations face challenges in recruiting, motivating, developing and retaining the workforce of the future. As a result, HR managers need to understand the future demographic, technological and societal shifts, and prepare themselves accordingly.
With an increasing emphasis on globalisation, companies need experts who understand the global and comparative background to Human Resource Management and Development in the international business environment. This advanced level programme will give you the requisite knowledge and skills to work in a broad range of HR roles in an international context.
This course is designed for graduates with an interest in Human Resource Management and Development careers. By the time you finish the programme, you will have developed as a manager of people by acquiring specialist knowledge that you will be able to apply in practice. You will gain a global perspective on Human Resource Management & Development themes and specifically focus on comparative employment relations and employment law in a variety of national settings.
The programme is block delivered and there are several entry points throughout the year. You will take the modules below in a sequence dependent on your start date.
The course is delivered in four 30 credit blocks of intensive study periods. For each block, you will study a single module for a 6-week period. Face-to-face teaching is delivered on campus for 6 hours each week. In addition, you will attend the taught element of the Industry Collaboration Project one afternoon a week during the 6-week blocks.
During this year, you will also undertake independent study in your own time with online support through the University’s virtual learning environment, Blackboard.
You will complete your Master’s degree with the 60 credit Industry Collaboration Project. You will be able to choose to investigate a business issue either via a dissertation or a paid six month placement.
SEMESTER 3Industry Collaboration Project (ICP)
This module accounts for the final 60 credits of your degree and gives you the opportunity to examine an issue that is important to an organisation. The Industry Collaboration Project offers four different options: a Work Placement, a three month Internship, the applied Dissertation and, from September 2019, the Entrepreneurship path. You will be allocated a supervisor to mentor you through your chosen project and receive support wherever necessary from the Salford Business School Employability Team. For all options students are encouraged to address a real organisational issue, and to disseminate their work to a wider audience, meaning that you can create real impact through your Industry Collaboration Project.
Through this option, along with applying your theoretical knowledge from the taught elements of the programme, you will develop the transferable skills and qualities required for entrepreneurial behaviour and work on your own innovative business idea. You will reflect on business opportunities, challenges and strategies with the aim of establishing a new businesses, or incorporating entrepreneurial thinking into the management of an existing organisation. The three month Entrepreneurship path will be assessed through the development of an Initial Business Proposal and an 8,500 word Comprehensive Business Proposal accompanied by a 30 minute presentation.
