Championing responsible employment and ethical people management
Globalization means that effective and fair management of people is more vital than ever. Graduates will be engaged with critical thinking to, ideally, become more ethically aware and morally responsible managers, employees and citizens, equipped to promote good people management ideas and practices in workplaces and wider society.
Human Resource Management graduates are in high demand from a wide range of top employers for their specialist skills. Our ever-growing relationship with key employers in the sector will provide you with the opportunity to meet and network with leading national and global organisations.
You will begin your studies with a HRM module that provides a foundation of the four core pillars of HRM function: resourcing organisations, developing organisations, reward at work and employment relations. You can then explore a variety of other topics through innovative modules such as The Future of Work. Modules cover theory and practice with guest speakers and practical exercises, as well as research-led academic insights and perspectives.

Accredited by the CIPD
Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), the professional body for HR practitioners, the MSc HRM programme at University of Birmingham provides students with the opportunity to initially become CIPD student members, granting access to CIPD resources in addition to existing academic resources through the University.
Upon successful completion of the MSc HRM, students who have already signed up for CIPD student membership are upgraded to Associate Member (Assoc CIPD), a professional qualification which can be used after their name. This is equivalent to the CIPD Level 7 standard. This only applies to students who exit with the full award. Students with HR work experience at the required level at this point can apply for the higher-level Chartered member (Chartered MCIPD) membership.
