A Human Resources manager talks to an employee

Our MSc Human Resources Management programme at Birmingham Business School has been accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), recognising the value our course can have in developing future leaders in management.

CIPD accreditation means that our students receive an education that is underpinned by cutting-edge HR research and best practice, ensuring its relevancy for the challenges faced as a HR professional in the workplace. There is a demand for CIPD qualified employees in HR from recruiters, and completed a CIPD accredited course can improve employability.

Our MSc Human Resource Management course at the University of Birmingham places responsible business, decent work and good people management at the forefront of teaching and research. Our MSc HRM programme is distinctive in providing critical understanding of people management and the employment relationship in a ‘big picture’ national and global comparative context.

Professor Tony Dobbins, MSc HRM Programme Director, commented: “CIPD reaccreditation is an important endorsement of how our MSc HRM programme critically analyses the big issues impacting the world of work. Our graduates are encouraged to be independent critical thinkers and to 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”.
