Course Title: Master of Science in Human Resource Management
The course is aimed at graduates who have already obtained a bachelor degree in a cognate discipline (including HRM, business, psychology, sociology and law) who have achieved an honours grade (2.2) or higher, with work experience are eligible to apply. Candidates with ordinary level degree qualifications in cognate disciplines and appropriate work experience may also be considered as non-standard applicants and their applications will be assessed by a standing committee in the College of Business.
This new MSc in Human Resource Management level 9 course, located at Aungier Street, draws on the acknowledged excellence of the staff at TU Dublin in this disciplinary area. The course is offered by the School of Management which has a close working and collaborative relationship with the key professional body, Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD UK & Ireland) and the course is structured in line with CIPD professional requirements.
This course fully accredited by CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development).
The philosophy of the programme is to help people see the big picture in terms of viewing the world in a more sustainable, strategic context and making evidence-based decisions that drive continuous improvement in your organisation by compiling results and celebrating them accordingly. The programme also believes that future HR specialists and the wider management community need to embrace and practice the concept of a manager as a coach that allows all learners and employees the opportunity to reflect and create time for continuous improvement.
