Two Masters programmes in Human Resources have secured accreditation from a leading industry body.

The MA Human Resources and Consulting and the MSc Human Resource Management, will both be accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). This means that students who successfully complete the programme will also gain the equivalent of a CIPD Advanced Level Diploma, which will provide them with professional level of membership of the CIPD, Associate (Assoc CIPD).

Dr Dermot O’Reilly, programme director of the MA Human Resource and Consulting said: “This accreditation is a ringing endorsement of our blend of theory and practice. It is an acknowledgement of the professional skills and knowledge that our graduates achieve, and will aid them in their own career development.”

Dr Pete Thomas, director of the MSc Human Resource Management, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to increase their employability and enhance their competitiveness in the HR job market.”

The CIPD is the professional body for HR and people development. The independent and not-for-profit organisation provides and commissions independent research on the world of work. It has more than 140,000 members across the world, and offers professional training and accreditation for those working in HR and learning and development.
