What is the Master of Business (Human Resource Management Stream)?
The Master of Business (Human Resource Management Stream) provides the student with the opportunity to greatly enhance their specialist subject knowledge, experience innovative learning methods and explore opportunities arising from innovation, change and business development. Students achieve this through participation in class activities and through involvement in a series of events including those organised by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).
Our School is an accredited centre for the CIPD professional body and the MBS - (Human Resource Management Stream) awards associate membership of the CIPD which is a global qualification.
