Master International Human Resource Management Full Time - Máster en Recursos Humanos Internacionales
Full-time - 1 year plus dissertation
Building upon the expertise available in the University, the programme focuses on the management of human resources in international companies and the issues associated with the management of international staff. Members of the programme are also encouraged to develop research skills in a business environment through the Masters dissertation, which represents the culmination of the programme.
A distinctive feature of the full-time Human Resources MSc programme´s learning experience is that for half of the modules per semester students will probably share classes with practising HR professionals following the part-time Masters route. These students, typically aged 25 - 35, work in HR departments in London while studying for the professional CIPD qualification. This exposure to HR professionals considerably enhances the learning experience.
