MSc. Human Resource Management
This programme is aimed at professional managers, both those already working in the field of 'people management' and those who see their careers developing in that direction. The programme is designed to help managers develop the strategic, functional and personal competences required to meet the increasingly demanding roles of HR, whatever their present level of experience.
The programme is structured to reflect the roles now demanded of the HR professional:
- Strategic partner – working to align human resources with business strategy.
- Change agent – managing change processes to increase the effectiveness of the organisation.
- Administrative expert – working to improve organisational processes and deliver basic human resource services.
- Employee champion – listening and responding to employees' needs.
In addition to core HR concepts and techniques, the programme addresses the increasingly important interfaces between HR and other key business functions, including marketing and communications, information and communications technologies and knowledge management. Managing across these interfaces is seen as an important way in which HR can meet the key strategic aims of organisations.

Exemptions from specific core courses may be granted to holders of recognised academic or professional qualifications if they are of degree level and if they have been obtained by examination. Exemptions will be awarded if holders of approved qualifications can provide evidence of comparability of course content. There is no provision for exemptions from elective courses.
Typically, a maximum of one exemption is granted for an undergraduate degree majoring in a subject relevant to one of the core courses; for example, a bachelor's degree in Accounting may lead to an exemption from the Accounting course. Professional qualifications, obtained by examination, within 5 years of application, may also lead to exemptions. For example, within 5 years of application, may also lead to exemptions. For example, ACCA Part 3 holders may be eligible for exemptions in Accounting and Finance. In addition, those holders which passed the ACCA Part 3 courses in Advanced Taxation and Audit & Assurance Services may receive two credit transfers.
Eligibility for exemption is based on academic achievement only, not on work experience. If you wish to apply for an exemption you should complete the Exemption Application form and send it with supporting documentation and required fee to Edinburgh Business School, the sole authority on this matter. Where EBS rejects an application for an exemption, the fee paid is used to cover the examination fee in the relevant course.
