Programme Brief



Built around the key roles of Human Resource Management, this programme will help develop the HR Manager’s strategic, functional and personal skills.

Ask any organisation to identify the key to their success and they’ll say “our people”, but for those people to perform at their best, they need to work in an atmosphere in which they feel valued and rewarded. The HR professional is one of the keys to delivering just that.

This programme will enable managers, whatever their present level of experience, to develop the strategic, functional and personal skills they need to meet the increasingly demanding roles of HR. The programme also addresses the increasingly important interfaces between HR and other key business functions, including marketing and communications, information and communications technologies and knowledge management.

The areas of study include the HR function as strategic partner, change agent, administrative expert and employee champion. It also addresses the interface between HR and other key business functions. Graduates of the MSc will come away with invaluable insights, increased understanding and new knowledge.

There are two tuition intakes per year for all courses:

  • January - May
  • July - November

Exemptions from specific 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.

University regulations do not permit exemptions to be granted for degrees obtained at the same level.

Therefore, exemptions are not awarded to holders of another Master degree even if it was obtained from Heriot-Watt University. Professional qualifications obtained by examination within two years of application may also lead to exemptions being awarded.

For example, CHRP (Canada) holders may be eligible for exemption from Organisational Behaviour. Exemptions will be awarded if holders of approved qualifications can provide evidence of comparability of course content. Guidelines on the award of exemptions are available online.

If you wish to apply for an exemption you should complete the relevant section of the Programme Entry Form or download and complete the Exemption Application Form and submit it with the required supporting documentation to Edinburgh Business School, who are the sole authority on this matter.

Eligibility for exemption is based on academic achievement only, not on work experience.

For further information on exemptions please see below link and student handbook:
