Hi, I'm due to start a p/t Masters in HRM in September. I don't currently work in HR but have business/sales background. I am struggling to decide whether to study the standard HRM or the International Course? I was thinking of International because so many companies are international these days and I currently work for a large international company ( although I don't know if I'd ever get an HR job with them). I feel that the International option would give me more options but at the same time that I will miss out on learning about UK law and UK situations - and it is the UK I will be working in whether or not for an international company.
Anyone in HR got any views on this? Will it really matter which one I study in terms of employment prospects?
Go for one that is CIPD accredited. In order to become a Chartered Member of the CIPD you need a level 7 accredited qualification and 3 years experience. A CIPD accredited qualification will also stand in good stead when applying for jobs in HR.
