MA in Human Resource Management (Advanced Entry)- Inclusive of Level 7 Pathway Diploma


The programme's primary objective is to deliver practical and realistic solutions to business-related strategic challenges backed by appropriate references to theoretical and conceptual analysis.

Globalisation means that effective and fair management of people is more vital than ever. In a turbulent, rapidly changing business environment, the demand for HR professionals who can strategically manage and develop staff potential – whilst overcoming issues such as redundancy, flexible working and the recent challenges of furloughed staff and social distancing – has never been more fundamental to business success. The programme meets the career enhancement needs of human resource (HR) managers, advisers, and administrators.

The programme comprises two phases; the first is the Level 7 Diploma in Human Resource Management, awarded by OTHM and delivered by the School of Business and Technology London. The second phase is the MA in Human Resource Management (Advanced Entry), delivered by the London Graduate School and awarded by the University of Buckingham. School of Business and Technology London partners with LGS to promote this programme.

Upon completing the programme, students are awarded an MA in Human Resource Management from the University of Buckingham. Additionally, students can attend the graduation ceremony held in the UK, celebrating their achievements.

Buckingham is unique. It is the only independent University in the UK with a Royal Charter and probably the smallest, with around 2,700 students (approx 1,600 on campus). The University campus is well known for being one of the most attractive locations in the region. The Great Ouse River, home to much wildlife, winds through the heart of campus. Each student mixes with over 100 other different nationalities, so being at Buckingham is just like being in a mini global village. These contacts, acquaintances and friendships carry on long after life at Buckingham is over.
