MSc in HRM


va

Hello,

I have applied for a Master's in HRM and I hold offers from Henley Business School, Newcastle, Loughborough and Leeds, and I am waiting for a decision from Edinburgh and KCL. Which one do you think that I should choose taking in consideration industry relations, networking and career prospects?
I am an EU student and despite the fact that I like Loughborough's or Henley's programmes, many employers may not know these universities .
Do you think that I should apply to another scholl, as well?

Edinburgh and Leeds are certainly the strong choices for most students on that list. Given your goals, you should focus on CIPD-accredited programmes in schools with excellent careers services. In that respect, the MSc in management ranking is a good tool:- http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-management-2016 and add in the Placements column. Despite superficial differences, all CIPD-accredited courses will be rather similar. Might Durham's MSc pathway in HRM be an option?

Thank you for the reply. All courses are CIPD-accredited. I was not sure about Durham's programme but it may be worth applying to based on its reputation. What about Strathclyde?
Do you think that I should not consider Henley, Newcastle and Loughborough?

Strathclyde is excellent, especially at placement where I imagine it has an edge over most other schools. I am not sure if Durham as CIPD accreditation, by the way. I don't see a reason to consider schools with worse placement if your goal is placement.

Durham is not CIPD accredited. So, I guess that I should not consider it.
