Most UK schools have MBA in general management. Their specialist degrees are MSc degrees. The best programmes for HRM will be MSc degrees accredited by the CIPD, since that is the accreditation expected to work in HRM at the management level. See: http://www.best-masters.co.uk/ranking-master-human-resources-management.html

The main accreditation body for MBAs in the UK is AMBA. It requires three years experience for MBA applicants, and you will be well below the average at these schools even next year. Only the weaker MBAs, without AMBA accreditation will accept you: those weaker programmes are aimed at Indian students mostly, who often feel that the MSc title is not understood in India. Sheffield Hallam and Coventry are the schools without AMBA accreditation on the list above. I cannot recommend them, but if you really need an MBA rather than an MSc that is the place. But to work in the UK I would recommend an MSc with CIPD accreditation from a top school.

Hi,

Thanks for the information given by you and really its very useful for me. For the past one year i was struggled a lot to collect this particular information.

I need great advice from you. I applied for MBA International HRM through global opportunities at Coventry. Exactely, what you replied in your mail is true. Because, I got spot admission at coventry university london campus on 24th February 2014. But I asked many people for advice, do I need to continue with this university or not? but i don't have anyone to help in this point and i got continuous presser by the Global Opportunities agency , so I paid Rs. 6,50,000/- as tuition fees to that university. But I did not proceed to study after. Even still I am struggling with this and also I have funds crisis. Yesterday morning, I requested the university to send me the revised offer letter for MBA. Because, they refund my cash, which i already paid. Really, I got very useful information through your mail and now I don't know how to proceed further. Please advice.

Hi,

I have one more query. If I am doing MBA International HRM with Coventry University, whether this degree is eligible to get placements in UK industries.

Please clarify my doubt.

Hi,

If the University is offering MA Human Resource Management with CIPD award, can I proceed with this course or do I need to search for MSc HRM with CIPD award universities for job placements.

Please advice.

No, I don't think Coventry would clain to have a good placement rate for its MBA. Accredited MBAs require three years' work experience, so that is what UK employers look for with MBA roles. The Coventry programme would lead to the same roles as MA or MSc students here, but they are aimed at people returning to their own country.

If you really want to work in UK HRM, attend one of the top programmes on the best-masters ranking I linked to above. I'd guess that Strathclyde, Brunel, Aston, Leeds and Birmingham will be especially good options for placement.

Just to clarify, you have 6 years of total experience, right? Or does the two years overlap with the four?

If you do have a total of six years of work experience, I think that your experience plus a solid GMAT score would help you get into a ranked MBA program, which would give you much better post-MBA opportunities. Just to give you a sense of what would be competitive, Oxford's cohorts tend to have around 6 years of work experience and an average GMAT of 690.

Annapoorani, I believe you should certainly target top B schools as suggested by others in the discussion. However, do plan out your budget as well as the same also plays a key role in deciding the B schools. Also, take your GMAT so that you have a strong profile and can even look at some aid or support from the school.
