Managing employees is a complex task, requiring a specific, dynamic skillset. Analysis and management of human behaviour is in constant flux; and as a result, educational programmes for HRM professionals constantly grow and evolve. This programme trains students in the latest and most practically sound management techniques, and develops the ability to think strategically about management and organisational change.
This programme consists of two stages; the EduQual Diploma in Business Management (Human Resource Management) and the Top Up programme. Upon completion, the student will be awarded an MA in Human Resource Management from the University of Northampton. The EduQual Diploma teaches students practical, relevant Strategic HRM knowledge. It lays a strong foundation for the student; providing the skills and knowledge to continue with the second stage of the programme.
The Top-Up programme builds upon what was taught previously, further developing the HRM skills set. Additionally, the programme is designed to broaden your specialist knowledge.

In line with our commitment to enhance our students’ study experience, London School of Marketing is determined to provide as many different learning opportunities to our students as possible.
As a result of our recent student survey, some students have suggested us to arrange supporting face-to-face workshops, to complement their studies with us. These will be provided in addition to the usual personal tutor support provided by our tutor panel. These workshops are suitable to any of our undergraduate or master’s degree students and they are designed to enhance the student’s understanding of research, methodology and other essential study skills.
It is our intention to make these workshops as interactive as possible, with discussion groups, interactive activities and presentations, taking place throughout the workshop. Further, students will have plenty of opportunities to interact with fellow students and discuss and learn from their study experiences as well.
These workshops are delivered in London by London School of Marketing’s well-experienced panel of lecturers and students will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in further discussions both during and after the workshops.
