The Masters degree at the University of Bradford provided me with everything I needed in order to secure a HR position with Morrisons.
Learning and assessment
You’ll apply your knowledge practically through case studies, project work and guest lectures, and debate the current challenges and dynamics affecting HR policy in an increasingly dynamic business and social environment.
There is a particular focus on ethical people management and social sustainability.
Assessment methods include exams, assessed essays, presentations, learning logs and an end of programme dissertation. The dissertation is a piece of research conducted in a business of your choice.
University of Bradford School of Management awarded Times Higher Education Business School of the Year 2021
The Times Higher Education Awards recognise outstanding achievements in UK higher education. The School of Management was recognised for our focus on economic and social regeneration.
Our award citation states "During the pandemic, the school focused its initiatives on helping graduates from disadvantaged backgrounds navigate the disrupted jobs market and on providing support for local businesses dealing with crisis trading conditions...The judges commended Bradford’s “inspiring” support for students, alumni, schools and local businesses."
The School of Management was also named Business School of the Year 2020 by the Educate North Awards
Students may have an opportunity to broaden their international experience by taking part in study tours embedded alongside our programmes throughout the year. Previous tours have included trips to Bahrain (Ahlia University) and Qatar (Qatar University).
These tours help our students to gain knowledge about international business and entrepreneurship, as well as providing opportunities to practice and develop communication and interpersonal skills. Students are given a hands-on opportunity to apply the knowledge they have gained in class, all whilst becoming more aware of diverse cultures and strengthening international relationships.
Students take part in a dynamic mix of both theory and practice-related activities including interactive problem-solving workshops, company visits, talks by guest speakers (from the public and private sector), cultural visits, and social activities
You'll be allocated a Personal Academic Tutor, who will provide you with personal guidance and support.
Module leaders and tutors are accessible, providing office hours and appointments in order to support your learning beyond class contact.
The Effective Learning Service (ELS) is a dedicated facility within the Faculty of Management, Law and Social Sciences, established to support our students to maximise their academic learning (e.g assignments and examinations), as well as help overseas students adapt quickly to UK academic requirements.
The ELS provides a huge range of services, including various workshops run during term time, 1-1 consultations and vast printed and online resources to cater for every possible development area.
These are in addition to the wide range of student support offered by the University of Bradford at the City Campus.
The strong research culture of the School of Management informs the teaching and learning of our students.
Our extensive industry networks provide the avenue for application of this knowledge.
All teaching staff are highly research-active, and publish widely. As much as is possible, teaching staff incorporate their own research into the teaching.
There is a dedicated HRM research methods course which teaches HRM practitioners how to conduct people management research and analyse their findings. Students complete a dissertation (practical research project) to address an actual issue in a business as their final assessment.
