The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) is a leading HR professional body in the world and is ‘increasingly recognised by large employers outside the UK as a standard for human resource practice’ (CIPD, 2010). Both our MSc Human Resource Management (HRM) and our MSc International HRM meet the new requirements of this professional body.
GCU was one of the first CIPD approved centres in the U.K. to meet the CIPD’s recently revised Advanced Level requirements and achieve optimal accreditation of student learning. Completion of either programme provides the ‘full knowledge bank’ required for CIPD membership. Graduates will be eligible to apply immediately for Associate Membership or Chartered Membership, when they demonstrate to the Institute, sufficient relevant work experience at the appropriate professional level.
