Founded in 2002, the MSc Strategy, Innovation and People Management (SIPM) is a broad-based programme integrated around the three meta-factors critical for success in the digital, knowledge-based, global economy. The programme provides a thorough conceptual grounding in theory (both seminal and current) combined with applied understanding and analysis of practice. The MSc SIPM fosters critical thinking, develops long-term career capabilities and equips graduates to work in a wide variety of roles in a broad range of industry settings. The MSc SIPM is accredited at the Advanced Standards Level (the highest achievable) by the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD), the largest professional HR body globally.
Normally a Second Class Honours undergraduate degree, usually a Grade 1, or a H2.1 in the Higher Diploma in Business Studies, is required (or equivalent international qualification). Practical experience providing exposure to the strategic, innovation and human resource issues confronting organisations would be an advantage.
