Master of Science (MSc) in Human Resource Management (HRM)
Duration & Content
The MSc in Human Resource Management programme of the Edinburgh Business School now available in the region is offered in a variety of forms through Flexible Distance Learning with full support.
Students do not need to travel abroad at all. The Edinburgh Buiness School and its Approved learning Partner for the region iCon offer full academic and administrative support to students resident in the region.
Students receive live tuition via our online system and personalised support. All iCon tutors are approved by the Edinburgh Business School to provide tutorial and pastoral support to its students.
Students sit their examinations locally. So for example in Bulgaria the University arranges for examinations in Sofia. The same applies to all countries where a student is resident.
