About this course

The MSc Human Resources and Organisations is a challenging one-year programme designed to prepare students for outstanding careers in people management and human resources. Grounded in LSE’s critical and analytical approach to learning, the programme provides a unique bridge between theory and practice. Not only will you develop critical thinking skills as an adaptive, innovative and strategic manager, but you will also gain a clear understanding of the practical issues which organisations face today in managing individuals and workforces.

All students will gain core knowledge in the general foundations of HR management and strategy. Building on this foundation, students will then develop their learning into three distinct streams, offering the opportunity to specialise according to your specific career goals and interests:

  • Human Resource Management (HRM) stream
  • International Employment Relations (IER) stream
  • Organisational Behaviour (OB) stream

Career development

The HRO programme will develop your intellectual and practical skills as a talented and well-rounded manager of human resources within organisations, with the ability to thrive and innovate with challenges in today’s complex and fast-moving business world.

With a strong foundation of knowledge in general HR management, plus specialist knowledge from your chosen stream, and practical skills developed with case studies and practical projects, you will graduate with a unique and well-rounded portfolio of skills and knowledge to set you apart in the job market. Your practical and professional management skills will be developed and polished during the programme, including communication and presentation skills, team working, cultural intelligence gained from close collaboration with classmates from around the world, and an opportunity for client management experience from the Links Scheme project.

How to Apply

You must apply for your chosen stream using the correct application code (see overview page). Before making your application it is vital that you take the time to research and choose the stream suitable for you.

Successful applicants will receive an offer for a specific stream. Switching to a different stream may not be possible as it depends on availability and fit with the other cohort. Therefore, please ensure you choose your stream carefully.

Applicants should also be aware that the additional fee for the HRM stream cannot be refunded if students switch to a different stream when the programme starts.

Your application will be considered on its academic merits. An offer of a place may be conditional on attending additional courses and/or passing qualifying examinations at a suitable standard, in addition to your degree. You should note that there are always many more applications than places available at LSE and possession of the minimum entrance requirements does not guarantee that you will be offered admission. It is therefore in your interests to apply as early as possible.
