Canterbury Christ Church University has joined forces with the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) to launch a postgraduate qualification.
The HRM Business Partnership programme is jointly validated by the CIPD and will give students membership of the professional body once they have successfully completed the course.
Maureen Morgan, a senior lecturer at the university’s business school, said: “The new MA in HRM Business Partnership is building a collaborative approach in which every party benefits.
“The student works with their manager to add value to the organisation. The organisation develops an individual who is committed to partnering, collaborative knowledge-sharing and relationship-building and also gains a supportive partnership relationship with the university.”
