I am planning on embarking on a Masters in HR this year.
I have been given unconditional offers from London Metropolitan University MA Human Resource & Employment Management and Greenwich University MA Personnel Development.
I am undecided between the two.
Greenwich: I like the mixture of theory with practical e.g. Arranging a trip to observe employment tribunal during the employment law module. On the other hand, although may sound pedantic, I think the name sounds quite old fashioned (using the word Personnel) and might give the wrong impression to potential employers.
London Metropolitan: Early start in February 2013, so I could get qualified quicker. However I have heard mainly negative reviews about the course or university although I can see it is a popular choice for students living and working in London.
There lies my quandry. I would really appreciate some advice to help me decide. If you were recruiting for Head of HR/HR Manager/HR Business Partner roles - which Masters would you find more appealing? Or is the university not as important as the obtainment of MCIPD?
Would really appreciate views/input/advice....
