Hi all,

I completed my MA in HR Management back in September 2013. I just wanted to check whether this had the same resonance/value as the CIPD level 7 qualification? I was under the impression that it did as it was approx. two years of study at postgrad level although I've just been told otherwise!

Any clarification would be much appreciated!


  • I also thought it was? I gained my MA after firstly studying a year post graduate which at the time gained me licentiate membership of the CIPD and then went on to study a further 2 years for my masters and initially gained graduate CIPD membership which has since been changed to associate. I didn't think I could get a higher qualification than my masters unless going on to do a Phd? I also wouldn't mind having this clarified if that's not the case.
