Why locally qualified HR professionals need to upgrade?
Over 750 students qualify with locally accredited HR professional qualifications every year. In addition another 1000 graduates join the job market with an HR degree from local universities.

If you wish to rise above the ordinary, you need to equip yourself with a qualification that will provide you with a distinctively different qualification that leads to a clear competitive advantage. This is the only way to add glitter to your CV and avoid being an underemployed HR.

The MA (HRM) from University of Northampton is the only HR Masters from a GOLD Ranked British University available in Sri Lanka.
This programme of studies will enable Human Resource Management Professionals in Sri Lanka to build upon the professional knowledge and expertise gained through various local qualifications to be elevated to the level of a Master’s Degree from a world-class University. This will serve as the ‘gold standard’ in HR professional education and will create pathways for young Sri Lankan HR professionals to explore opportunities that demand globally recognised higher qualifications.
