By completing the IMI Diploma in Strategic Human Resource Management, you will:
‘Building Competitive Advantage through People’
‘Building High Performance People, Teams and Organisations’
‘Fast Culture Change’
‘New competencies for the new performance professional / Crafting high performance’
‘Attracting, selecting, testing, stretching and developing people that make a real difference’
‘Creating and maintaining High Engagement'
The programme focuses directly on developing techniques for addressing workforce engagement in the challenging contemporary environment.
The programme philosophy is based upon empowering managers to lead their organisations as positive coaches and assertive managers.
Each year the IMI Diploma in Strategic Human Resource Management attracts a diverse cohort of experienced HR managers from a wide range of industries and backgrounds who are intently focused on broadening their knowledge and developing their skills. Throughout the year you will work closely with your class colleagues and you will leave the programme with a valuable network of business contacts and friends.
Real-life human resources case studies relating to major programme themes will be regularly analysed in class. These will include analysis of human resource challenges in a variety of Irish and multinational contexts – bringing major issues to the fore in robust classroom debate.
IMI’s teaching methods feature intensely practical classroom exercises and group activities designed to accelerate the transfer of learning back to the workplace. Our unique approach features the use of ‘HR Practice Challenges’ where you will be tasked with solving real-life, practical workplace challenges for both your and your fellow classmates’ businesses.
Over the duration of the programme you will build a comprehensive HR strategy. As well as being part of the assessment process this document often doubles as a practical HR blueprint for many of our participants’ organisations.
A key, tangible, takeaway from the programme is a cutting edge, proven toolkit of frameworks, models and techniques to enable you to develop: • a change strategy • a communications strategy • an implementation plan
IMI faculty have a unique blend of academic qualifications and real world business acumen. This combines with their unrivalled business experience working with practicing managers to create a truly dynamic classroom experience.
Faculty include thought leaders from Ireland and abroad, and a series of senior executive guest speakers from the worlds of HR and high performance. Recent speakers have included Kieran Mulvey (Chief Executive of the Labour Relations Commission), John Conway (former Group HR Director at AIB) and Gary Keegan (Director of the Irish Institute of Sport).

“Studying Strategic HR at the IMI allowed me the time to step outside my own organisation and objectively view our processes while critically reviewing how HR was supporting the company’s strategy. The Strategic HR programme equipped me with the tools to successfully articulate HR concepts and to make valuable contributions at senior executive level. I would recommend this programme for HR individuals who want to take their careers a step further and contribute at senior level.”
Patricia Conlon, Human Resources Manager
“I was unsure if I was making the right course choice. However, having completed the programme I am truly amazed at the breadth and depth of knowledge that I have gained and the fact that it was delivered in such a focused way. Strategic HRM is truly cutting edge and an essential tool for any business, whether your business is in a period of decline or growth, HR professionals or business owners will benefit from this programme.”

By completing any two IMI Diplomas and a Business Research Project within a five year timeframe, you will earn 90 credits (the national standard for a Masters Qualification) and will be conferred the title ‘Master of Business’. The Master of Business and its constituent IMI Diplomas are accredited and awarded by University College Cork - National University of Ireland, Cork.
...And you’re there!
A key feature of the Master of Business (MoB) is its flexible timeframe, which allows you to tailor your participation around work/life demands. Whereas each of the three MoB steps takes approximately six months to complete, you have a five year window within which to complete all three steps and attain the MoB.
Therefore, depending on your preference, you can complete the MoB in two years, or within up to five years.
Unlike traditional MBAs and Business Masters, the IMI’s MoB is driven by an intensely practical, action learning philosophy. Throughout the MoB, classroom learning is applied to real-life business challenges via exercises, group work, case studies and projects that centre on both your day-to-day work and the challenges currently facing your organisation. Both you and your organisation will derive genuine real-world benefit from your participation.
If you have earned a Level 9 award from another academic institution, or if you completed an IMI Diploma since October 2008, you may be considered eligible to proceed directly to the second stage of the MoB.
There are no formal entry criteria. However, this is a demanding programme and suitability of candidates will be assessed at a pre-programme discussion with the programme director. The purpose of the discussion is to ensure a good fit between the candidate and the diploma programme. Several years’ work experience at management level will normally be expected.
Successful participants will be awarded the IMI Diploma in Strategic Human Resources Management.
This qualification is accredited and awarded by University College Cork - National University of Ireland, Cork.
The IMI Diploma in Strategic HR Management is academically equivalent to a Postgraduate Certificate (level 9) Minor Award on the National Framework of Qualifications.
By completing this award, you will also earn one-third of the credits required to be awarded the IMI Master of Business qualification.
