The HRM courses (both undergraduate and postgraduate) are accredited by the CIPD and a number of colleagues are members of the CIPD who not only closely work with it but also do research and consultancy projects with them. Most colleagues use evidence from their research projects to support their teaching. For example, Pawan Budhwar uses his International HRM research to support his teaching on IHRM module. Similarly, Carole Parkes uses her ethics and sustainability research to support her Ethics module on the MBA programme.
Reports which are developed by researchers at the Centre for different funding bodies, are used to support teaching at Aston.
