Course summary

Course Overview

Human Resource Management is all about ensuring that people are managed and treated fairly. By recruiting, retaining, and developing the talent in a business, you can keep ahead of the competition. To ensure future success, companies are constantly on the lookout for skilled and qualified HR advisers and managers. Employers want graduates who are not just academically qualified, but are also work-ready with professional skills in management and leadership.

This course will help meet this need and equip you with the skills to become a confident and successful HR manager.

Become business-ready

For the new generation of managers, change is the only consistency. This programme equips you with not only the knowledge and understanding of contemporary best practice in strategic HR management, but develop the personal skills required to prepare you for your first roles in management.

Our degree will help you gain an understanding of contemporary HR theory and practice, but also recognise the key issues which impact on organisations. This will allow you to build up a full picture of the business needs which will prove invaluable when you graduate.

It is aimed at those who wish to develop a strong understanding of the nature of business and HR management in a world of volatility, uncertainty, change and ambiguity. A key feature of the programme is to blend both academic study and skills development in order to enhance the employability of our graduates.

You will gain opportunities to develop key skills, such as empathy, problem solving and creatively, which will ensure you are well placed to enter the employment market.

Practical learning

The course focuses on the ability to think critically and will enable you to develop and evaluate solutions to complex, real-life problems. We focus on equipping you with the knowledge of contemporary management theories, but of equalimportance, the opportunity to apply and integrate that knowledge in live projects. The programme’s practical aspects are intrinsically linked to the study of new and emerging theories in Human Resources and general business, both in the UK and internationally.

We use live project examples wherever possible so that you can apply your learning and see how it all fits within the business world. Guest lecturers will be used throughout the programme to also demonstrate the relevance of the teaching in a business context.

What are my career prospects

On successful completion of this degree, you will be able to pursue a range of opportunities and careers in HR and general management, or to develop your own businesses. You can also choose to progress your professional qualifications through, for example, the study of a MA in HRM, the MA Leadership and Management or an IMBA at the University.
