Management with Human Resource Management BA (Hons)

Human Resource Management Degree

1. Overview

Our Human Resource Management degree covers the core business and HR disciplines, gaining an insight into how people work in organisations.

This course explores the theoretical and practical aspects of Human Resource Management, with an emphasis on the vital contribution to business success made by the people of an organisation. Human Resource Management is broadly defined as all those activities associated with the management of employment relationships. It is concerned with developing structures and systems which promote the effective management of people, working closely with senior managers, line managers and the various departments of organisations to build, maintain and develop an effective workforce.

The course will prepare you for a human resource management or managerial career in industry or the public sector. Specialised careers include recruitment consultant, employee relations officer, training and development officer, HR officer, and talent and learning specialist.

This course includes the opportunity to undertake a one-year salaried placement working with companies locally, nationally or internationally.

4. Placements and accreditations

Each of the courses within the Management Programme offers the opportunity to undertake a one-year salaried placement. Through our placement opportunities, you can work with small, medium or large companies based locally, nationally or internationally and undertake real jobs, with real salaries and real responsibilities.

Many of our placement students have had the opportunity to go on business trips, work with senior managers and directors, and take responsibility for their own projects.

We have also had a small number of students run their own company instead of participating in a traditional placement. These students are given business advice by academic staff from our Centre for Entrepreneurship and assigned to an industry mentor.
