Human Resource Management
Human Resource Management is a key business area because attracting, training and retaining the right staff directly affects the performance of a business. This course focuses on core human resource management areas and examines how leaders develop and motivate their employees for maximum output. You will also analyse issues such as the relations between employers and employee organisations (e.g. trade unions), the structure of labour markets and the wider impact an organisation can have on a variety of stakeholders and its local community. Cross-cultural management skills are incorporated and you may choose to include a language as part of your studies, enhancing your employability with businesses that operate internationally. We also offer a four-year route where you have the opportunity to spend your third year on an industry placement or studying overseas, after which you will return to study for your final year.
