Course summary

Regardless of sector, the Human Resources professional who can motivate employees, whilst protecting the organisation from non-compliance, is highly sought after. Our BSc Business with Human Resource Management degree has been designed to reflect the national framework of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), making it highly practical, and reflective of HR best practice and the current needs of employers. We are in the process of applying for approval of the professional accreditation for the programme. The course is taught at our University of Salford campus close to Manchester city centre. This degree sets Human Resource Management (HRM) within the wider business context; you will develop an understanding of how organisations run while covering the key aspects of HRM such as employee engagement, awareness of organisational culture, effective communication and employment law. You will also build your personal portfolio of professional evidence which will enhance your CV and help you in job applications and interviews. The Foundation Year of the four-year programme aims to provide an understanding of the key subjects in business to meet the prerequisites for study on the associated degree programme. The key areas of study will be effective communication and study skills combined with key subjects in business. You will be introduced to basic theories and concepts within the disciplines to provide a basic knowledge in all related subject areas. The programme will introduce you to essential areas of business necessary for progression onto business, accounting or law degrees. You will learn how to apply business concepts to real-life organisations and develop communication, IT and study skills. Following completion of the Foundation Year, you will progress on to year one of your selected degree for the remainder three years of your course (four years if you are choosing to do the professional placement year).
