A successful business would not be able to function without effective Human Resource (HR) management: people are the heart of a thriving company. This Business and Management course is founded on real-life consultancy and will give you the skills to help people feel supported and valued in the workplace and the tools to manage them effectively. You'll study the theories and concepts that go into effective HR management and the support structures that underpin a happy working environment. You'll cover topics such as ethical practice in recruitment and management, and study current thinking in diversity and inclusion in the workplace. You'll explore new strategies for making the business environment an equitable and enjoyable space to work. By working in a consultancy capacity with brands such as Butlins, Oracle and Dorothy House, you'll be able to apply your knowledge in the real-world. You'll identify existing problems and propose strategies to solve them. When you graduate you'll be able to take your learning to the world of work as an effective people manager and team player.


In your first year, you'll gain a broad understanding of today’s business environment, from the context that organisations operate in, through to trends in economic thinking and the importance of data in business. Modules will cover topics such as organisations and the business environment; economics and globalisation; managing data. Year two focuses on the inner workings of businesses. Use business techniques to solve problems and start developing the skills that employers look for. Modules cover key themes including creativity and innovation in business. At the end of the year, you can choose to embark on a ten-month business placement or a ten-week summer placement – applying what you’ve learned so far in the real world. In the final year develop and explore your business learning, focusing on strategic human resource management. Undertake an in-depth business research project in human resource management. You’ll also have a chance to set up a business on your own or with fellow students. Other topics to explore include: managing sustainability; organisational strategy; new trends in management; cross cultural management in international business; and tourism: contemporary issues.
