The ability to recruit, motivate and manage employees effectively is considered one of the keys to success in business. Furthermore, ensuring that employees develop professionally is essential for achieving competitive advantages, given that people are one of the key resources in any business. This course focuses on the key role of people in a successful business. You will learn to understand the importance of the people behind the business and how they help the business prosper. Designed to give you a thorough grounding in core business skills and concepts, this degree provides you with in-depth knowledge and understanding of the key aspects of Human Resource Management, including how to source, develop, reward, and utilise employees to deliver strategic effects for organisations of all sizes and types. The extended degree course has been specifically designed to ensure that candidates gain the skills needed to succeed at degree level. For students who do not meet our standard entry requirements for admission to one of our undergraduate degree courses, ARU London offers the option of an extended four year degree course. Modules help to develop skills in writing assignments, mathematics, computing, public speaking and presenting, whilst developing an understanding of the modern business world. Prospective students should expect to undertake significant amounts of reading and independent study outside of the classroom (approximately 12 hours per week during term time). This course has particular appeal for candidates who want a change in career and candidates wanting to return to education. Our innovative courses ensure that what you learn can be practically applied to the business world as well as preparing you to tackle the academic workload of a full degree course.
