BA (Hons) Business and Human Resource Management is designed to develop your capabilities to work at a strategic level around attracting, developing and engaging the right people. With most contemporary organisations recognising that people are their most important asset, a career in Human Resources enables you to play a key role in organisational success. This course develops the key skills you need to understand and apply management research evidence and theory. Its key focus is on leading and managing organisations’ human resources ethically, responsibly and sustainably. You’ll study key concepts such as strategic resourcing, human resource development, employee relations, performance and reward, and employment law. At the same time, you’ll develop broader knowledge and understanding of the global business context. The course prioritises building professional practice capabilities through problem-based and experiential learning. This approach will equip you with the skills and qualities sought by employers across the private, public and not-for-profit (NFP) sectors that underpin successful enterprise. Between Years 2 and 3 we offer you the chance to undertake a work placement in the UK or overseas, or to study outside the UK with one of our long-standing partner institutions. It means you’ll gain crucial real-world experience, preparing you for professional employment or other enterprise-related activity. We’ll support you registering as a student CIPD member which will enable you to access member-only materials, as well as offer the opportunity to attend a wide range of events that provide a professional perspective on contemporary HR and to network with HR professionals in the field. When you successfully complete your course, we’ll recommend you for Level 5 CIPD professional membership as an Associate Member (Assoc. CIPD).
