Cardiff University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Our four-year BSc Business Management programmes share a generic first year, during which you will take seven compulsory modules from across the range of business disciplines, providing a broad understanding of business and management contexts and processes.
The BSc Business Management (Human Resources Management) programme builds on the foundation of general business modules, such as strategy, information, finance and accounting, operations and marketing, by examining:
•the design and function of work and organisations;
•the regulatory environment and the societal context surrounding the workplace
•and the techniques that are used to manage people at work.
This approach ensures that you received a thorough general foundation in the business disciplines as well as an HRM specialism. The programme reflects the growth of the HR profession and the increased focus on people management in many organisations across both the public and private sectors.
This course will also provide you with the necessary business management skills and knowledge, both theoretical and practical, through the professional placement year, to take on responsible positions early in a variety of careers in various sectors of industry and commerce, and in various functional areas within organisations.
