Our flexible Management degrees share a common first year before allowing you to focus on your chosen specialism to enhance your career prospects. With over 90 course units to choose from, you really can shape your own degree.

BSc (Hons) Management (Human Resources) with Industrial/Professional Experience concentrates on the broad area of human resource management plus employment policy and practice, industrial relations, organisational psychology and organisational analysis, with choices to focus on both the UK and international level. It includes a work placement in your penultimate year and is designed to encourage you to gain a critical awareness of how people are managed in organisations.

To graduate with BSc (Hons) Management (Human Resources), you need to have studied at least 40 credits of second-year options (one third of your studies) and at least 60 credits of final-year options (half of your studies) from the Human Resources subject area.

Since the Management and Management (Specialism) degrees are identical in the first year, transfer between them is straightforward, so you should apply for only one of them.

Aims

This course aims to promote critical awareness of the merits and complexities of management and to instill an appreciation of the association between theory and practice. It aims to introduce you to important new developments in the field of management and to enable you to develop appropriate practical and transferable skills.

Special Features

  • Study a broad-based management degree whilst specialising in human resources.

  • Your chosen specialism will be reflected in your final degree title - BSc (Hons) Management (Human Resources).

  • Don't want to specialise? Graduate with BSc (Hons) Management.

  • Includes a work placement in your penultimate year of study.
