Course Overview

To bring conventional human resource management approaches into the modern era, the BA (Hons) Business Management (Human Resource Management) program was designed with assistance from researchers and world-renowned organisations. With the outmoded idea of the employee as a commodity for company success, the course will introduce you to the most recent HR ideas and practices.

Your course starts by assisting you in gaining broad knowledge in important areas of business management, such as human resource management and an introduction to how organisations operate. The formation of high-performance teams, talent management, rewarding performance, people analytics, and other important topics that you'll find necessary in the workplace are all covered in your second and third study levels.

The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and the Institute of Leadership and Management have both double-accredited this degree (ILM). You'll not only obtain a degree that is recognised but also a CMI Level 5 Certificate in Management and Leadership and an ILM Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management when you graduate. By doing this, you may demonstrate to potential employers that you possess the current knowledge and credentials necessary to address any shortages in the market.
