By focusing on the importance of close integration between staff, management and the needs of the business, and looking at how a company attracts, retains, motivates and manages its people, this business and human resource management course gives you the practical business tools and professional judgement to confidently approach employment in a competitive field.
What's covered in the course?
This course demonstrates clearly how recruiting the right employees – and enthusing and empowering them – benefits business performance. The business element offers a sharp focus on the way organisations operate in their market, how imaginative ideas can solve stubborn problems, and how you can think and act like an entrepreneur.
You initially explore issues such as Economic Environment, Accounting and Finance, Managing Organisations, People and Self, Marketing in Business and New Venture Creation, as well as expanding your professional outlook with an extended induction programme.
The second year investigates Creative Problem Solving, Business Operations and Logistics, The Business Entrepreneur and Contemporary Business Issues. You also study Legal Aspects of HR, Contemporary Issues in HR and HRM Resourcing and Development.
Following your optional placement year, you could explore International Business Strategy, Business Operations and Systems, as well as International HRM and HRM Relations and Rewards.
As part of your final assessment, a placement project or dissertation lets you put together a professional document investigating an area of your choice.
