Our Human Resource Management degree equips you with the tools you need to develop the high-performing personnel and innovative teams demanded by business. This BA (Hons) course teaches you about the importance of motivating and managing people within a business, showing you the link between successful performance and the people you employ. Drawing upon all aspects of people management enables you not only to gain the building blocks of knowledge and understanding but also a high degree of professional competence in the field of people management and development. This degree course is aligned with the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). This means that the course is as professionally relevant and up-to-date as possible, taking into account the very latest developments in the profession. On all of our programmes you will gain a professional focus and real world experience of human resource management, ensuring you are equipped to make an immediate impact in the business world. You have the opportunity to embark on a year-long sandwich placement as part of your degree course. Everything we do starts with business so naturally we have strong links with key organisations in the local community, such as Birmingham City Council and the NHS, and accrediting bodies such as the CIPD, bringing you closer to industry professionals and providing you with key contacts. You’ll hear from leading industry speakers, who will offer relevant, contemporary advice and insight into the latest sector developments. Recognising the global scope of business, all our programmes have an international focus. This is embedded throughout the curriculum, giving you the opportunity to transform your experience with us into a global one. There are a variety of exciting possibilities open to you, ranging from our successful international travel scholarships scheme, through which you can spend a summer working for a charitable organisation overseas, to one of our many overseas study exchange programmes. Our enthusiastic, approachable staff, who come from all areas of Human Resource Management with some currently still practising privately, have designed every module to bring the key principles to life, with built-in employability and research skills. We use real life case studies and hold mock tribunals so your experience is as close as possible to industry practice. The course will prepare you for modern management alongside your HRM specialisation, whether you choose to work for a multinational company, the public sector or a not-for-profit organisation.
