Business and Human Resource Management with Business Foundation Year - Keele University

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. This course provides excellent preparation for a wide range of subjects relating to business, management, accounting, finance and economics. The Business Foundation Year has been developed in consultation with Keele Management School which has a long established and growing international reputation. Study of the theory of business and management goes hand in hand with investigation into up-to-date case studies and training in academic literacy, numerical and computational skills. After you have completed your Business Foundation Year, you could progress on to the Business and Human Resource Management course. The course is taught by dedicated staff with extensive research and practical experience in their field of study. During your studies, you will examine how organisations function within their wider political and economic environment; how they develop and deploy management and plan strategies to address future goals. You will critically compare different markets, organisation structures and strategies and their dynamic interrelationship with workers. The programme explores the formal and informal ways of regulating the employment relationship in the public, private and voluntary sectors. In the final year of study, you have the opportunity to develop research skills by completing independent research projects across all subject areas.
