Human Resource Management - Manchester Metropolitan University

**Overview** Well-led, well-chosen, well-supported people make all the difference to any organisation. That’s what makes HR Managers so valuable – and the career possibilities in this field so exciting. There are few aspects of business more fundamental than people: they’re a vital ingredient of any organisation. It’s down to the HR professionals to deal with a vast range of business-critical issues, shaping workplace policies like redundancy, maternity leave and rewards, and supporting strategic decisions on areas like recruitment. The best HR Managers have an in-depth understanding of how organisations operate and what the business objectives are – helping them advise employees and represent the workforce. We’ll help you explore the latest thinking in the subject, starting with first principles of managing people, analysing information and handling accounts. From there, you’ll expand into topics like sustainability and psychology, with the chance to specialise in the areas that interest you most. And, in your final year, you’ll also be able to pick your own subject as a research topic. By the time you graduate, you won’t just have a good knowledge of the role, you’ll also have a deeper understanding of the business and legislative landscape. In other words, you’ll leave ready to conquer the HR world. **Features and Benefits** - **CIPD qualification opportunity** – add a Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) Intermediate Level Diploma to your CV. - **Study in Manchester** – an international city home to a huge range of organisations, from small creative agencies to large corporations. - **Placements** – discover what it’s like to work in Human Resource Management through our excellent industry connections, or study abroad at one of our international partner institutions. - **Learn a different language** – boost your international employment prospects by studying a language as part of your degree. - **Regular industry events** – attend guest talks and masterclasses delivered by leading professionals and network with recruiting businesses at key industry events. - **Employability** – as part of the course you’ll also develop the key soft skills employers are looking for, including team work, communication, leadership and confidence.
