The BA (Hons) Business Management degree pathways are suitable for those students interested in a future career in many areas of business especially if a student selects a specific pathway option. These degrees offer an excellent grounding in the main areas of business but also permit a level of specialism in the student's preferred field.
The BA (Hons) Business Management with Human Resource Management (HRM) degree (UCAS course code N1N6) is ideal for students who wish to gain a broad understanding of business while gaining an in-depth knowledge of Human Resource Management both in a practical and a theoretical context. The pathway aims to develop the learner’s understanding of organisations, the external environment in which they operate and how they are managed as well as supporting them to pursue the study of HRM.
The programme comprises a comprehensive portfolio of modules that provides flexibility for students to develop subject specific HRM knowledge and understanding appropriate to HRM areas such as people management and HR development. There is an opportunity for students to understand how the design, operation and strategy of organisations is developed and implemented, and to also appreciate how working in a diverse and multicultural environment affects human resource management.
As there is a strong qualitative element to many of the core HRM modules, this pathway will appeal most to students who have displayed an aptitude for business, management and organisational behaviour related subjects.
