Managing people has always been one of the most challenging aspects of the manager's role. It is recognised as one of the most crucial business functions, as organisations seek to make more effective use of the creative energies and potential embodied in the people they employ.
The first year provides an introduction to employment issues and develops key business skills and an understanding of the broader business environment.
In the second year, you study issues such as the impact of HRM practices on firms' performance, managing change, business law, industrial relations, organisational culture, motivation and leadership.
In the final year, choose from a variety of options that address current issues and debates in HRM, and complete a dissertation.
