Management (Human Resources)

A manager's role often includes people management, appointing, job design, promoting, rewarding and motivating; this course will prepare students for these responsibilities. Students will develop a good understanding of all of the major functions of management, with an emphasis on human resource management (HRM); in addition to knowledge of the key management functions, such as international marketing, accounting, organisational behaviour and international strategy, students will develop transferable skills such as leadership, consultancy and cross-cultural negotiation.

Entry requirements

Individual offers may vary; normally a good Honours degree or equivalent is required; work experience is useful but not essential; applicants with non-standard entry qualifications will be considered; if students are unsure whether they meet the entry requirements they should contact the school; in order to benefit from, contribute to and enjoy the course, a good command of spoken and written English language is required; if English is not the student's 1st language they will need English language proficiency equivalent to an overall IELTS score of at least 6.5, with 6 in the written test.

Course modules

Practical experience is central to the course; students will have opportunities to visit companies and meet senior managers; use specialised diagnostic and management development tools; develop consultancy skills during consultancy skills workshops and gain work experience through an employment-based project.
