Subject

Human resource management

**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.

- **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.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This subject is much more common at postgraduate level, and so be aware that many of the good jobs in HR and personnel management go to graduates with Masters or other postgraduate qualifications in this subject. Work experience for first degree graduates can help to get around the lack of postgraduate qualifications, but if you want to go into management you might find that Masters to be an advantage. Although human resource roles are much the most common outcome for graduates from these courses, they take those jobs in an impressive array of industries so there are plenty of options for the kind of employer you can work for. If you would like to know about graduate prospects for your chosen course more specifically, head to an open day to talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
