Course description

Our degrees in Business and Management Studies, Human Resource Management, International Business and Management, and Marketing all share the same modules in first year. This means students gain a foundation of essential business knowledge from a leading business school. It also allows students to transfer to one of the four in the second year if they discover a new passion. We are one of only nine UK Universities to have international membership of the International Student Exchange Programs (ISEP), giving our students links to 280 universities in 41 worldwide destinations. In our four year programmes our students have the opportunity to spend a year on placement in industry during their third year of their course. These are real paid jobs. The Faculty of Management and Law has an excellent network of organisations that offer placements including IBM, Vauxhall, NHS, GE Money, Pace, Enterprise Rent A Car, Cummins and Peugeot. Together we ensure your placement is appropriately challenging and that you can make a real and positive impact on the business. Our students study alongside leading business professionals and benefit from networking with 30, 000 high calibre alumni worldwide.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
This subject is much more common at postgraduate level, and so be aware that most 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. 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.
