Course content

What will you study on the BA Business Management (Human Resource Management) (Top-up)?

You will develop key business skills, knowledge and experience in order to excel in a management career. Companies and organisations require graduates who have expert business knowledge, who can also demonstrate analytical and problem solving skills, and the professional acumen to deal with challenges in a fast-paced business environment.

Through two compulsory modules you will focus on strategic management and leadership, and management development. You will also choose one option from: Service Provision; Facilitating Creativity; Personal and Organisational Development; Equality, Diversity and Inclusion; and also choose either an internship or research project.

What will you gain?

You will learn to work effectively in teams, and be able to present and communicate business management ideas with confidence. We also ensure you develop specialist knowledge in:

  • Stakeholders: their expectations and behaviour
  • The environment of business and its impact on strategy
  • Design, production and distribution of products and services
  • Business resources: acquisition, application and control
  • Business process: planning, improvement and control

Leadership and Management Development (30 credits) – Compulsory

This module aims to provide grounding in the core competencies related to management and leadership in organisations, enabling you to apply theory to practice in management and leadership development. Alongside this, it will provide opportunities to develop personal skills through workshops in leadership and team building. This module is aligned to CIPD intermediate unit narratives.

Strategic Management (30 credits) – Compulsory

This module aims to present a broad and integrated view of strategic management in organisations and outline a range of critical perspectives on key concepts of strategy. It will introduce generic strategies at the corporate, business and functional level and provide a range of analytical models and concepts that can be applied in assessing the strategic capability of an organisation and the environment in which it operates.

Equality Diversity and Inclusion (30 Credits) - Optional

The aim of this module is to promote greater awareness and understanding of the importance of diversity issues from both a national and international perspective. This module also provides insight to the implications of diversity from a societal, organisational, and employee standpoint. A range of diversity debates, concepts and practices regarding equality, fairness and inclusion are also explored. This is used as a means for endorsing the significance of diversity management to careers and business sustainability and success. A variety of topics are covered including cross-cultural management, gender disparity, age perception, disability awareness, effective multicultural teamworking, and diversity legislation.

Research Project (30 credits) – Optional

This module is designed to develop students’ skills and knowledge relevant to planning and conducting a small-scale research project. Students will learn how to do research, including define research aim and objectives, conduct literature review, collect primary data, analyse and interpret data, and organise and present research proposal and final dissertation document. The module requires students to consolidate learning from other modules to plan and complete a small business and management related research project.

Work Internship (30 credits) – Optional

The primary aim of the work internship module is to provide students with the opportunity to undertake a period of work experience (minimum of 30 days) from which they will learn about, how business run in general, the organisation and the sector within which it operates as well as the key drivers of business success. The work internship will provide students with an opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of work and develop effective strategies to deal with work and organisational life. It will therefore facilitate students to develop and understanding of work, reflexivity, resilience, well-being and the link between theory and practice. Through reflection on experiential learning students will enhance their awareness of their own abilities, and attributes and undertake a journey of personal and professional development.

Facilitating Creativity in Business (30 Credits) - Optional

This module aims to explore ways of developing creativity and innovation at work, from an individual, team and organisational level. The focus will be on recognising and unleashing your latent creative potential, becoming more creative, facilitating teams to uncover more of their creative potential, and develop skills in building work environments which will release your creative energy and the energy of those whom you work with. This module will introduce the knowledge and skills needed to facilitate creativity in workplace. It draws upon the literature and the experiences of creative practitioners to examine the wide range of principles and practices which can be utilised in fostering a creative attitude at work.

Managing Individual and Organisational Change (30 Credits) - Optional

This module builds on personal effectiveness developed in prior study to provide a bridge between university and future careers and further develops the strategic role of the HR practitioner to enable you to implement specific organisational change related to the management of people.

The Service Encounter (30 Credits) - Optional

This module builds upon knowledge and skills gained on general business functions and their impact on work. It explores, in more depth and on a critical basis, the interrelationship of the workplace and individuals in the organisation of services. It looks at contemporary issues unique to the organisation of work within services, including management approaches to control, the interaction between customer and service provider at the point of delivery and the role of aesthetics in service provision.
