Learn the essentials of business leadership, critical thinking and analytical skills, underpinned with a thorough grounding in the key principles of business management.

By specialising in human resources, you will gain an understanding of how to use an organisation's best resource - its workforce - to achieve its strategic goals and get the very best out of each individual and team. You will also study key perspectives on human behaviour, how these behaviours are affected by times of uncertainty and change and what you can do to mitigate these challenges.

This course is ideal for graduates of non-business related courses who want to boost their employability by adding fundamental business and management skills to their CV - with a particular leaning towards human resource management.


With a strong focus on practical learning, you will make use of our purpose-built business simulation suite, allowing you to devise rapid response strategies to address a range of business-critical challenges and crisis situations. Immediate feedback from a facilitator will help evaluate and improve your analytical and decision making skills.

You will be taught through lectures, seminars and tutorials, using both individual and group work. Your tutors are academic experts, many of whom are Fellows of the Higher Education Academy, and industry practitioners, qualified to professional chartered status in their respective fields.

Our modules have been co-designed by our academic staff and an industry advisory panel to ensure the knowledge and capabilities you develop match senior level responsibilities in organisations across all sectors.

For hands-on experience, you can choose to undertake a consultancy project with one of our partner organisations. You will negotiate the project's finer details directly with the client and present your research to your client and academic supervisor.

A guest lecture programme throughout the year will provide networking opportunities with presenting organisations. Past speakers have included the CEO of the London Stock Exchange and the deputy agent of the Bank of England in Yorkshire and The Humber.
