People are a vital business asset, and getting the human side of a business right leads to a competitive advantage. Human resource management is the strategic approach to the employment, development, training, retention and well-being of people.

As a human resource manager, you'll be vital to your company. You'll formulate policies that address key modern workplace issues such as flexible working, remote working and equality and diversity. You'll lead on a strategy to recruit and retain the right workforce.

With this degree, you'll get a head start on employability as you'll be able to apply for Associate Membership of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) when you graduate, something that's often only available after postgraduate study.
