Regardless of sector, the Human Resources professional who can motivate employees, whilst protecting the organisation from non-compliance, is highly sought after.

Our BSc Business with Human Resource Management degree is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), the professional body for HR and people development. This shows that the course reflects the CIPD’s national framework; it is also highly practical and reflective of HR best practices and the current needs of employers. You will study at our University of Salford campus close to Manchester city centre.

Be industry ready

This degree sets Human Resource Management (HRM) within the wider business context; right from year one, you will start to develop an understanding of how organisations run while covering the key aspects of HRM such as employee engagement, awareness of organisational culture, effective communication and employment law. You will also build your personal portfolio of professional evidence which will enhance your CV and help you in job applications and interviews.

There is an emphasis on ethical and sustainable business practices as well as the technical tools you need so you develop as a rounded HR professional. We have worked with industry partners to make sure the programme is highly practical, career-focused and industry-informed to prepare you for a successful management career. We are proud to work with our student panel to ensure our teaching is relevant, inclusive and respectful for all.

The lecturers who deliver this programme have a wealth of academic and professional expertise. Throughout the course, you’ll benefit from their support, experience and industry connections to help you prepare for your future career.

During your degree, you will have the option to participate in the Study Abroad programme. The programme allows you the chance to spend your second year studying on an international exchange with one of our global partner institutions in Europe, the US or the rest of the world.

You will:

  • Develop the core HR skills you need to manage people effectively
  • Study in a supportive environment where you are a name, not a number
  • Build your own personal portfolio to enhance your CV and demonstrate your knowledge and skills to future employers
  • Study on a programme accredited by CIPD, the leading association for human resource management professionals (subject to approval)

This course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) so you know it is reflective of HR best practices.

Career focussed, hands-on learning

This course will begin by developing your knowledge and understanding of key business management concepts along with the fundamental principles of HRM.

By working on live projects and business simulations, you will develop your core skills such as problem-solving, leadership, communication and data analysis. In this way, you will learn to find creative, sustainable and ethical solutions to HR problems. Throughout your time with us, you will build your own portfolio of professional evidence which you will be able to use to help you get a rewarding job when you graduate.
