The programme is designed to develop proactive graduates who will be equipped to gain appropriate and rewarding employment and make an immediate and on-going contribution within the workplace. As such they will be proficient in a team environment, have acquired skills that will enable them to reflect upon a problem or
situation and identify appropriate strategies, and have the confidence and capability to allow them to develop as life-long learners. The programme combines the
multidisciplinary nature of business studies provision alongside the opportunity to learn about and experiment with a range of well established and modern approaches
to the challenges of people management and development. Additionally, there is a focus on the development of students’ intellectual and practical skills that will support them both as learners and as future managers.

Distinctive Features:

 In place of traditional large group lectures, student-centric workshop based learning activities are central to the delivery of the programme.
 Emphasis on the personal development of students within a supportive environment that enables students to master challenges and achieve goals
 Vocational focus to the programme underpinned with authentic assessment tasks and project based learning.
 Projects undertaken for external organisations and businesses

The Programme aims to:

 combine a coherent, broad based programme of study of business organisations and their management within the context of a changing external environment with the development of human resource management skills. Students will develop their HRM skills through modules that are designed to facilitate the learning of subjects relevant to current human resource practice. Following an introduction to management and organisational behaviour students have the opportunity to focus in areas such as employee development, leadership, and human resource strategy. Students are encouraged to evaluate current HRM concepts with a critical eye
 develop self aware, reflective students who take responsibility for their own learning and demonstrate a responsibility to fellow learners;
 develop a range of intellectual and practical skills that will enable graduates to add-value within the work place;
 provide assessment and project based tasks that allows students to apply knowledge and skills appropriately within an authentic context;
 provide the educational foundation that is relevant to further study and lifelong learning;
 create a learning environment where professional standards are expected, but at the same time recognises that learning is challenging and appropriate support is provided both by staff and fellow learners.
