Overview

Human resource management (HRM) plays a vital part at every level of all organisations. An organisation will only succeed if its people are well managed, motivated, committed and engaged. Our Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) approved BA (Hons) Human Resource Management responds to current and future demands placed on the HR profession; exposing students to the rhetoric’s and realities of people management – past, present and future.

The course is developed in line with the 2018 CIPD Professional Standards and in consultation with CIPD members, business leaders, industry experts and partner organisations from around the world. Therefore, the very skills, behaviours and core knowledge demanded by the HR profession are those which you will develop during your studies, making you desirable to future employers.

Career opportunities

The BA (Hons) HRM is underpinned by the CIPD professional standards 2018, developed and designed in order to create ‘job ready’ ‘future-proof’ graduates.

Students will benefit from engagement with the established practitioner relationships South Wales Business School has developed over the past decade. These relationships have provided excellent opportunities for direct student engagement with practice via practitioner-led guest lectures, field visits, career development events, observational and practical research, student short-term and long-term placements and scenario-led assessment.

All students will undertake a minimum of 10 weeks in industry as a core part of their study where they will be embedded in the HR function during the second year of study with a range of fantastic employers in the region and maximising their employability.

Through ‘The Business Clinic’: personal development opportunities are offered to students across all three years through engagement with the South Wales Business Clinic where students can become trainee business analysts engaging with a range of businesses in the region to provide evidence-based responses to contemporary business challenges. The Clinic aims to create triadic business relationships that encourages students, academics and organisations to collaborate.

These opportunities further underpin the employability prospects of our students and provides them with a safe environment to develop key skills in decision making, leading projects and taking risks.
