Overview

Human Resource Management is a vital part of every business, and impacts everyone from junior members of staff to CEOs. With a CIPD accredited HR degree from the University of Stirling, you’ll gain far-reaching expertise in organisational success and unlock a wealth of professional opportunities.

The course will prepare you to make an impact on key areas of business such as recruitment methods, staff development, performance management and career progression. You’ll also be equipped to enhance an organisation’s adaptability by broadening the skills of its workforce and understanding its broader social and economic environments.

Over 400 million people around the world speak Spanish – which is why learning the language for yourself makes you a powerful asset to employers in an age of global opportunities.

This course offers Spanish for all – from complete beginners to advanced speakers – and equips you to read, write and speak the language to an advanced level appropriate for the demands of today’s job market. You will also have the chance to acquire a critical awareness of the societies and cultures of Spain and Latin America, as well as transferrable skills that can be applied in a number of professional and academic settings.
