BA (Hons) Business Studies is our longest running course. By combining knowledge of psychology, social psychology and sociology, this course will enable you to operate as a human resource management practitioner.
Units of this course are closely linked to Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) standards, providing you with a broad grounding in the core generalist areas.
You will develop a conceptual understanding of the nature and character of modern human resource management. Specifically, the units develop a critical understanding of the main issues and themes in employment relations, learning and development, and people resourcing, exploring the relationship of these aspects to the wider HRM function, and their contribution to the organisation as a whole.
320-340 tariff points, with 200-220 from two A-levels (e.g. B,B or A,B) or equivalent, with remaining 120 points from other A/AS levels, equivalent qualifications or Key Skills. BTEC Extended Diploma: DDM
You will ´hit the ground running´ from year one onwards, when you will begin to develop the versatility and personal qualities needed to manage a range of business activities in a global context, as well as an awareness of the wider impact of business decisions on organisational stakeholders and society.
