From debates around fair and transparent rewards for top management, through to the implementation of flexible work practices such as zero hours contracts, and how to manage best the talent within an organisation in order to enhance performance, are all challenges for the HR manager to consider and implement. Knowledge of employment law and employee relations, alongside an understanding of how to incentivise individuals and teams are vital for anyone wanting to build a career in human resource (HR) management whether in the UK or in an international context. Studying human resource management will equip you with the necessary skills to manage people within organisations. Why study at Manchester Metropolitan University? MMU has an established reputation of producing top quality managers. We are an Approved Centre for the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), which means that our HR courses are recognised and accredited by the professional body, which means you can gain dual awards and become members of the Institute. Our undergraduate HR programmes have also seen our graduates move into specialist and generalist management positions in large multinationals and SMEs around the UK and globally. Whether you choose to follow a threeyear degree route or our four-year integrated Masters or placement routes, as a Manchester Metropolitan University graduate, you will be able to benefit from our strong links with employers and industry. Our graduates have established successful careers in the HR professions, with alumni returning for further study on our popular postgraduate HRM courses, returning to the Business School as guest speakers or becoming advisors to our degree programmes to maintain their practical and professional relevance. We are growing our suite of HR related degrees and now offer an integrated masters with the innovative, four-year Masters in Human Resource Management (M HRM) with industrial experience. This means you can gain both work experience and advanced HRM skills in your fourth year of study, while at the same time gaining a postgraduate qualification in the same time period as you would study for an undergraduate one. Developing skills and knowledge for rewarding careers As with all degrees at MMU, our HR degrees encourage strategic awareness, providing insights into organisational planning, strategy, enterprise, and competitive positioning that is necessary for successful modern businesses. Alongside this, we develop your key personal skills, enhancing your ability to make the best of yourself, become an early career professional and mobilise others. mmu.ac.uk 3

4 Our HRM programmes Human Resource Management is all about people. People are vital to the success of any business and working in HR means you will have to manage issues related to people within an organisation, and the environment within which they work. Human Resource Management BA (Hons) This degree enables you to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding to become a successful human resources professional. Human resource management is a key business discipline, because attracting, training and retaining the right staff directly affects the performance of a business. Consequently, intelligent organisations and companies invest in their human resources departments and smaller companies will either employ someone with HR knowledge or outsource this element of their business to a HR consultancy. The role of a HR professional can be very diverse and you can choose to concentrate upon particular areas, or work across a number of HR spheres. The course will focus on core human resource management areas, such as HR strategy, effective organisational structure, staff recruitment and retention, training and development, employment law and equality and diversity, as well as how leaders develop and motivate their employees to achieve high standards of performance. The course will develop your personal, interpersonal, coaching, mentoring and group skills so that you can become an effective manager in any business sector. You will also study strategic issues such as the relations between employees and employee organisations, the structure of labour markets, and the wider impact an organisation can have on a variety of stakeholders, such as the local community in which it operates. Typical units of study may include the following, but can be subject to change. Year 1 You will study four, 30-credit units: Dynamic Business Environment This unit introduces the topics of markets and globalisation, technological development, fundamental macroeconomic elements and concepts in addition to social, cultural and ecological factors that an organisation should be considering when in operation.

Year 2 You will study three, 30-credit units and one optional unit: Learning, Coaching and Development You will gain a valuable understanding of learning styles, the training cycle, skills of training and coaching, leadership theories and teamwork. Other key themes you will explore are ethics in training and coaching, employability through personal development and e-learning.

The unit examines some of the most significant activities and processes associated with management, including the ways in which culture, ethics, gender, politics and power come to shape how management is seen and practiced.

Global Human Resource Management In this unit, you will analyse the key features of employment systems in selected countries, looking at the history of their development and comparing and contrasting their similarities and differences. Business Project Research This is a compulsory unit required for the CIPD award. It is an individual research project, one that enables you to apply the theory you have covered throughout the course in looking at practical HR related issues. You will be supported by an academic supervisor and will have workshops to develop your research skills, but the project itself provides an opportunity for you to develop your critical thinking and project management skills, both of which are crucial for enhancing your graduate employability. This is a dual award degree, so when you graduate, in addition to your degree you will also qualify for the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) Intermediate Level Diploma. mmu.ac.uk/13025 Lesley Halpin A mature student who graduated from the BA (Hons) Human Resource Management degree in 2014 I chose MMU for many reasons. Working as an Executive Assistant for two decades with aspirations of a new career in human resources, the course content looked dynamic, diverse and challenging. The programme has lived up to its expectations and the course has provided a diverse mix of learning and experiences, which will equip and prepare me to pursue my new HR career with confidence. Apart from the many new skills, knowledge and experiences, it has opened doors to new networking opportunities through the Manchester Industrial Relations Society (MIRS), students and tutors, as well as opening new networks from undertaking a Business Research Project within the Banking Sector. MMU s two-day Boot Camp for new business ventures was vital in helping me to prepare for setting up my own HR Business (VPA Services). mmu.ac.uk 5

10 Foundation Year Each year we accept students onto Foundation Year courses who have the potential ability to study at degree level but who don t have the qualifications to enter directly onto an Honours degree.

The content of the Foundation Year is tailored to prepare you for your chosen degree so that you start Year 1 of your linked Honours degree with confidence. A Foundation Year is offered for BA (Hons) Human Resource Management. UCAS Code: N602 If you choose the Foundation Year route, you will apply for a four-year course. Once you have passed your Foundation Year you will progress directly onto Year 1 of your linked degree and, if you are a full-time UK student, you will qualify for student financial support for the full duration of your course. Develop your academic and study skills You will study four Foundation Year units designed to develop your academic and study skills: Academic Skills for Higher Education (30 credits) Introduction to Business (30 credits) Business Intelligence (30 credits) Accounting, Finance and Economics for Business (30 credits) Entry requirements for a Foundation Year The typical minimum entry requirements for a degree that includes a Foundation Year are UCAS tariff points.

11 Placement Year A placement year can be an excellent opportunity to acquire high quality work experience and structured on the job training whilst earning a salary. A placement route is available to students on the BA (Hons) HRM degree, while shorter work experience is offered to those on the M HRM programme. There are also opportunities for you to undertake a placement based project where you research a business issue for your employer. This project can count towards one of your final year units and reduces your workload in your final year. The placement must be a minimum of 36 weeks but it will usually last for 12 months and takes place after your second year of study. We have an established award-winning placement team, who advertise vacancies and can help you find a placement. The team has over 25 years experience of matching students to employers. They advertise over 1,000 vacancies each year, organise an annual placement fair where you meet employers who are actively recruiting placement students, deliver CV workshops, provide one-to-one advice, and will conduct a mock interview with you so you can practice your interview technique. The placement jobs market is competitive and it is your responsibility to be pro-active and apply for vacancies. We recommend that you start researching companies and opportunities during your first year and apply for positions at the start of your second year. Finding the right opportunity and the right position is important because if you are a good match to your placement, your employer could offer you a full-time position when you have graduated. The knowledge and experience that I have gained from my placement has been invaluable. What I knew about HR before I started my placement seems so little to what I know now. Taking a placement has given me an advantage when applying in the future for jobs as I ve now got some HR experience.

12 Wealth of experience, depth of expertise Meet the teaching staff who teach on the Human Resource Management programmes: I am a Senior Lecturer in organisational behaviour, leading a variety of courses in HRM and HRD related areas and successfully supervising at doctoral level. I led the first BA (Hons) HRM cohort and am proud to have been closely involved with the programme ever since as a teacher and final year tutor.

Dr Andrew Rowe Senior Lecturer in Organisational Behaviour I graduated from MMU Business School in 1991 after completing a BSc (Hons) in Business. Later I went on to study a Masters in HRM at the University of Salford and became an Associate member of the CIPD. Whilst working in a range of mid-management roles in the retail sector I became interested in the way in which managers learn and develop, more recently I have been able to combine this interest with studying for a PhD in management learning. My teaching interests are in the field of human resource development, I lead on two units that equip students with a range of skills desired in the workplace, including that of coaching and mentoring, team working and personal development planning. Jill Murray Associate member of the CIPD 12 Human Resource Management

13 After completing my Masters in Human Resource Management at MMU in 2004, I had the skills and confidence to enjoy a varied operational career in HRM, including work in the construction, hospitality and retail sectors. Throughout my operational career, I was able to remain part of the MMU community by working as an Associate Lecturer on the HRM programmes, something that prompted my career change to fulltime academia in I now teach mainly on the MSc programmes, which includes the final year of the M HRM programme. I am a Chartered Fellow of the CIPD and am very active in my local branch. I maintain excellent links with employers from my own time of working in the industry.

Studying abroad An exchange route is also available to BA (Hons) HRM students. Participating in an exchange programme is a great way to experience another culture, country and education system. On many courses we offer high quality programmes with institutions in many parts of the world, including the USA, Canada, Australia and across Europe. Developing skills It isn t just about study.
