32 Human Resource Management Module Code BE470 New or revised Revised NQF Level 7 Credit Value 10 Date of Introduction Duration (weeks) 8 Pre-requisites (modules which must be taken before this module) Co-requisites (modules which must be taken in the same year) Module Description Over recent decades, social and political shifts have culminated in the emergence of Human Resource Management (HRM) as an organizational practice distinct from more traditional personnel approaches to managing people at work.
