    Course Summary

    A BA in Business Management and the Human Resource from the University of Leeds will give you what you need to start a strong career in HRM (Human Resource Management).

    You’ll make a detailed study of business management techniques in general, as well as learning about HRM specific topics such as industrial relations, management decision-making and organisational behaviour.

    The University of Leeds is fully accredited by the CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development), and graduates of this course become eligible for associate membership in this organisation.

Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    Year 1:

    At first, you will study the core modules of this discipline. These will give you the theoretical and factual backgrounds you need to take full advantage of both the advanced level core modules and those optional specialty modules which you will eventually choose for yourself.

    Year 2:

    Later, you’ll explore the theory of organisational behaviour, industrial relations and labour economics, as well as the methods used to research HRM issues. You’ll have the option of exploring subjects like marketing, corporate social responsibility or business law.

    Year 3:

    In your final year, you’ll study leadership, strategic management and employment law. Optional modules might include contemporary management consulting, managing innovation and more. You will also craft a dissertation which will demonstrate your research and analysis skills.

    Learning & Teaching

    You will experience many forms of instruction at the Leeds University Business School. These include group tutorials and online learning, seminars and workshops and of course large lecture classes.

    You will benefit from access to LU’s Virtual Learning Environment, as well as individualised academic counselling from your Head of Year. This will be a lecturer in your field who will act as a personal tutor, giving you all the support you need to excel.

    Career Possiblities

    The University’s CIPD accreditation and the course’s semi-vocational nature combine to make graduates of this class highly sought-after in the HMR field. Recruiters will be interested in you, both for directly human resource management roles as well as those which simply demand a solid understanding of managing people in the business context.

    Participating in either the optional Year in Industry or Year in Enterprise programs will further enhance the marketability of your degree, or see you beginning your career with the founding of your own business.

    UL graduates of this and similar programs have gone on to become Human Resource Managers, Recruitment Consultants, and Business Development Managers, as well as many other roles.
