About Human Resource Management at Westminster Business School, London, University of Westminster

Course summary

People are one of the most expensive resources of an organisation in the contemporary dynamic, global knowledge economy, but they are also of great importance. As organisations change, develop and operate internationally, knowledge of people management processes is essential at both operational and strategic levels.

Managing people to develop their potential and to make effective use of their capability has always been an exciting but challenging business function. On this degree, you will learn about the full range of approaches to the challenges of people management and development, and gain the important skills necessary to work in an HR role.

This degree is valuable for those wanting to work as a human resource professional and also for anyone planning a career in management or consultancy. It will also give you the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.

Westminster Business School is one of the leading providers of Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) - accredited human resources management programmes in the UK. This degree offers you the opportunity to develop your expertise in HRM, Leadership and Development. Upon registering for HRM BA you will be invited to become a student member of the CIPD. On completion of your degree, should you have joined the CIPD, you will become an associate member of the CIPD with their recognised intermediate level award.

The course will equip you with the specialised skills and knowledge, as recognised by the CIPD, to pursue a career in Human Resource Management or to continue to postgraduate study. You will also develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities you require to respond proactively and creatively to contemporary business issues and the challenges of the global business environment.

The course focuses on active student learning, through seminars, workshops, problem-based and blended learning, designed to engage your interest and to promote your learning.
