The programme aims to equip the students with skills
- To develop a critical understanding of the complexities of the management of the employment relationship: In educating students who may become tomorrow’s Human Resource Managers, there is an obvious responsibility to keep up to date with contemporary developments in both practice and research and to develop a critical understanding of how Human Resource Management is related to the aims of businesses and impacts upon individual employees and the wider society.
- To introduce students to the approach and methods of applied social science: Management education is a discipline in which our understanding has to be based on research and evidence. In this, it differs from the instant management books and the pronouncement of management ‘gurus’.
- To be contemporary: Rapid changes in employment practices, markets, technology, and employment law mean that we cannot see the subject as a static body of knowledge but rather as a set of processes with differing manifestations and consequences
After the successful completion of the programme requirements, the students will be awarded with the certificates from the University of Stirling (UoS).
When you complete your studies you’ll be well qualified for specialist careers in both Human Resource Management and general management. Focusing on understanding employment in the widest sense, this course also enables graduates to take up roles in trade unions, employment related charities, government departments, non-governmental organisations and employment research bodies.
