MBA Business Administration (Human Resource Management)


Course Description

This MBA has been designed for those ready to make the leap into management roles from an existing job and those who are aspiring to become managers. The course has a particular focus on the human resource elements of business and will help you to develop the skills needed to contribute to the management and development of staff to further the organisation’s goals.

Importantly, we take a strategic perspective on business and management and help you to develop the skills to contribute to major decisions made by organisations about their future.

Applicants are welcomed from any discipline and from a wide range of job roles. Many entrants to an MBA have a science or technology qualification and so it is not necessary that you have studied business or management before.

What will I study?

This MBA is designed to allow you to develop an understanding of the key aspects of business and management. You will study topics relating to accounting and finance, human resource management, marketing and strategy. By the end of these modules you will have an understanding of these critical aspects of business. Those who major in HRM will also study critical perspectives on managing human resources.

Teaching is set within an international context with examples and illustrations being drawn from the global economy. The course will also take a strategic focus, concentrating on the major decisions that organisations have to make to determine their overall direction. Finally, you will be exposed to a range of contemporary issues that are of interest to all managers. These will include such things as globalisation, ethics and social responsibility.

How will I study?

As well as preparing for and attending lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshops, you will spend time reading and completing coursework, including written assignments, portfolios and presentations. Learning from your colleagues is an important part of the course and many exercises will require you to work in teams.

How will I be assessed?

Throughout the programme, there is a combination of different forms of assessment to test intellectual development, vocational capability, and critical thinking. Coursework often involves both individual and group-based working and utilises case studies and problem solving exercises. Examinations take a variety of forms, with both seen and unseen questions.

Who will be teaching me?

All of our staff are passionate about student learning and development. The MBA is delivered by specialists in human resource management and experts in accountancy, marketing, e-commerce, and small and medium sized enterprises. The team includes active researchers who publish in academic journals, as well as academically and professionally qualified staff. All team members are people with an energy and enthusiasm for their subject area.

What are my career prospects?

An MBA helps to equip you for a range of career opportunities in both general management and specialist functions. Typical MBA careers include accountancy, administration, banking, education, finance, human resource management, marketing, public and private sector management, retailing and enterprise.
