This conversion course is delivered by the AACSB-accredited Business School, an accreditation attained by fewer than 5% of business schools worldwide. It recognises our focus on excellence in all areas.

The course has a global focus with specialist units exploring issues including managing people across different cultures, organisational and employment related issues and the development of people as a resource. These are complemented by core management units which concentrate on developing your leadership skills, the management of people, marketing & strategy, as well as contemporary issues in the business world.

During this course you’ll acquire the skills and acumen needed to plan and manage HR strategies within the public and private sectors. You’ll develop an ideal blend of specialist human resource and generalist management expertise in order to stand out in the highly competitive HR career market.

An optional 30-week work placement as part of the course provides an excellent opportunity to enhance your employability before you graduate.

We work closely with employers and professional bodies to ensure you develop the skills you need to succeed in the workplace. Our expert teaching teams will support your studies and, as this is a conversion course, can provide guidance about changing the direction of your career.

You will develop greater self-awareness through reflexivity and working with teams, combined with a theoretical understanding including emotional intelligence, resilience and well-being.
