Overview

Businesses can’t run without people, which means they can’t run without good people management. The field of human resources is a far cry from its origins as personnel management, and to succeed in a rapidly changing business world, it is essential for managers to have a good grasp of how the people within them flourish or fail.

As well as examining the key HR and management topics, you will also have the opportunity to modify the course to your own preferences. Essex Online offers optional modules in:

  • the key concepts that underlie marketing and how to develop a strategy
  • financial accounting and financial decision-making in the short and long term
  • micro- and macro-economics and their relevance to managerial decision-making

The final module you will study is the Business with Human Resources programme at the University of Essex Online , an in-depth study into your choice of any managerial, human resource or miscellaneous business issue. 

You will conduct independent research into the topic and your report shall make recommendations on how to manage the issue based on the data and conclusions you draw from it.

Your future

Companies seek out candidates with the most advanced skills to fill senior positions, and a postgraduate qualification is an excellent way to showcase that you possess those abilities. 

This course is designed for those seeking employment in a high-level human resource management role, however roles within business management, banking, insurance, accountancy, marketing, sales, retail and finance would also greatly benefit from the knowledge gained through this course.
