B.Sc. in Human Resource Management

Distance Learning (3 years)

Successful leaders see personnel as assets meriting conscientious management in tune with the organisation’s needs, not as units that need to be controlled. The most competitive and well-run organisations work hard to recruit able individuals, and to ensure that their employees remain with them.
Over the last few years, companies and executives around the world have come to fully acknowledge the important role that managing human resources can play in the success of a business. Our BSc in Human Resource Management prepares students for careers as HR Managers.
By the end of the course, students gain the knowledge, skills, and expertise to become effective HR Manager and to direct human resources towards the strategic vision of their company. Students develop the strategic skills and thinking processes required of organisational change agents and are prepared to effectively manage day-to-day operational needs.
As is the case with all of our management programmes, our BSc in Human Resource Management places a strong emphasis on the basic theories of Marketing.
