Human Resource Management & Business

Overview

Study an accredited and comprehensive business degree with the added advantage of gaining specialist knowledge of human resource management (HRM). Our innovative, academically rigorous and vocationally relevant approach to business will help you to stand out from the crowd and our links with employers will enrich your experience through guest lectures and placement opportunities. If you choose the sandwich option, you will gain valuable industry experience that will make you an attractive prospect to potential employers.
You are strongly encouraged to take a paid work placement in the third year of your course to develop and enhance your transferable employability skills. Previous students on this course have secured placements with top companies including BP, Panasonic, GE Capital and Bentley Motors. We have a dedicated employability and placements office to support you and provide you with access to a wide range of vacancies from local, national and international employers. Pre-placement guidance and seminars are available on topics such as CV and letter writing, how to succeed at interview, assessment centres and psychometric tests.

Our Study Abroad programme is a popular option for many students and you can visit partner institutions in countries such as the USA, Australia, France and Norway. Our students often enter competitions such as the IBM Universities Business Challenge, the UK's premier business simulation in which we compete against teams from other universities. You may also apply for student membership of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD). You will be taught at the Rose Bowl, our award winning home in the heart of the Leeds business district.

At Leeds Business School we're dedicated to supporting your professional development - that's why we offer a guest lecture programme.
