Our flexible Management degrees share a common first year before allowing you to focus on your chosen specialism to enhance your career prospects. With over 90 course units to choose from, you really can shape your own degree.
BSc (Hons) Management (Human Resources) with Industrial/Professional Experience concentrates on the broad area of human resource management plus employment policy and practice, industrial relations, organisational psychology and organisational analysis, with choices to focus on both the UK and international level. It includes a work placement in your penultimate year and is designed to encourage you to gain a critical awareness of how people are managed in organisations.
To graduate with BSc (Hons) Management (Human Resources), you need to have studied at least 40 credits of second-year options (one third of your studies) and at least 60 credits of final-year options (half of your studies) from the Human Resources subject area.
Since the Management and Management (Specialism) degrees are identical in the first year, transfer between them is straightforward, so you should apply for only one of them.

What our students say
'I particularly enjoyed Operations Management as our lecturer does not teach from books but from his own experience, which makes the course very interactive and practical. It was structured around a group project which has given me a good example of teamwork to talk about in interviews, as we came up with our own business and faced challenges as a group.' - Daria Savilova from Russia, final year Management student
'The management course offered allowed me to choose some finance and accounting modules, which I knew I would be good at, as well as some marketing and human resource modules, which I was interested in. It was this variety that made me choose my course.' - Clare Douglas, final year Management student

Personal development plans
PDPs are aimed at helping you develop awareness of generic transferable and subject-specific skills, improve independent learning and provide a record of your academic learning and achievement.
All new Alliance Manchester Business School students are allocated an academic advisor who you will meet in regular sessions as part of a first-year course unit. Where possible, you will keep the same academic advisor throughout your time here. Your advisor will support you throughout your studies on matters of an academic nature, from providing feedback on a practice essay in preparation for your `formal' assessment at the end of each semester to discussing your PDP or writing you a reference. We also have a dedicated undergraduate assessment and student support centre within the School, who will be your first point of contact for any ill health or other personal problems which are affecting your work.
We operate a peer mentoring scheme which aims to provide you with a second or final year 'mentor' to provide practical assistance with orientation and induction as well as advice and information on any aspect of student life.
