BA (Hons) Management & Organisation (Human Resource Management)
UCAS code: N600
How do organisations function? How do their actions affect practical life in contemporary societies? How do businesses get the most from their employees?
These are the central questions of Lancaster's BA in Management and Organisation (Human Resource Management) - a wide-ranging programme on which you'll explore not only management theory, but also psychology, sociology history and philosophy. The Human Resource Management element means you will focus particularly on understanding people - the way they work and how their behaviour can be influenced through management practices.
You will also have the opportunity to extend the degree to four years by taking up an industrial work placement at a major organisation, giving you valuable experience and helping you decide on your career direction.
