Bachelor of Business (Human Resource Management)
The heart of any business is its people. With this professionally accredited three-year degree, you'll develop skills in managing people and learn how to help businesses and organisations operate more effectively.
In your first year you'll gain an introduction to a range of business disciplines such as accounting, economics, finance and marketing. You'll also complete the first subject of your major in human resource management, focusing on the foundations of good management.
Your eight-subject human resources management major provides you with the knowledge you need to manage and motivate people. You'll learn about organisational behaviour, employment relations, human resource information systems and how to develop and reward talent.
This course also offers you the opportunity to take a second major to expand your career options. You can choose from areas including sport management, event management, or tourism and hospitality.
To build practical experience, you'll undertake a team project where you'll create a plan to solve a social, environmental or business problem. You'll also have the opportunity to participate in an international study tour to see how HR management works in a global context.
