The International Management and Business Communication with Human Resource Management degree programme aims to offer students a coherent programme of study which will combine the development of knowledge and applied skills appropriate to this level of study and to the disciplines represented in the programme. The design and structure of the programme will offer students an inter-disciplinary programme of study with three subject areas (international management, business communication and HRM) fully represented and coherently linked.

The structure of the programme is designed to provide graduates with access to a range of professions and managerial careers within businesses engaged internationally, but in particular in the area of Human Resource Management.

Alongside the practical skills and knowledge acquired, students will also engage in independent research, providing a potential route to research training in cognate disciplines at a higher level.
