Turn your people skills into a rewarding career

If you’re keen to specialise in human resource management, and want to learn the business skills and knowledge to enhance your professional practice, then the Bachelor of Business (Human Resource Management) is a great option. The course offers five specialist human resource management practice-focused units, two breadth subjects (workplace law and organisational behaviour) and an industry project.

You’ll begin curating evidence in the form of an e-portfolio in the foundation unit, Managing Human Capital, and will continue this process throughout your degree. Upon graduation, this body of work will form an impressive tool to help you launch the first stage of your career in HRM.

  • critically evaluate a range of core business skills to find solutions to future work challenges in the legal, economic and global business environments
  • analyse and apply a range of contemporary approaches to business innovation and organisational change
  • develop experience of professional management in work and organisations, demonstrating creativity and initiative in new situations
  • apply a range of ethical, socially responsible and sustainable solutions in a changing business environment
  • reflect upon levels of personal autonomy and accountability associated with the decision-making process
  • locate and evaluate a range of research frameworks and skills within human resource management
  • develop and apply the competencies and behaviours consistent with professional certification in human resource management.

Work Integrated Learning

The Bachelor of Business (Human Resource Management) is actively connected to the human resource management industry and you’ll engage in active and experiential learning using case studies, real-world projects, problem-solving exercises and interaction with guest speakers.

The course includes both workshop-based and project-based units which simulate actual HRM industry experiences. You’ll have the opportunity to undertake an internship or work closely with your own employer to explore a substantial industry-related project. Previous Human Resource Management students have undertaken internships across a range of sectors, with organisations such as Adecco Australia, CSIRO, PriceWaterhouseCoopers Canberra, Soldier On, Cushman & Wakefield, UniLodge and the University of Canberra College.
