    Managing Human Resource encourages students to critically examine the relationship between corporate strategy and the core HRM activities such as recruitment, selection, appraisal, pay systems, training and development, and career and succession management. Students will also identify linkages between HRM functions and the external economic and social context and identify options for organising HRM functions and operations (for example internal/outsourced; local/international/global). In addition, students will use theoretical HRM models to analyse case studies.
