We offer three undergraduate degree programmes within the Department of Work, Employment and Organisation
Human Resource Management is concerned with acquisitions and utilisation of the ‘human resource’ or people as employees and the nature of the employment relationship.
This covers key processes such as recruitment and selection, rewarding and managing performance, and influencing employee behaviour, including securing cooperation and commitment, but also recognising and managing conflict at work.
Our graduates may enter both the private and public sectors. Some follow careers in the specialist area of HRM, others go on to find general graduate-entry management posts where people management knowledge and skills are increasingly important.
Recent graduates have gained jobs in a range of leading and public sector organisations, including Scottish Power, Accenture, Marks & Spencer, health trusts and local authorities.
Management can be described as the achievement of results with, and through, others. Studying management will help you understand the theory underpinning this subject area and will help you to develop the skills required to translate the theory into practice as a practicing manager in the public, private or third sectors.
Whether the business challenge is developing profitable new products or improving the health of our nation, the answer often comes down to management. The breadth of opportunities for which you will be qualified for is a real benefit of this course and you will be able to make a positive contribution in a range of settings.
You are as likely to find yourself working in a small, privately owned company as you are to work in a large multinational, the public sector or perhaps even in your own business.
Hospitality & Tourism Management opens doors to one of the largest and fast-growing sectors of the economy.
In response to our strong links to a wide range of employers , studying Hospitality & Tourism Management at Strathclyde gives you the chance to learn about this subject with a strong business-focus.
This degree will prepare you for leadership roles in this dynamic sector which generates over £5 billion to the Scottish economy and creates one in 10 jobs. You will have the skills to manage operations and business across a range of industries including hospitality, tourism and events.
On graduating, you may be able to apply for membership of professional bodies such as the Institute of Hospitality, the Institute of Travel & Tourism, Tourism Society or the Royal Geographical Society
