ABE Business Management & Human Resource Management

ABE Business Management & Human Resource Management

The effective management of an organisation’s human resources is now recognised as a critical component in the success of public and private enterprises. In practice, HR is responsible for employee experience during the entire employment lifecycle.

This recognition has led to a demand for trained and qualified HR professionals and the development of a career structure rising to the highest levels of the organisation.

The Human Resource Management programme introduces you to the academic disciplines that underlie the effective management of the human resource and proceeds to explore the theory, practice and strategy of human resource management.

To aid you in your studying of the Business Management and Human Resource programme, ABE has developed a series of Study Guides. These guides cover all the learning outcomes of the respective syllabuses and are essential reading for all Business Management and Human Resource students. .
