Human Resource Management
In the face of today's intense scrutiny and competition, both public and private organizations are placing greater emphasis on the management of their human resources. Managers are beginning to view Human Resource Management (HRM) as a strategic business function to be leveraged in pursuit of competitive advantage. This emphasis would be appropriate for students who are considering careers or graduate study in general HRM, compensation administration or labor relations.
The objectives of the HRM emphasis are
- To immerse students in this new strategic perspective
- To familiarize students with the language, concepts, theory and application of numerous, fundamental HRM activities
- To provide in-depth knowledge into at least one of these activities
Human resource management courses include
- Human Resource Management
- Labor Economics
- Advanced Organizational behavior
- Projects in Human Resource Management
- Human Resource Planning
- Compensation System design
- Performance Management
- Women in Organizations
