Human Resources Management
This course serves as an introduction to human resources management (HRM) with distinctions between private and public/non-profit sector organizations. Students will examine the full spectrum of HRM principles and applications from the perspective of the business leader making strategic decisions and/or the internal client of human resource services within their respective organization. For students who are HR practitioners, this approach will develop skills as a business partner with the clients you serve. The course will also develop critical skills thinking so students can ensure the human capital strategy is aligned with business/organizational objectives.
Students will gain an appreciation and understanding of key HRM concepts, specifically, ensuring effective, consistent HR management in any type of organization; developing a working knowledge of HR processes and practices; considering alternative approaches to existing HR processes; and enhancing analytical skills to ensure strategic alignment. Students will be expected to be engaged in group discussion and experiential learning through case studies, projects and guest speakers.
