Course description

Intended to introduce students to the field of human resource management (HRM). Students learn theories and applications involved in effectively managing people in organizations. In addition, this course covers current topics in HRM that have resulted from environmental and organizational challenges (e.g., technology, globalization, legislation, restructuring, work/life balance, changing labor markets). Emphasis is placed on developing relevant problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, as the basic concepts of HRM and the skills developed in this course are applicable to all types of organizations and jobs in which students will eventually work.

This course is open to all registrants, including undergraduates and Summer College students.
