Department of Human Resource Management
Human Resource Management
The Human Resource Management Department recognizes that a company’s people are its ultimate product and strategic advantage. Consequently, we acknowledge the necessity of creating synergies between the human and business side of the enterprise. Our goal is to develop ethical leaders and managers who understand that commitment to employee well-being and talent development enhances an organization’s productivity, reputation, and sustainable profits. Courses offer theoretical perspectives and practical skills in traditional areas of HR (recruitment/selection & succession planning, training & talent development, compensation & benefits, and employee relations & public policy/compliance) emphasizing both local and global considerations. Students also take courses designed to enhance their interpersonal leadership skills including communication, negotiation, conflict management, and team building.
The Fox Certificate in Leadership is open to all majors and trains students to be outstanding managers and leaders.
At the Graduate Level, we offer a Certificate in HRM, as well as Masters of Science (MS), and Masters of Business Administration (MBA) degrees. These programs, offering conveniently scheduled evening courses, train HR professionals for advancement, and prepare others for entry into an HR career.
At the Ph.D. level, students are trained to become organizational researchers and university professors.
Human Resource Management students are expected to actively participate in The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). Guest speakers, networking events, internships, leadership opportunities, and career development activities are just a few benefits of joining. This organization is open to all FSBM majors as well as HRM majors.
