The Department of Human Resource Management (HRM) knows that a company’s people are its most important asset and strategic advantage—and fostering synergies between the human side and the business side of every enterprise is essential.
More and more organizations are hiring well-trained professionals to recruit, develop, manage, and retain their most valuable asset: people. The HRM department prepares students with the knowledge and skills needed for the strategic and interpersonal management of company employees.
We 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. The program offers theoretical perspectives and practical skills in traditional areas of HR—such as recruitment and succession planning, training and talent development, compensation and benefits, employee relations, and public policy/compliance—emphasizing both local and global considerations. Students take courses designed to enhance their interpersonal leadership skills, including communication, negotiation, conflict management, and team building.

Dr. Andersson received her Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior/Social Issues in Management from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her research, published in outlets such as Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Human Relations, and Organization, focuses on the dark side of business organizations. In particular, she’s been examining some social maladies that are arguably associated with late capitalism and neoliberalism (cynicism, incivility, corruption, detrimental philanthrocapitalism) as well as the role of social activism in countering capitalist barriers to sustainability.
Dr. Andersson teaches courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels in the area of Business, Society and Ethics and Corporate Sustainability, and has been lauded for her curricular innovation and ability to inspire critical thinking in her students. She was the recipient of the 2006 Andrisani-Frank Undergraduate Teaching Award and the 2005 Musser Excellence in Leadership Award for Teaching.
Active on campus, in her profession, and in the community, Dr. Andersson’s service engagements revolve around trying to stir things up, attempting to “ecologize” and “humanize” the business world and business education. She is currently on the Board of Directors at the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia.
