Educating ethical leaders and managers
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.
