About the Course
The course is taught from the perspective of the general manager, rather than an HRM specialist. It focuses on the application and effects of HRM, and how the HR System can increase the effectiveness of the firm. Topics focusing on the nature of managerial work, recruiting, selection, performance measurement and feedback, compensation, employee benefits, and others are designed to help students understand how their own careers will be affected by each of these systems, and the roles they must play as managers responsible for executing each of these systems.
Course Goals/Learning Objectives

The object of this course is to introduce you to modern Human Resource Management (HRM) policies and practices. As such, we are interested in how HRM should be used to create and implement competitive advantages in various types of organizations, and how and to what degree Human Resources will increase the effectiveness of those firms. Based on the best available theory, empirical research, and organizational practice we will work to develop a sound understanding of the capabilities (and limits) of leading edge Human Resource Management.
