School of Human Resource Management
Human Resource Management (HRM) is an inter-disciplinary and professional program that focuses on all aspects related to the management of people in organizations. The program’s inter-disciplinary approach is reflected in its connections with a number of other academic disciplines including business, management, economics, sociology, psychology, and legal studies, among others. HRM is a diverse and eclectic field dealing with a wide variety of functional areas. The courses offered by the School of Human Resource Management address the many domains of the field of HRM, such as: employment law, recruitment, selection, & performance appraisal, occupational health & safety, compensation, and training & development, among others. In a growing, competitive economy, organizations are increasingly pressed to manage their human resources in ways that enhance their viability, therefore the human resources management curriculum also includes courses of wider managerial interest including research methods, human resource planning, industrial relations, leadership and management skills, negotiations for human resource management, employment equity and diversity, organizational development, international and cross-cultural human resource management, and strategic human resource management, among others. Thus, the program assists in the development of managerial knowledge and skills that are essential to successful employment in the private and public sector.
