The competitive advantage derived from the more effective use of human resource management policies, practices and procedures is the focus of the Human Resources Management minor. The minor is relevant to a variety of students who want to learn to better manage a company’s human resources in many positions after graduation, including the following: line managers who need to implement human resources policies as they hire and manage the performance of their employees; entrepreneurs who need a fundamental knowledge of human resources management to run their companies more effectively; and members of not-for-profit organizations who need to understand the basics because they rarely are able to hire human resources staff. The minor covers a range of topic areas taught from both theoretical and applied perspectives. Students are exposed to a wide array of human resources functional areas, including staffing, performance management, training, compensation, human resource information systems and employer-employee rights and responsibilities.
