The management of human capital is critical to the success of an organisation. The Human Resource Management degree prepares students to assume positions as human resource personnel. The degree develops a student’s competencies in forecasting human resource needs as well as the recruitment, selection, training, and development of employees.
Human resource managers are also involved in designing performance appraisal systems, developing compensation and benefit programs, monitoring employee health and safety, and establishing cooperative working relationships with organised labor, all of which are covered in the coursework.
The human resource management curriculum also covers how to analyse current labor force trends, treating employees fairly, encouraging diversity, and understanding the foundations of labour law.
