Where people and strategy connect

Businesses and public organizations alike are increasingly coming to realize that the most valuable assets that they have are their human assets - people. Realizing that people make the difference between success and failure, the Human Resource Management emphasis area explores the operational and strategic components of managing people. Students pursuing the Human Resource Management emphasis learn how to evaluate the competitive landscape, assess stakeholder expectations, implement and sustain change initiatives, and align human resource practices with business strategy.

Topics studied in this emphasis area include talent management (e.g. recruiting, staffing, performance management), employment law (e.g. ADA, FMLA, EEO, compliance), labor relations (e.g. unions, contracts, arbitration, grievances), data and administration (e.g. new hire orientation, file audits, open enrollment, HRIS), professional development (e.g. training, succession planning), total rewards (e.g. compensation, variable pay, benefits, perks), and organizational behavior at the individual level (e.g. job satisfaction, stress, motivation, trust, learning, decision making, ability, personality, values), group level (e.g. leadership, power, negotiation, politics, teams), and organizational level (e.g. culture, structure).
