MGT 4385 - Advanced Topics in Human Resource Management

Credits: 3 hrs
This course is designed as a seminar to facilitate a greater understanding and application of advanced human resource management concepts. The goals of this seminar are to expose students to the research literature surrounding current events, special topics, and more advance issues in human resource management (HRM) to enhance the student’s current broad knowledge base. Students will be asked to apply their knowledge in an array of HRM areas to solve problems mimicking the current challenges faced by Human Resource (HR) managers in a quickly evolving global arena. This seminar will review special topics and currents events in HRM, along with traditional areas of HRM: strategic HRM, legal issues in HRM, job analysis and design, workforce planning, recruiting, selection, placement, training, employee development, managing diversity, performance management, retention, employee benefits, compensation, and international HRM.   This course will review many of the topic areas that are covered on the SHRM Assurance of Learning Assessment (which has replaced the PHR exam for graduating HR students).
