Seminar in Human Resource (HR) Management
- 3 credits
- Prerequisite: PhD candidacy or instructor's permission
This seminar addresses the research domains associated with both Strategic Human Resource Management (SHRM) and Functional Human Resource Management (FHRM). SHRM is concerned with the emerging literature on aligning business and HR strategy, while FHRM is more about the traditional functions of HR (staffing, reward, and development systems). Special attention will be paid to the similarities and distinctions between SHRM and FHRM and the field of Organizational Behavior. The focus will be on reviewing (describing and critiquing) representative research studies as published in top academic journals and generating new research ideas in the form of original research proposals.
