BBA in Human Resource Management
Management philosophy has changed from one of asset management to one of resource management. The major in Human Resource Management will assist business students in becoming more effective in their performance by helping them recognize the potential of individuals in the workplace, and structure a positive, supportive, and constructive work environment, allowing the organization to fulfill long-term goals and objectives.
- The purpose of the HRM major is to develop pertinent skills to understand and deal effectively with:
- The functional aspects of personnel administration such as compensation, recruitment, personnel training and development, career planning, labor relations, and collective bargaining;
- The behavior and interactions of individuals, groups, and organizations;
- The development of leadership toward organizational effectiveness;
- The management of change and conflict in organizational and labor contacts as a catalyst to improve operational effectiveness; and
- The legislative realities of federal and state governments including HSPA and its regulations governing the work place.
