The Human Resource Management (HRM) Minor is designed to expose students to the key functional areas of human resource management. The minor prepares students to effectively manage a company’s human resources in different positions, including HR professionals who are tasked with attracting, developing, retaining, and managing an organization’s employees; line managers who have day-to-day responsibilities to implement HR policies in the workgroup; entrepreneurs who need fundamental knowledge of HRM to successfully meet a myriad of HR-related challenges in their new firms; and members of not-for-profit organizations who should recruit and manage employees, often with no specialist HR staff.
