The Department of Management, Entrepreneurship and Strategic Human Resources offers the minor in Strategic Human Resources Management (SHRM).
The SHRM minor prepares students to contribute to organizational effectiveness through effective human resource management. Effective human resource management creates an environment in which people can do their best work, contributing to achievement of an organization's vision, mission, and strategic objectives while also respecting the dignity of employees as human beings.
This minor is available to any undergraduate student. It is designed to give business and non-business majors skills that will enhance their attractiveness to employers upon graduation. Since all managers are people managers, the Strategic HRM minor benefits all future managers. It also provides an opportunity to pursue a business specialty in HR. Strategic HRM concerns the total activity of an organization, business, or firm as these activities relate to the work force. Such activities include employment law, recruiting and selection, training and development, performance management, compensation and benefits, workplace diversity, and labor relations.
Outside of the classroom, students may expand their knowledge by participating in a part-time or full-time internship in human resources. Credit and non-credit opportunities are available.
