This course is an introduction and a general outline of the topic. It aims to provide students with an overview of Human Resource Management (HRM) and its challenges in an international context. Students who wish to deepen their knowledge and specialize in the field of HRM will have to complete additional courses or to request additional readings.
We will adopt several approaches but particularly that of a general manager and focus primarily on how to think strategically about the main aspects of managing the organization’s human assets in businesses. In this context, it is more and more each manager’s responsibility to make decisions regarding issues such as recruitment, training or appraisal.
