Human Resource Management

Managing Human Capital involves strategically allocating the most valuable resources—people—to the right areas of a firm. The basics of managing human capital are covered in any basic management course, but this course will introduce more advanced topics in the field. The student will learn that identifying the best employees begins with identifying the firm's needs and carrying out a proper recruitment and selection process. Training, development, and performance evaluations can shape the selected into an ideal firm resource, while adequate and incentivizing compensation can keep those resources with the firm. This course will cover all these topics and more. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Business Administration 301)
