MAN 462 Human Resources Management

In this course, an academic understanding of human resource management (HRM) is aimed to be given to students who have little or no prior knowledge of the area. The development of HRM as an academic field is critically explored in its historical context, emphasizing the differences between personnel management and more contemporary approaches such as HRM. Various functions and dimensions of HRM are defined and discussed, by using case studies and real examples both from Turkey and other countries. Current issues around HRM are also explored. The course eventually aims to simulate answers to the following questions: firstly, why HRM is one of the most significant management functions, and secondly, who does HRM in organizations. This course will be suitable for senior students who want to extend their background in HRM before actually going into the business world, whether or not they plan to work as specialists in this area. Credit units: 3 ECTS Credit units: 5, Prerequisite: MAN 262.
