There is far more to Human Resources than just hiring employees. In fact,
it's a profession that covers everything from staff selection, orientation and training, to wage and salary administration, benefits management and pension plans. And you'll learn all about those subjects and more in this engaging course. You'll be introduced to the critical components of HR management, you'll acquire the skills and knowledge you need to effectively manage employment relationships, and you'll develop your ability to perform the functions of a human resource professional. Then you can do the hiring.

Our approach

As in the workplace, teamwork is key here. Sure, there will be engaging assignments and activities, but you'll also form ad-hoc teams to discuss real-world subjects presented by business experts. You'll formulate strategies to solve problems or seize opportunities. Above all, you'll have ample chance to contribute personally to the process. This course is designed with a combination of online live synchronous learning where the instructor and the students meet in a virtual classroom (Zoom) at the same time, and asynchronous work guided by the instructor and completed by students in their own time.
