Program Details

    This course introduces human resources management as a way to achieve high levels of organizational performance and focuses on employment practices in the United States and Australia.

    Using a comparative U.S.-Australian perspective, we will evaluate the strategic importance, ethical issues, and organizational impact related to the following areas: talent acquisition and talent management; organizational development; the legal environment of business; training and development; diversity; and compensation. Topics are presented and discussed within their larger organizational context, with particular attention paid to the legal environment and the rights of both employers and employees.
