フィリピン留学で学ぶMBAの英語(8) Human Resource Management

さて、今日はHRM / Human Resource Managementというモジュールのご紹介。いまでは、ヒューマン・リソース/エイチアールって和製英語にもなっていますよね。要は、人事全般についてです。人を採用して、教育して、日々のマネジメントをして、そんなことに関するレクチャーを受けて、結構色々と議論した思い出があります。



Introduction to the module

The complex economic, social and technological changes that are continually shaping the context of work in organizations are having a profound impact on how to best manage and develop the people within them. This core module aims to equip students with a key foundation in human resource management (HRM) and in how it can be drawn upon to improve organizational effectiveness and performance.

The module focuses on developing appropriate knowledge and skills in order to utilize HR strategically so as to gain organizational benefits. They are multidisciplinary in being underpinned by management theory and drawing upon appropriate models and concepts from across the social sciences. The approach to learning offered by the teaching faculty combines independent study alongside group and tutored teaching that integrates theory, research and practice within a supportive pedagogical framework. The research of the lecturers on the programme feeds directly into their teaching of the unit, providing students with new and fresh insights into the topics covered.

More specifically, the aims of the module are:

1, To develop an appreciation of the realm of HRM and people management more generally

2, To provide an understanding of the potential of HRM and people management to contribute to improved organizational and business performance

3, To identify how strategic HRM can improve organizational performance

4, To provide an understanding of the range of human resource practices that can be used and identify appropriate contexts for their application

5, To develop an appreciation of the implications of the context within which organizations operate for people management

6, To develop an appreciation of the role of the line manager in promoting organizational performance

7, To develop an understanding of the evidence available on ‘what works at work’ which has appropriate regard to organizational context.

As the module evolves and progress is made covering core material, students will apply the concepts, frameworks and approaches it introduces to a particular organization to develop their knowledge and understanding.

(Summative) Assessment

Summative assessment, assessing students’ achievement in the module, is in two parts. The first element of summative assessment is the individual assignment or coursework (see appendix at the end of this guide).

After the end of the module, there will be a conventional exam (date TBC). This will allow a more broad ranging assessment of students’ critical engagement with the frameworks, concepts and evidence considered. The feedback on examination will be provided to students in the form of a written report that will appear on Blackboard within four weeks of students having taken the examination.
