Students will complete a course project, two in-class exams, two observations, and a final comprehensive exam. Each of these is described in detail below. Course Project An important aspect of this course is obtaining practical first-hand experience with human resource management in the real world. This is accomplished through an "HR Partners" program which consists of the pairing of each student with a Human Resource Professional from a Bay Area business or organization. The purpose of this partnership is to: (1) Gain access to real-world human resource issues through discussion with Human Resource Professionals, and (2) Acquaint Human Resource Professionals with students' knowledge and expertise in human resources as taught in this course. Basically, we are using this program as an avenue of contact with organizations in order to give students personal experience with pressing human resource problems and to provide students access to businesses and organizations they desire to work for.
