“The competence and skill needed to effectively manage people in work settings will be increasingly important to organizations in future years. To meet this challenge, this program is intended for two types of management-oriented students: (1 ) Students who believe that they will be more effective in their future careers if they master the skill of managing people in technical work settings as line managers and (2) Students who plan to specialize in the industrial relations and personnel functions as staff managers.”

Back in the late 1800s the idea at the cutting edge of business was that people work like machines. If you gave them the right tools and told them exactly how to do their job, they would work better. Since then, human resources have come a long way. People are recognized as psychologically complicated individuals at the heart of every organization. If you major in human resources development management, you’ll study people and the workplace — and you’ll learn what it takes to meet the needs of people in the workplace.”

The Human Resource Development Management program (HRDM) is designed to provide students with theories and concepts of basic management, compensation and benefits, legal issues in HRM, labor relations, workforce effectiveness, employee training and development.

The program aims to produce graduates who are equipped with knowledge and abilities in recruiting, compensation, benefits among other human resources related fields. Likewise, it will prepare the graduates for a career in the field of Human Resource Management in various corporations whether in the manufacturing, marketing and service sectors, or in the different types of industries such as pharmaceutical, semi-conductor, food and beverage, banking industries and other types of organizations. Built into the program is the normal evolution of Human Resource (HR) profession at the various stages of development of an enterprise. At the infancy stage of a company, the HR organization is limited to perform the traditional functions in personnel management. As it grows, HR gets involved in the administrative processes to ensure that policies, systems and procedures are in place to have consistency and order in handling and managing people. Thereafter, HR assists line managers in the acquisition and development of skills and competencies of employees before it engages in the more strategic directions of making its employees more competitive in the business environment given global competition.

The program aims to produce graduates for careers in the Human Resource Department of general businesses, government entities and Non-government institutions as management trainee in human resource, office assistant, administrative assistant, human resource assistant, executive assistant, entrepreneur, recruitment assistant, compensation assistant, benefits assistant and into training and development related positions.
