IPSY 8730 - The Development of Human Capital Within Organizations


(4 cr.) How do organizational leaders determine who to hire and in what ways do they ensure that capable employees are sustained and managed in a way that guarantees high performance and organizational achievement? Students in this course have the opportunity to answer such questions through the examination of advanced research topics, including the development and management of human capital within organizations. Students engage in group activities, discussions, and writing assignments on human resource concepts related to training and development, rewards and compensation, individual performance management, the role of human resources with individuals for global positions, and organization-wide succession planning. Through extensive reading and literature review, students identify potential research topics for their dissertation and explore the global and ethical dimensions pertaining to course subject matter.
