A minor in Human Resource Management (HRM) prepares students for careers in HRM. Human resource managers have responsibilities related to recruiting and selecting employees, designing and managing pay and benefits, and employee performance management. An HRM minor is also helpful to students who expect to work in small business where owners/managers have broad managerial responsibilities including management of employees and for students in Science, Engineering and Nursing who manage teams of employees.
