Introduction to Personnel Management


Prof. Ph. D. Nick Zubanov

Termine (Vorlesung)

Do 10:00 - 11:30 R 611


People are the most important asset in the majority of organizations. Hence, the management of personnel – or human resource management (HRM), as it is sometimes called – is among the core topic in business-related education. This course will introduce students to the key issues in managing personnel. In particular, we will cover issues in employee recruitment, selection, training, promotion and turnover. Incentives based on employee performance, as well as performance measurement, will be covered, too. While this course is related to HRM, it differs from a typical HRM course by applying economic reasoning and mathematical models, where needed, to make sense of personnel management policies. Therefore, a familiarity with microeconomics will help students do well on this course.
