Human Resource Management

Human Resource Management (HRM) is concerned with activities and decisions that form the employment relationship. Consideration is given to the impact HRM practices have upon the services of an organisation through the recruitment, selection and training of employees who will be successful in performing their job.
Human Resource Management is available as a major for the BMS. Human Resource Management may also be taken as a second major or as a supporting subject within other undergraduate degrees, subject to academic approval of the Faculty or School of Studies in which the student is enrolled. The requirements for the BMS major are prescribed in the Waikato Management School Student Handbook and some papers listed maybe for specific qualifications only.
To complete a second major in Human Resource Management, students must gain 120 points above 100 level in Human Resource Management, including HRMG241, HRMG342, and at least 40 further points above 200 level.
At least 80 points in HRMG coded papers must be included in a Human Resource Management major.

Note: Candidates must gain at least 60 points at 100 level in any subject(s) before enrolling in Human Resource Management papers at 200 level, and at least 180 points, including 60 points at 200 level, in any subject(s) before enrolling in Human Resource Management papers at 300 level.

Note on Assessment: To be eligible to pass these papers students should normally achieve a minimum grade of D in the internal assessment and the final examination, and an overall grade of C.
