HRM 7130 Degree Project (3 units)
- Medium of Instruction:
The Degree Project provides students with an opportunity to apply their HRM and research methods skills and knowledge in an investigation of a problem or issue of practical significance. Specifically, the Project will develop students' skills in problem identification, consolidate their understanding of HRM issues and research methods, and deepen their understanding of the role of HRM in contributing to organizational effectiveness.
Students will work in teams on a client-based project or an applied research topic. The client-based project involves the identification of an HRM-related organizational problem, a thorough investigation of the problem with appropriate data collection and analysis, and the development of well-founded, justified and implementable recommendations to the organisation's management. This is essentially a "consulting"-type assignment, which must take place in a real organization, either students' own or another.
An applied research topic involves a multi-organisation or industry-wide investigation (rather than focusing on one organization) of an HRM-related issue and a thorough investigation of the issue with appropriate data collection and analysis and development of implications for practices. Such projects should also identify in principle who would be the client for such a report.
