Description:
This course was formerly known as MGMT 440
Hiring, developing and retaining the right employees is crucial for success in modern firms. Big data is transforming how firms recruit and develop talent. Hiring, training and promotion practices increasingly rely on both economic principles and quantitative analysis. The purpose of this course is to introduce a powerful set of economic concepts for human resource management and to use analytics to make better informed decisions on personnel strategy. For example, we will use statistical software to predict the potential of applicants to improve hiring decisions or we will use experimental designs to evaluate the effectiveness of training and talent development programs. Examples of additional topics covered in the course are productivity estimation, turnover and employee satisfaction, promotions, and discrimination. In modern firms, these topics take up a significant mindshare of CEOs and other senior leaders. This course is designed for MBA students who aspire to start, lead, and build businesses; this is not a course for those interested in careers as administrators of human resource management systems..
