This course was formerly known as MGMT 440
Labor can be viewed as an input to firms' production processes. Labor markets are, however, very different from other input markets firms face. To manage human resources effectively, managers need to understand how and why labor markets are so unique. This course focuses on the specific properties of labor markets, and helps students develop effective strategies for managing this vital input. This course is targeted at students interested in careers as general managers, management consultants or entrepreneurs. Topics include job-market matching, non-wage compensation and benefits, training and human capital, careers and employees' career concerns, seniority, promotions, raids and offer-matching, job-market signaling, retirement, stock-option based pay, CEO compensation, up-or-out systems, discrimination in labor markets, goals and methods of labor unions, and more. Teaching methods include a mix of case discussion and lectures. Evaluation will be based on group work (problem sets and a project) and individual exams.
