Assignments Overview
Welcome to HRM 599, the capstone course for your graduate degree. This course brings together the key concepts and learning from other courses you have taken in your MSHRM program. You will culminate your graduate degree journey with a final Capstone Project which will build on the previous three (3) assignments in the course. In addition, the job posting and resume / cover letter posting activity in Week 8 discussion also bridges the activities in Assignments 3 and 4 together. The combination of activities involved in your capstone project will prepare you for many key responsibilities you will face as a new Human Resource Manager.
For all four (4) assignments, as well as the Week 8 Discussion, you will be working with the same company, which you will select in Week 3 Assignment 1. It is recommended that you select a company in an industry in which you have some familiarity and / or experience, as you will be researching key HR issues within that industry.
