HR Capstone Project

Course Code: HRM 4502

Academic Year: 2018-2019

In this capstone course, students will apply the business and human resources knowledge and skills developed throughout the entire degree program to develop a comprehensive and detailed business plan for the start-up of a human resources (HR) department where no formal centralized HR function exists in the company. Students will be expected to analyze the requirements, drawing on their knowledge of the organization and its operations as well as on their analysis of relevant and current theory and research, present their solutions and argue in favour of the recommended option. The plan and accompanying rationale should reflect a clear purpose, thorough research, thoughtful analysis, logically sequenced arguments and a well-justified recommendation. As part of the business plan, student groups will make a formal presentation to the company chief executive officer (CEO).
