In certain ways the business school produced people are responsible for economic upliftment of the nations or downturn of the economies as shown by the recession a couple of years ago. Whether these are business schools or not, it is the education systems and the way they are managed that determine the efficiency and effectiveness of the human resources in a country.

HRM is taught in these institutions as a part of the MBA curriculum or as a separate stream of specialization. When it is offered as a stream of specialization, these institutions produce HR managers who are supposed to influence and impact the lives of numerous employees who serve different organizations in various ways.

The credibility of management schools is often determined by the extent to which they practise what they preach. Hence in a subject like HRM or HRD, the students and participants become extremely sensitive if the institution where they study does not have right practices and does not attempt to practise what they preach.

This book covers various aspects of HRM in management schools. Recruitment, selection, performance appraisal, development and culture building aspects.


Target Audience: Policy makers in Management education in India, Management of Business Schools, Students of Management.
