DEVELOPING TOMORROW’S RECRUITERS: A WIN-WIN MODEL FOR CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT

Debbie Good

Abstract


A major mid-Atlantic research university’s College of Business recently created a Society of Human Resource aligned curriculum for its new Human Resources management major.  The curriculum of each required human resource course in the major includes a term long experience-based project often involving a corporate partner.  The required staffing course has adopted a new corporate partnership model which extends the experience-based learning into cutting-edge areas of the field to benefit not only the student but the corporate partners as well.  This paper examines the development of the curricular model and corporate partnerships with special attention to the value added to students and the companies.  Student and company feedback on the project suggests strong interest and appreciation for the project itself and the supporting curricular model.
