HRM at Otago will equip you with skills and knowledge that will kick-start your career and give you great potential to play an important role in making sure organisations manage their most valuable resource – their people – as best they can. HRM is perfect as both a stand-alone degree or to complement other areas of interest. During your studies at Otago you’ll gain both knowledge and practical skills associated with HRM principles to enable you to acquire the right talent, in the right place and at the right time. Career opportunities The HRM major and minor will give you the skill set to apply for HRM roles in large or small, public or private organisations. These usually begin with HR administrator roles, with progress through to advisors and managers.

Alternatively, you can specialise in areas such as employment relations, talent management, learning and development, or recruiting. The skill set gained in the HRM major will also enable you to enter graduate recruitment schemes.Degree optionsBecause HRM is focused on an organisation’s most important asset – its people – completing an HRM major or minor alongside another discipline available in the BCom degree makes perfect sense. HRM also complements many disciplines studied outside the Business School, such as Gender Studies, Law, Psychology, and Sociology. Otago’s flexible degree structures enable you to study HRM alongside many majors. Human Resource Management can also be one of the two majors that comprise a BACom or BComSc combined degree.
