Management and Human Resources
What is it like being an HR Student at UW Oshkosh?
MHR students engage in a variety of individual and team activities in the classroom. Much of the learning is application-based. For example, students in the employee relations course negotiate a contract, students in the compensation course build and organization’s pay structure, and students in the training and development course design a training program. Classrooms allow for team activities, large, and small group discussions. The computer lab within Sage Hall is easy to access and contains a full menu of software programs used by the MHR students including PeopleTrak, software used by many companies to plan and track their human resources. Students can complete projects, collaborate with classmates and develop their skills using free software provided by the University and convenient break-out rooms for team meetings located in Sage Hall.
Outside the Classroom
Beyond the classroom, in order to develop professional skills, the MHR student clubs offer speakers, field trips and networking opportunities.
