Hot New Minor Poised for Jump to the Majors

Subhead: 
The art of managing talent is the focus of strategic human resources

 

By John Chadwick

When Rutgers decided to offer a minor in Human Resource Management in the spring of 2009, no one was surprised when 240 students signed up for the program.

But few would have predicted what happened next: Over the course of two years the enrollment has more than tripled. A total of 827 students are enrolled in the program, which has expanded from 3 to 11 courses. And, the minor may soon become a major run jointly through the School of Management and Labor Relations, and the School of Arts and Sciences.
