I, Dr. Osaro Rawlings Igbinomwanhia welcome you to the Department of Human Resource Management. Our Department is one of four new departments in the Faculty of Management Sciences and our mission is to produce students with the relevant human resource orientation, attitudes, knowledge, and skills required for personal effectiveness and for bringing out the best in the people of an organisation. Thus, we intend to be the reference point for HR theory and practice in Nigeria.
The Department has competent and highly motivated teaching faculty equipped to teach and guide research in all the areas of human resource management. All staff in the Department commits themselves and their everyday actions and practices to be guided by our core values which are: productive scholarship, team spirit and shared learning, integrity, mutual respect, responsiveness, creativity and innovativeness, commitment, transparency and accountability.
In addition to professionally delivering on our curriculum, the Department operates a formal Student Mentoring Programme where every student in their freshman year is assigned to a Mentor who is usually an academic staff. The mentors use their experience, influence, and expertise to promote the students’ academic and personal development. Also, the Department attempts to place students in business organisations every year in order to give them practical exposure in human resource management.
Our postgraduate programme (M.Sc in Human Resource Management) is one of the most sought after in the Faculty of Management Sciences. This specialized functional approach to management provides for the preparation of Human Resource management teachers and researchers who can keep pace with the ever- rising demand for human resource management education and advance the frontiers of human resource management knowledge.
I hereby invite you to share in our experiences. Thank you and welcome.Sincerely,
Osaro Rawlings Igbinomwanhia, Ph.D
Ag. Head of Department
