A Competency- Based Model for Developing Human Resource Professionals
Journal of Management Education
This article describes a framework for the design and implementation of a competency-based curriculum for graduate management education. The article also outlines how this model has been implemented at one university in the context of a graduate degree in human resource management. Among the significant challenges discussed are the identification of competencies required for professional success; the identification of the specific traits, knowledge, and skills that combine to create competence; and the creation of a curriculum and the associated assessment tools necessary to promote the acquisition of competencies. Student orientation, student development, and student assessment are discussed.
