The purpose of this course is to provide a global perspective to students pursuing an MPS degree in Human Resources and Employment Relations (HRER). In addition to providing comparisons with U.S. employment relations policies and practices, the course will give insight into the manner in which Croatia has navigated its emergence from post WWII Soviet domination as part of Yugosolavia to become the most recent member of the European Union.
We offered a similar course with travel to Scotland in March 2018. Students conducted work online five weeks prior to the travel abroad. Upon return from the abroad experience, students completed the course by submitting a final paper. This embedded course proposal with travel to Zagreb is identical in structure. This course will be an option for online graduate students seeking to complement their online degree with an international experience.
This course also is consistent with LER's strategic objectives, one of which is to increase global awareness and involvement of our students.
Dr. Maja Vidovic, Lecturer at Rochester Institute of Technology-Croatia and part-time, online instructor in Penn State's MPS HRER program is excited to host us at RIT.Dr. Vidovic has agreed to provide us with classroom space, faculty to provide seminars, on relevant topics, and contacts to help connect us with business, unions and government officials that will provide opportunities for our students to make site visits.
