Educational Philosophy: My educational philosophy is to encourage each student to gain an insight into the workings of today’s business settings. Also to give the student an opportunity to research these organizations using the internet and printed material to obtain the necessary information to make a practical application of the material. As a capstone to the Human Resource Management degree each student should have a working knowledge of the issues pertaining to dealing with people in today’s work environment.
