2. Pre-Requisites

In addition, the student must be familiar with the use of technological tools, the search for information and the use of the Moodle platform (Virtual Campus).

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

This subject is part of the module 5 of Business Organization.

The annual subject introduces the student during the first semester in the organizational field of the company with the intention of analyzing organizational structures, designs, theories and systems to organize processes. In the second semester, it analyzes the direction of human resources, seeking to offer a broad vision of the main concepts and essential techniques to manage the personnel of a company in a way that contributes to the achievement of the organizational objectives.

The basic justification of the knowledge imparted in this subject starts from analyzing the companies from both an economic dimension (as a system of allocation of resources in the market) and organizational dimension (as a system of interrelated elements with a final objective). The management of any company requires making compatible both dimensions, making decisions based on the appropriate economic calculation, but without forgetting the integrated functioning of the organization, paying special attention to its human elements. Once the economic aspects have been addressed in other subjects of the previous course, the subject "Business Organization and Human Resources Management" aims to develop the necessary skills to approach the company from an organizational perspective and thus optimize its internal design, serving both variables structural (differentiation and integration) as well as to behavioral processes (individual and collective). So, this subject together with the Introduction to Management marks the pillars to understand other subjects of the Study Plan, such as Strategic Management, Development Strategies or Operations Management.
