During two decades of HR experience, I have read numerous articles on the differences between leadership and management as well as how particular job titles needed to have more or less of each.
Instead of providing another article on the similarities and differences between management and leadership, this article will take a different perspective. Instead of treating them as separate, organizations should approach them as complementary and symbiotic concepts.
“One of the things I’ve found is that by moving some of the discussion online to message boards, you actually get a deeper level of conversation,” says Brian Chupp, professor of Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management. “In the classroom, you might have just 25 percent of the class dominate the conversation, with the rest of the class just content to sit and listen. But online, where everybody has to participate, I’ve found some of the most insightful comments come from someone who’ll rarely raise their hand in class.”
Chupp, who has taught both fully online and hybrid courses for other colleges at Purdue, says the beauty of Krannert’s hybrid program is that it simulates a real-world working environment, where students have to learn how to interact with each other in person and online, “a critical skill.”
If you are a Purdue student, including Krannert, you may choose to minor in Human Resource Management (HRM). The one exception is that students cannot major in General Management and minor in Human Resources Management. The HRM Minor requires you to successfully complete 15 credit hours from the HRM Minor plan of study. You would graduate with your bachelor's degree in your chosen major with a minor in HRM.
