The Center for Human Resource Management’s (CHRM) corporate partners not only have access to some of the best business students in the country, they also have the opportunity to interact with those students. By speaking in classrooms settings, participating in CHRM events and being recognized through special campus displays, CHRM companies become top-of-mind career choices among our students. Our partners are welcome to come into the classroom and discuss current issues and hot topics. This creates win-win situations in which executives get to know students, and students stay apprised of current trends and best practices. The majority of our Masters of Science in Human Resource Management students are hired by CHRM corporate partners. Access to high quality students and the ability to directly influence their education are two of the main reasons CHRM partners value their membership.
CHRM is interested in providing innovative and impactful executive education experiences. These include quarterly learning events at Mays Business School’s CityCentre facility in Houston. In addition, the center offers professional development opportunities for HR practitioners as well as executive education seminars tailored to the needs of our corporate partners.
CHRM provides numerous opportunities to network with top HR executives and HR scholars. We host two CHRM board meetings each year–one in College Station, the other in Dallas or Houston. In addition, we host lunch-and-learn events and other networking activities throughout the year where our partners can bounce ideas off of each other. Ideas generated this way have spurred innovative changes in the way we train our students and even in how our corporate partners conduct their HR practices.
"The Center for Human Resources Management at Texas A&M is comprised of a strong network of Fortune 500 Companies. Working with the CHRM has been extremely beneficial for ExxonMobil in creating and sustaining a strong pipeline of very talented Human Resources professionals."
