The portfolio is a collection of projects or assignments that reflect the knowledge, skills, and abilities that students have acquired throughout their time majoring in HR at UW Oshkosh. Click here to see the portfolio requirements that each HR major prepares in Bus. 462 - HR Topics. HR majors will begin to develop a Portfolio of their course work by including one class assignment that is “portfolio-ready from each of their HR courses (BUS 352, BUS 362, BUS 363, BUS 364). The Portfolio will be collected and reviewed in the BUS 462 course. The Portfolio will not be graded in the BUS 462 course—instead, portfolios will be reviewed by practicing HR professionals.
