Abstract: This study examines empirically, the relationship between size of the organization and Human Resource Management (HRM) practices that have been shown to contribute to organizational performance. The study draws on the resource-based view of the firm and hypothesized that big universities, operationalized as having >1000 academic and administrative staff can be differentiated from small Universities, defined as employing <1000 academic and administrative staff in their use of human resource management practices. Contrary to prior research findings, it was found that size did not correlate with the usage of HRM best practices. Both big and small universities used similar and identical HRM practices. Apparently, size did not differentiate between HRM practices employed in Nigeria Universities.
