Master of Science in Human Resource Management

A versatile graduate degree program designed to prepare students for a career in HR management.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

The Master of Science in Human Resource Management degree program is one of 42 Human Resource Management programs worldwide recognized as being fully aligned with the curriculum guidebook of the Society for Human Resource Management® (SHRM®). Our students learn how to consider the perspectives of both employees and employers, the causes and effects of ineffectively managing people, the importance of employee capabilities, and methodologies for change management. They look at trends that managers and employees are likely to face in the future, and how to monitor legal requirements in dealing with employees.

Our students gain skills that benefit them on the job, and in life. By studying Human Resource Management, students are able to apply concepts and principles to on the job situations. Our students learn this skill in the best possible way: with a combination of course work led by professionals in the field and interactions with peers who bring real-world experience through high level discussions and case studies.

Though not a requirement, some students in the program choose to elect an internship in Human Resources as an elective which allows them to gain meaningful "hands on" experience. In some cases these internship opportunities parlay into a job offer upon completion of the degree.
