About this course
The Master of Human Resources with a concentration in Human Resource Management is designed to provide qualified individuals from any undergraduate major with the conceptual, analytical, and operational knowledge needed to assume a position in human resource management.
The program is based on an orientation which provides a proper balance of theoretical and practical knowledge as well as in-depth preparation in human resource management.
Philosophically, the program assumes that excellence in human resource management requires an understanding of both the internal aspects of the modern profit or non-profit organization and the external environment in which it functions.
To acquire this understanding, students are exposed to courses in the areas of management, accounting, finance, economics, and human resource administration. At the completion of the program, students are expected to possess the sophisticated analytical, verbal, and intellectual skills needed to forecast personnel needs, hire new employees, and create an environment which promotes maximum employee satisfaction and efficiency.
Applicants must have earned a baccalaureate degree from regionally accredited college or university in any major.
Students are evaluated primarily on the basis of the distribution of courses they have taken as undergraduate and, if applicable, courses taken in another graduate program, and on their undergraduate and graduate grades. An overall undergraduate quality point average of 3.00 on a 4.00 scale in a program acceptable to the admissions committee, including successful completion of business and economics courses taken as an undergraduate, is expected.
