Human Resource Management, MSHRM


Developing sound and legal policies for selecting, developing and compensating employees are fundamental necessities for today's organizations. The objectives of the human resource management program are to provide professional and technical competence in the management of human resources, and build the attitudes and motivational skills necessary for developing employees. Students learn the managerial techniques and procedures that can serve a business organization by harmonizing economic objectives with individual and group needs.


To earn the MSHRM, students must successfully complete 31 semester hours: a one-semester-hour orientation course, six core courses, and four electives. Students with prior course work in human resource management may petition to substitute a more advanced course for a core course with the approval of the program chair.
