B.S. in Human Resource Management
With human resources becoming an increasingly strategic function of many organizations, human resource professionals need the skills required to work effectively in a continually changing environment.
In addition to interviewing, hiring, and managing benefits, human resource departments play an integral role in managing employee communications and overall strategic planning. Human resource teams are often charged with shaping and managing company culture and providing an essential link between employees and upper management.
The goal of this program is to provide individuals with the human resource and management skills required to work effectively at a professional level in a continually changing human resource environment. The program’s focus is on the development of individual skill sets at the operational level to prepare students for administrative, specialist, and generalist human resource functions and positions—with an emphasis on becoming a valued partner within the organization.
