Human Resource Management

Human resource management involves job design, employee recruitment and selection, performance appraisal, compensation, training, career management and health and labor relations.

If you have good communications and interpersonal skills, an understanding of human behavior, enjoy counseling and teaching, and think you'd like to help manage conflict and change, a career in human resource management might be perfect for you.  Many who concentrate in human resource management major in either business administration or psychology.

Our human resource management program includes 12 courses, from employment law to organizational behavior, to global management.

We offer a concentration in human resource management.
