Human Resource Management - Doctor of Business Administration (DBA)

Return to: Doctor of Business Administration (DBA)  

The Human Resource Management specialization enables students to gain an understanding of how human and knowledge capital can be leveraged to create and drive an organization’s agility, growth, and success. Coursework examines contemporary organizational issues that human resource (HR) professionals must address as strategic partners to executive leadership, such as succession planning for the organization’s long-term success, creating and managing external strategic partnerships, and comprehensive planning from an HR perspective for the organization’s overall business goals. Students in this specialization have the opportunity to research and address issues relevant to their interests and organization. This specialization culminates with the creation of an annual HR operating plan (AHROP), which allows students to apply their knowledge to a tangible action plan that can be implemented immediately.
