The MS in Human Resource Management (HRM) program has been designed for learners who may want to pursue a career in HRM as well as HRM professionals who choose to expand their skills and knowledge. The program offers two tracks: Track I is designed for those who are newer to the HRM field and need a comprehensive perspective on HRM, while Track II is intended for those with more experience who want to customize their program of study to align with this experience and their career interests.
The program adopts a human capital perspective throughout. Learners prepare to oversee, develop, and manage the human capital of small to large organizations, thereby addressing the vital roles of the human resource (HR) professional in both operational and strategic settings. Students have the opportunity to develop and enhance critical management, strategic, organizational, and analytical skills. Through simulation experiences of reality-based scenarios as well as traditional curricula, learners consider best practices and emerging trends in the specializations found within HRM. The program of study aligns with the competencies curriculum specified by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
Note: The MS in Human Resource Management program is offered in two different learning modalities: the course-based modality and the competency-based modality, Tempo Learning®.
Note: Students who begin their program in Fall 2019 or later undertake the redesigned MS in Human Resource Management curriculum below. Students enrolled prior to Fall 2019 continue under the previous program of study .
