Human Resource Management
Inspiring leadership in the business field.
Human resources (HR) professionals are critical players in all business organizations, big and small, publicly owned and private. From finding the right personnel and guiding staffing decisions to setting company policies, sharp and intelligent HR professionals are crucial to any organization's success. Marian's human resource management program will empower you to enter this dynamic field, or advance your current career in HR, through an in-depth study of recruiting, staffing, compensation theory, training and development, labor relations and equal employment opportunity.
Designed to meet the academic and professional needs of working adults looking to advance their careers, the human resource management program will deliver to you a solid theoretical base, an abundance of hands-on learning opportunities and powerful connections with other business professionals. The human resource management curriculum is designed to strengthen your knowledge and skills in a variety of areas that HR professionals encounter every day. From things like compensation and benefits, organizational training, HR management and other areas, you'll engage in case studies, small-group discussions and work-related research projects, developing knowledge that can be applied at your current job the very next day.
