What will I learn?

Human resource (HR) managers play an essential and strategic role in helping organizations recruit, train and retain an effective workforce. HR managers understand people and help organizations create an inclusive and productive workforce by providing performance and talent management systems, offering training, career development and work-life programs, and by creating effective compensation and benefits packages. HR managers also help organizations develop effective leaders and teams, and proactively work with top-management to build inclusive and positive organizational cultures. Effective HR managers are skilled in interpersonal communication, conflict resolution, diversity management, and perspective-taking.

This major prepares students for entry-level careers in either generalist or specialist areas of human resource management. The curriculum offers students a broad base of knowledge and skills needed to work with an increasing diverse and global workforce.
