Return to Programs Return to: Programs

Complex organizations spend a significant amount of capital on employee development and retention.  Organizational success is determined to a large extent by how well employees are recruited, trained and rewarded.  With the knowledge that many of today’s senior managers and leaders will be leaving the workforce over the next 5 to 8 years, a significant push is now required to identify and develop future leaders who will successfully guide organizations through the 21st century.

The Certificate in Human Resources Management provides the essential knowledge and skills needed by staff professionals to succeed in human resources management positions.  The 15-credit certificate (5 courses) focuses on the principles and concepts of group and team behavior leadership roles, the importance of organizational vision, values and ethics, assessing and capitalizing on human resources, and managing scarce resources in today’s complex organizations.

This hands-on program is ideal for human resource management professionals in the early to mid-level stages of their professional development.  Typical students are working professionals who have completed a bachelor’s degree, work in the field of human resources management, and are ready to assume greater responsibilities in their organization.
