Anyone can manage things, you will manage people

Anyone can fire a mediocre employee; the real challenge is in saving them. Do you think that through motivation and communication you could move a mediocre employee into a great employee? Are you interested in a career that would challenge your business skills and your people skills? Human Resources Managers are vital to the strategic mission of the organization and understand their power to contribute by developing and influencing a team of employees and staff that will lead the company into the future. HR Managers are leaders in the organization who are driven to assist others in succeeding. They understand the business side (managing a budget, negotiating benefits, assuring fair pay, etc.) while also advocating for the team and assuring the workforce knows they are valued and treated fairly.

People are at the heart of every business. And every facet of the employee experience—from recruitment, to benefits, to overall job satisfaction—is influenced by an HR manager. As a student, you'll engage with real-world scenarios faced by HR professionals every day. From labor relations, Diversity Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), policy, compensation & benefits, hiring practices and HR policy, this program covers every role within HR units of all sizes.

In addition to real-world learning scenarios, you'll learn HR-specific problem solving and situational analysis, data analytics and visualization, strategic thinking and planning, and oral and written communication. Upon graduating the program, you'll have the skills to join a movement toward a better, more inclusive workplace for all!
