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.

The C-SC Difference

Our faculty have real-world experience – executives, entrepreneurs, business owners, employers, and employees! Guest lecturers include HR executives from the area’s largest employers. C-SC relationships with regional employers allow us to arrange internship and observation opportunities that allow real-life experience. Recent projections from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show a growth of five percent for the field with over 65,000 new openings annually. In the Benefits and Compensation area, growth is expected to average 11 percent through 2026.

As a Professor, I always emphasize that a company succeeds because of ‘people, process and technology.’ People always come first! A major in Human Resource Management prepares you to have a role in recruitment, onboarding, socializing, training, coaching and developing the necessary people skills required to make a company successful. HR jobs are challenging and complex and will require you to keep your knowledge, skills and abilities fine-tuned to be an effective leader of change.
