Brooklyn, N.Y. – Two new business programs offered by Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus School of Business, Public Administration and Information Sciences are sure to open up career pathways for job seekers. The offerings are an undergraduate course that will allow students to pursue an IT curriculum and an advanced certificate in human resource management for students looking to enter or advance within the human resource management (HRM) field.
The B.S. in Computer Information Systems (BS/CIS) is a four-year, 128-credit program that prepares students for technical, administrative and management careers in the analysis, design, development, implementation, maintenance, support, operation and management of computer and networked information systems.
“This program opens up a world of possibilities for those students who do not want to pursue a degree in computer science,” said Mohammed Ghriga, dean of the University’s School of Business. “It also introduces timely and topical courses for our undergraduate students in the department of computer science.”
On the graduate level, the business school’s Advanced Certificate in Human Resource Management provides a comprehensive foundation for Human Resource Management practice and profession. It gives students in other graduate programs the opportunity to acquire a dual set of knowledge, skills and abilities. For example, MBA students with a specialization in management may seek to supplement their credentials by obtaining the graduate advanced certificate in HRM. Undergraduate arts and sciences students may leverage the advanced certificate to gain a grasp of the role of HRM and the complexities of the work environment. Students who opt for the advanced certificate will be exempt from submitting GMAT or GRE scores, a benefit for those who have become unemployed in today’ s turbulent climate.
“Proper management of human resources—human capital—is a source of sustainable competitive advantage for high-performance organizations,” said Dean Ghriga, noting that the certificate is in complete alignment with the professional competencies outlined by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
