B.S. in Management with a Human Resource Concentration

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that holders of a bachelor's degree in business administration with a concentration in human resource management have become increasingly central to the success of any type of organization as firms and not-for-profit organizations increasingly look for ways to leverage their human assets. Employment is expected to grow much faster than average for all human resources positions including trainers, labor relations managers, and HR specialists.

The 120-credit B.S. in Management with a Human Resource Concentration has been developed to meet the certification requirements of the Society for Human Resource Managers (SHRM) and will provide students with skills and knowledge related to the following topical areas: employee and labor relations; employment law; job analysis and job design; organizational development; outcomes metrics and measurement; performance management; staffing and recruitment; strategic HR; total rewards (compensation, benefits); training and development; and workforce planning/talent management.

Recent management graduates are working in positions at the Bank of New York Mellon, Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse Group and other prominent companies.
