The Master of Science in Human Resource Management (MSHRM) is a specialized professional program designed to offer the student an opportunity to obtain proficiency in contemporary human resource management concepts, activities, and skills, particularly as they are applied to developing and executing human resource management systems in support of strategic organizational objectives. As a result of successfully completing the MSHRM program, graduates should improve their ability to apply problem-solving skills to designing human resource management systems that fit the strategic objectives of organizations and to use written and verbal communication skills effectively to communicate the results of their problem-solving analyses and recommendations.
Candidates for admission must have a baccalaureate degree in any subject area from a regionally accredited college or university. The MSHRM degree program requires no prerequisite courses; however, MGT 6601, Advanced Concepts and Topics in Management, must be taken for graduate credit if the student does not have an undergraduate major in business. If the student has an undergraduate major in business, an elective course will be substituted.
