MASTER OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION, HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT CONCENTRATION 39 CREDITS HRM CON MBA
Recent developments such as demographic changes in the labor force, increased global competition, changes in laws and public policy, and new theories of organizational behavior have made human resource management especially important for all organizations. Workplace needs will be challenging in the twenty-first century, and the human resources manager will need to be informed and able to adapt to the changes. In addition, leaders in this area need to think systematically and strategically about managing the firm's human capital.
The Human Resources Management Concentration is designed for individuals who are currently employed in human resources or who are considering seeking employment in this area. This concentration provides the information and tools necessary for the development of successful human resource management strategies in a complex global environment.

In addition, students who want to sit for the Certified Professional Manager (CM) exam from the Institute of Certified Professional Managers (ICPM) should complete MGMT699 as one of their course options in this concentration.
