The online Master of Science in Human Resource Management and Development program encompasses the strategic skills needed to provide graduate students the knowledge to lead people, lead a business, and lead change. A trained and educated Human Resources manager can utilize human capital and inherent labor skills into opportunities for competitive advantage.

The master’s degree program in HR introduces students to the course work needed to analyze and train a workforce in matters of industry standards, safety, corporate culture, equal employment opportunity, wages, health care, retirement plans, and family leave laws.
