Master of Business Administration / Human Resource Management

Program Details

Nova Southeastern University offers a Master of Business Administration with a concentration in Human Resources Management. The concept of human capital within an organization's daily function is an innovative way of increasing productivity and critical thinking among employees and supervisors. The value placed on the ‘labor element’ of a company’s production, whether it is goods, services or non-tangible assets such as communications, is now more commonly being treated as an intricate part of the success of a business. Earning an MBA in Human Resources Management will focus on the human element of business, human resources, as the vital link between success and failure.

Human resources (HR) is responsible for the employee experience. The primary objective of a human resource department is to attract and recruit suitable employees with proper industry marketing, then hire and oversee training and development during the entire employment with the organization. HR is also involved in employee terminations - including resignations, performance-related dismissals, and redundancies. Human resources is the human touch to the dynamic business industry.

Students earning the advanced degree, concentrating on Human Resources, will be responsible as the company's primary liaison between with the employee and the organization. The value created by incorporating the thoughts, emotions and psychology behind a workforce, increases productivity, work ethic and minimizes resentment. The relatively new understanding of creating a strategic working environment has come from increasing standards within unions and other governing organizations.
