Program Details

What better way to learn the ins-and-outs of leading and managing a workforce, than to acquire strong teambuilding skills?  Penn State’s MBA program in Human Resources focuses on teamwork.  You will work with your classmates as part of a team, completing projects and creating contemporary business solutions.

Online, you will work asynchronously.  This enables you the flexibility to learn on your own schedule.  However, if you like more interaction and want to work synchronously, there are opportunities to interact with your classmates and share discussion.
