The Human Resource (HR) Management Concentration offers a broad overview of the human resource function in three courses.

If students are new to human resource management or simply want to strengthen employee management skills, this program is designed to help by (a) enhancing HR knowledge and effectiveness, (b) clarifying key employment and labor laws, (c) promoting a better understanding of HR to non-HR staff and (d) developing a common dictionary of HR terms for any organization.

The essentials of recruiting, interviewing, testing, selecting, socializing, training and establishing pay and benefit plans are important to all employees, both HR and non-HR.

Understanding of workplace laws such as Equal Employment Opportunity, Occupational Safety and Health, Fair Labor Standards, Family Medical Leave, Americans with Disabilities and Veteran’s Re-employment is essential for everyone, whether students are employed by a for-profit, non-profit or government organization.
