Human Resource Management Major, BS in Business Administration – Dual Concentration with International Business

Human resource management requires attracting, developing, and maintaining an effective workforce within an organization.

They also develop training programs, performance appraisal procedures, and compensation systems.

Human resource management education provides one the technical knowledge and training to immediately assume a position in human resources in a modern business. Human resource management professionals may also hold positions in government agencies or non-profit organizations.

Students interested in a career in human resource management will have a broad-based business education, which includes financial management, supply chain management, operations, human resources, business strategy, economics, and statistics. In addition, human resource management students will be grounded in the following areas: leadership, foundations of human resource management, acquiring talent, growing talent, and retaining talent.
