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, logistics, 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.
