The Business Management Human Resources program prepares students for a human resources career by providing comprehensive human resources knowledge for today's rapidly changing business environment. According to the 2010-2011 Occupational Outlook Handbook, employment is expected to grow much faster than the average for all human resources, training, and labor relations managers and specialists occupations.
The courses listed in the Business Management Human Resources Certificate are designed to align with the competencies identified by the Federal Government Human Resources Graduate School program.
