The Graduate Certificate in Human Resource Management is a 12-credit hour program designed specifically for students seeking to grow as human resource leaders. The focus of this certificate is to enable HR professionals to better understand issues in management, talent acquisition and retention, compensation, and human resource law. Courses will be taught by faculty recruited for the program based upon their academic credentials and practical life experience. Through this program, students will be provided access to the understanding required for career advancement. This is the ideal program for people who care deeply about people and have a sincere desire to make a positive difference in the lives of others. Students may apply the 12 credit hours earned through the certificate towards the 30-credit hour Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership.
