Business Administration, Human Resource Management Concentration, B.S.


The Human Resource Management concentration offers business administration majors the opportunity to acquire expertise required to manage human resources in changing environments. The primary objective of the concentration is to provide students with the broad-based skills required in managerial and leadership positions. Recognizing that functions traditionally performed in human resource departments are now being delegated throughout the organization, the concentration courses focus on providing students with the expertise necessary to understand the basic functions. An emphasis is placed on conceptual skills, interpersonal skills, general management skills, and selection of today’s workforce. The special topics course is designed to flexibly meet the needs of students in preparing for the current workforce by providing coverage of the most progressive topics in a still evolving field. This includes the legal aspects of human resource management, gender/cultural issues, and a focus on international human resource management. Students completing this program are prepared with the skills necessary to effectively assume management and leadership positions.
