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.
