Graduate Certificate in Human Resources Management

 

The Graduate Certificate in Human Resources Management is an 18-hour course of study designed to focus on the multi-dimensional aspects of personnel operations within business organizations. The course of study emphasizes both the formal and informal sides of human resources management.

Students must complete the following six courses or approved substitutes if course waivers are appropriate:

MGMT 5600 Organizational Behavior and Administrative Management
MGMT 5621 Managing Human Resources
MGMT 5623 Compensation and Benefits
MGMT 5622 Union-Management Relations and Collective Bargaining
MGMT 5625 Selected Topics in Human Resource Management
LOM 5300 Statistical Analysis for Management Decisions

MGMT 5600, MGMT 5621 and LOM 5300 may be waived with appropriate undergraduate course work. If a student is able to waive any or all of these three courses, substitute courses (approved by both the Department Chair of Management and the Director of Graduate Studies in Business) will be provided. Substitute courses may include MGMT 5611, Advanced Organizational Behavior and Administrative Processes, or a course from outside the School of Business Administration. In all cases, 18 hours are needed to complete the Graduate Certificate in Human Resource Management.
