Master of Human Resource Management
The Master of Human Resource Management (MHRM) program addresses the need for skilled professionals who are well versed in the current theories and best practices of the field. In the program, students take a series of classes covering key human resource management (HRM) areas such as employee relations, staffing, training, legal environment and rewards. The program is targeted at practicing HR professionals who wish to advance in the profession as well as managers with HR responsibilities.
Admission to the MHRM program is granted to applicants who show high promise of success in postgraduate business study. Previous academic training in business is not required for admission to the MHRM program. Applicants may have backgrounds in such diverse fields as engineering, liberal arts, education and health related areas. The specific content of a student's previous education is less important than evidence that the student has sound scholarship, strong personal motivation, and the the ability to develop HRM leadership skills.
To be admitted to the MHRM program, an applicant must:
- Possess an undergraduate degree;
- Have a minimum GPA of 2.750 (out of 4.000) in the last 60 credit hours of coursework, including any graduate courses. Students with a lower GPA may apply with the GRE or GMAT score for consideration of probationary admission; and
- Submit a statement that articulates the applicant's reason for seeking admission to the program (500 words maximum).
The application deadline is May 1 for the fall semester, and October 1 for the spring semester.
The program consists of 30 credit hours. Twenty-four (24) of the credit hours are composed of eight required courses. The remaining 6 credit hours are composed of elective courses.
