Human Resource Management

A Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) with a concentration in Human Resource Management prepares students to become leaders in a myriad of fields and industries—as human resources are at the heart of every workplace.  

Human resource (HR) managers oversee an organization’s human resources or employees. HR management professionals work both directly and indirectly with all employees of an organization and serve to bridge the gap between upper management and their employees. They also strive to make all members of the organization feel supported and motivated. The Human Resource Management concentration instructs students on how to approach such issues as employee rights, performance management, and global talent management, creating effective managers with an affinity for people. Other core aspects of employment human resource managers handle include  

  • recruiting and staffing,
  • administration of compensation and benefits,
  • implementing employee training protocols, and
  • ensuring company compliance with labor laws.
