Human Resources Management Degree with an Emphasis in Administration – Bachelor of Science
The Human Resources field developed in the late 1800’s when manufactures realized their most valuable assets were their employees. Human Resources Managers are central to business operations and are primarily responsible for the management of people within organizations, focusing on policies and systems.
An HR Manager undertakes a number of responsibilities pertaining to the maximization of employee performance in service of an employer’s strategic objectives as well as recruitment, training and development, employee benefits, and industrial relations. The Human Resources Management Program with an Emphasis in Administration provides applied skills, knowledge, and understanding of human resource functions in private and public sector organizational settings.
Students that complete this program successfully should be able to demonstrate strong communication skills, apply the core management functions of human resource planning, and develop personnel policies and implement procedures to effectively realize intended objectives of the organization they support.
Administrators are focused on developing efficient organization of people and other resources to direct activities toward common goals and objectives. The Emphasis in Administration concentrates on learning in team-oriented environments. Students demonstrate proficiency through real-world simulations to develop their organizational and managerial skills. This cultivates the students’ ability to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate complex business situations that affect both management and personnel.
