In today’s highly competitive business environment, the roles and responsibilities of human resource professionals have become increasingly critical to corporate success. Human Resource Management (HRM) professionals must understand human resource issues and management trends in a competitive global economy as well as a broad spectrum of state and federal employment legislation.
The Master of Human Resource Management (MHRM) program is offered in an accelerated executive format for working professionals and is specifically customized to equip human resource managers with the tools necessary to effectively meet the challenges of an ever-changing business climate.
This 18-month, 30-credit-hour program (ten, 3-credit-hour graduate level courses) is designed to enhance the skills of individuals in the profession as well as those interested in pursuing a career in HRM.
The curriculum provides advanced education in organizational behavior and dynamics, staffing, training, compensation, benefits, career development, health and safety, and labour relations. Legal and regulatory requirements in these areas create a need for a firm foundation in employment law, a need that is met through a course dedicated to the topic. Participants will also have the opportunity to choose one human resource elective as a class.
MRHM students will go through the entire program together as a cohort class. The cohort structure provides an excellent forum for networking and sharing experiences while fostering a collaborative learning environment.
The Master of Human Resource Management program is offered by the UH Shidler College of Business, the only business program in Hawai‘i accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AASCB-International). AASCB-International is the premier national accrediting agency for schools of business and accounting.
