An environment that is very fast paced and dynamic requires human resource professionals that are able to help manage a productive and efficient workforce. The human resource professional is a critical member of the management team and has direct responsibility for managing employee relations, wage and salary administration, benefits, as well as contract negotiations. This program can be obtained completely on line or face-to-face.

Career Outlook

Employment of human resource managers is projected to grow 9 percent from 2016 to 2026, about as fast as the average for all occupations. As new companies form and organizations expand their operations, they will need human resource managers to oversee and administer their programs and to ensure that firms adhere to changing and complex employment laws. Strong competition can be expected for most positions.
