"Having an emphasis in Human Resource Management introduces students to the "behind the scenes" world of business. This emphasis area attracts individuals who share a passion for working hands-on with associates at all levels to solve real world problems and serve as a strategic business partner with any company. With classes ranging from Business Law to Special Topics HR, students gain a holistic view of Human Resource Management. During my time in this emphasis I have gained knowledge of HR functions, from studying best practices for recruiting the most promising individuals for a company to outlining what a training and development program would look like to grow internal employees with a company, the classes taken within this emphasis area have fabricated a solid foundation of knowledge for me and all other students in the emphasis to use in our future with HR." - Morgan Reeves
