Online Master of Science in Management (MSM) in Human Resources Management
Human Resource Management is one of four comprehensive MSM concentrations offered by MVNU.
An MSM in Human Resource Management enables students to develop a robust professional repertoire, thanks in part to extensive concentration courses that far surpass what's offered by the curricula of a traditional MSM program or human resource management master's degree. Human resource professionals need to think systematically—meaning they must have an in-depth knowledge of the entire organization, its various moving parts, and how each element impacts other systems within it. Human resource management professionals also need a thorough understanding of their organization’s most valuable assets: its employees.
Graduates of MVNU’s MSM with a concentration in Human Resource Management are prepared to become thoughtful, effective, and ethical leaders within their organizations, developing a solutions-oriented workforce that fosters collaboration and engagement.
