Human Resources

Upon completion of this program, students can leverage knowledge and skills to work as highly effective human resources management professionals or as managers who partner effectively with human resources departments to acquire, develop, and reward talented employees. 

The certificate in human resources and employment relations is a graduate-level, five-course certificate that prepares professionals to create a more just and productive work environment, ultimately providing their companies with a competitive advantage through the people they hire.

It is an excellent specialization for students who are currently pursuing a Quinlan graduate degree, professionals with a business degree, or any professional who needs to understand employment processes and the legal implications of attracting, retaining, and motivating employees. Successful certificate program students come from a variety of backgrounds and undergraduate degrees.
