Business Admin with Human Resource Mgmt (B.S.)
Our business administration with human resource management program prepares our students to attract, sustain and manage the workforce that all organizations need—a workforce that, in a fluid and flexible local economy influenced by global pressures, gains and holds strategic competitive advantage for the organization. With concentrations in administration, training & development, and public & government agencies, we give our students a breadth of knowledge about human resources with a depth of insight into certain areas of human resource management.

Both of these certifications indicate readiness, competence and experience to potential employers.
