The Graduate Certificate in Human Resources Curriculum

Through three graduate courses, students will learn techniques often reserved for only high potential executives:

Learn to attract the best people, reward the right behaviors and develop better leaders within your organization and see how the principles of differentiation, trust and candor drive winning results. This course is an introduction to people management, with a focus on putting people before numbers, nurturing talent and practicing fair and balance management. You will explore the concept of differentiation in employee management, examine ways to enhance the employee experience, and determine the best metrics to track to achieve organizational goals.

Human Resources encompass much more than benefits and birthdays. A leader must find ways to navigate past this perception themselves with not only a seat at the table but as an independent confidant to the CEO. Students will explore how to align the competencies and behaviors of the workforce with the strategic goals of the organization. Also, Human Resource leaders need to develop themselves as the in-house experts in dealing with complex ethical and legal issues facing employers today. Students will examine the various regulatory agencies, policies, and guidelines impacting the workforce and identify ways to ensure compliance while driving results. Students will learn about the impact of Federal and State Regulations as they pertain to employee relations, compensation, hiring, and terminations.
As Jack states, “Every time you talk about changing, you have to put together the rationale for the change. You have to answer the question of what’s in it for the people who are forced to do something different than they are used to doing.” Business leaders need to stay ahead of the game and help people within their organization to understand that change is constant and effective change management is needed to win. Students will explore the role of Human Resources in executing successful change management initiatives within an organization.
