Human Resource Management

Human Resource Management - Managing a Company's Greatest Asset: People. A pair of Hands holding the icons of various people.

Every company needs hard-working, problem-solving HR professionals to recruit and manage employees, shape company culture, administer benefits, set policies, and serve as business partners to the organization’s leaders. Students pursuing the Business Administration: Human Resource Management will deal with fundamental organizational processes that must be developed and managed for continuous improvement by both HR specialists and by all managers in general. Thus, the study of HR takes on a dual emphasis. First, by pursuing an HR specialization, students will be thoroughly trained to focus decision-making as it pertains to the acquisition, utilization, development and retention of employees. Alternatively, the study of HRM is also applicable as a strong supplement to other specializations or majors. recognized CWU's HR program as one of the top in the nation
