Requirements for the human resources management program include the completion of four different types of coursework: business school core courses, a globalization course, specific human resources management courses, and designated liberal arts courses.

B.S. Human Resources Management

For students majoring in human resources management, all business core, globalization, and human resources management courses are included in the determination of the grade point average in the major.
