Human Resource Management (MBA)

Human Resource Management Degree Overview

This degree program gives the students an advanced knowledge of business with a focus on Human Resources. The Thomas College program in Human Resource Management is designed for students who wish to pursue a career in human resource management.

The Society for Human Resource Management confirms that the curriculum taught in the MBA-HR program aligns with the recommended requirements for HR degree programs in the SHRM HR Curriculum Guidebook and templates.

“I took and passed the SHRM-CP (Society of Human Resource Management – Certified Professional) exam as part of my studies here. This is a strenuous exam; I studied for about five months and put in well over 100 hours. This wasn’t something I considered taking until I heard of the Fire and Ice program at Thomas College. Having the additional financial support and motivation was what inspired me to start preparing for this exam. The certification, along with the MBA-HR program will certainly help me today and down the line in my career.”
