On average, people (and that includes you!) spend a third of their lives at work, amounting to about 90,000 hours in a lifetime. To improve people’s lives and make an impact, earn a degree in HR management. You can change the future of company culture while also helping a company retain their employees.
The Human Resource Management major in UW-Green Bay’s Cofrin School of Business provides students with in-depth knowledge in the Human Resources Management domain through a rigorous curriculum with courses covering important topics in HR such as employee retention and development, recruitment and selection, compensation, job performance and cutting-edge topics such as HR Analytics.
The program provides considerable exposure to the liberal arts and develops the critical thinking, problem-solving, interpersonal, communication, quantitative and computer skills needed by graduates to successfully serve as leaders within modern organizations. The program also addresses contemporary organizational issues such as global competition, social responsibility and ethics, sustainability, and the relationship between organizations and various environmental forces.
In the HRM major students begin their studies by taking general education courses as well as introductory-level business courses. Additionally, students take courses providing an overall understanding of business such as the basics of Marketing, Accounting, Human Resources, Management and Finance among others. Finally, students take HRM-focused upper-level courses and complete a capstone course, prior to applying for graduation.
