Graduate Certificate in Public Human Resources Management

In today’s multifaceted organizations, public human resource professionals must respond to the growing challenges of regulatory compliance, complex benefit plans, and training and motivating employees. This proposed graduate certificate program is designed to give students a full introduction to the principles, strategies, and techniques of public human resources management. The program will foster a deep understanding of organizational development, diversity and effective change management; workforce planning and strategic recruitment; and training and performance management in the public and nonprofit sectors. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has projected the demand for human resources professionals to grow 9% by 2024. As the competition for this job grows, HR professionals with valuable graduate certificates make them to be more likely to stand out from the other candidates.
