Spotlight: Human Resources
The working world has changed dramatically. The need for a degree is evident in every career field, including human resources.
As organizational expectations of the potential contributions of a human resources professional have increased, the need for the human resources leader to possess both experience and a degree has increased, too.
Human Resources managers and supervisors are keys to overall business success. Everyone understands human resources is entrusted with sensitive business materials, but is also expected to contribute to employee retention, candidate recruitment, organizational development, and fostering a positive working environment.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook:
“A master's degree in human resources, labor relations, or in business administration with a concentration in human resources management is highly recommended for those seeking general and top management positions."
Furthering your education with a Master’s degree can only benefit your career long-term. Human Resource practitioners enjoy a variety of career options and are able to flex different strengths within their job. There is diversity in the field.
At Amberton University, graduate students in the Human Resource Training and Development program move on to fill leadership positions in human resources, training and development, recruiting and staffing, team development and consulting roles in both public and private settings. And in falling in line with the human element and focusing on the benefit and growth of the whole, the faculty in the Human Resources program desire for their students to succeed.
“Our professors are high touch. We’re constantly reaching out to our students, seeing what we can do to help them. We are there for our students, we respond quickly, I think that’s what differentiates us,” Amberton Faculty member Dr. DiAnn Sanchez said.
