Master of Science in Human Resource Management

Degree Plan Details

Back to Program Overview

Human resource management (HRM) is the process of employing people, training them, compensating them, developing policies relating to them, and developing strategies to retain them.  As a field, HRM has undergone many changes over the last twenty years, giving it an even more critical role in today’s organizations.  Strategic human resource has evolved into more business responsibilities in the organization.  HRM practitioners are seen as a partner in organizational success, as opposed to a necessity for legal compliance or compensation.  Strategic HRM utilizes the talent and opportunity within the human resource department to make other departments stronger and more effective.  Strategic human resource management aligns with the goals of other departments and overall organizational goals. The mission of the program is to prepare individuals with careers as human resource managers, compensation and benefit managers, labor relations managers and directors of industrial relations. The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has acknowledged that Amberton University’s Master of Science in Human Resource Management is fully aligned with SHRM’s HR Curriculum Guidebook and templates.  The Society of Human Resource (SHRM) has outlined essential HP knowledge, skills, and abilities to be a proficient and strategic business HR professional.  The MS-HRM can be completed 100% online.
