Program description

Master of Human Resource Management (MHRM)

The Master of Human Resource Management (MHRM) degree consists of graduate-level courses designed for professionals seeking a deeper theoretical and practical understanding of management principles related to human resources.

Courses examine traditional functions such as recruitment and retention, development and compensation and benefits. The program also covers emerging disciplines like HR information systems and leadership theory, the impact of globalization and workforce diversity.

With small class sizes (the average is 12-15 students) and adjunct professors who are themselves working professionals in the HR sector, our HRM classes provide opportunities to study cutting-edge theory and to apply that theory in real-world settings — sometimes even the next day at work.

MHRM and HRM graduate certificate students study together in core classes, providing rich opportunities to learn from peers who are currently working in the HR sector.

The MHRM requires 30 semester hours of graduate coursework split between six core courses and four 600-level courses. The degree does not require a thesis, and we accept up to six semester hours of applicable transfer work.

Admission requirements

Students seeking admission to the Master of Human Resource Management or the Graduate Certificate in Human Resource Management must have the following (in addition to the admission requirements for all graduate programs):

  • A baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited U.S. college or university (or international equivalent)
  • A grade point average of 3.0 or higher on all college or university academic work attempted

Students who do not meet the minimum GPA requirements may be considered on a case-by-case basis for conditional admission. To remain in the program, conditionally admitted students must earn a minimum 3.0 grade point average in the first three semester hours taken following conditional admission.

English Proficiency

Applicants whose native language is not English, or whose collegiate level or secondary level instruction was not in English, must demonstrate English proficiency by examination prior to admission to and/or enrollment in the School. The University may require additional evaluation for language proficiency through testing or individual interviews for students with scores near the minimum score.

TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) requires a score of at least:

  • 550 on the paper-based test
  • 213 on the computer-based test
  • 80 on the internet-based test

IELTS (International English Language Testing System) requires a score of 6.5 on the test.
