Master of Science in Management: Human Resource Management

In the world of business, we are our most dependable resource. While computers, technology, and networking systems have automated much of everyday business, it is still people, and thus human resources that create, instruct and maintain the systems. Without human resource management, workplaces would fail for lack of infrastructure. A master of science in management program with a concentration in human resources focuses on the operational success of the people that run a business. Sales people, marketing people, engineering people, production people, and more all need some kind of system to operate under. Human resource managers create that system.

Techniques taught in an MSM program may provide students with the knowledge they need to perform in a variety of jobs. Roles might include organizing company benefits packages, recruiting new employee candidates, and formalizing a hiring process. Corporations often use HR managers to oversee departments and teams of people. These professionals ensure everybody is aware of their roles within the company and how they are compensated for their contributions. Healthcare HR managers perform very similar duties, but with the added legal elements that come with providing healthcare to patients. The hospitality industry might utilize a human resources specialist to help recruit and hire a new team. This manager could be responsible for seeing that the new recruits come to work for the organization with the predetermined hotel culture objectives in mind.
