According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for human resource managers will rise by 13% between 2012 and 2022—an addition of 13,900 more jobs. Businesses and organizations of all types need HR professionals to help them attract talent, develop strong teams, and keep employees motivated. This key business function needs skilled and creative leadership in order to add value to an organization.

You will emerge from this program ready to lead within a wide range of private and public organizations.
