Graduate Human Resources Management Certificate (Bachelor's degree Required) (Graduate)
The Graduate Certificate Program in Human Resources Management was created in response to the important role of human resources (HR) management in any organization. This certificate program has been designed for experience human resources professionals who seek to expand competencies within this field. This certificate program trains the student to become a full-service generalist who can provide leading-edge solutions in all facets of HR functionality, from benefits design and administration to employee and labor relations, training, and educational development of employees, and leadership in change management for the entire business organization. Topics include: human resources management, legal issues in the workplace, employee motivation and compensation, strategy formulation and implementation, and human resources capstone. Students who complete the Graduate Human Resources Management Certificate Program will acquire the skills and knowledge used by directors of human resources, employee relations managers, EEO officers, and compensation and benefits managers. Today's human resources managers consult top executives regarding strategic planning. They have moved from behind-the-scenes staff work to leading organizations in suggesting and changing human resources policies. Senior management is recognizing the importance of the human resources department to their bottom line. For example, the director of human resources may oversee several departments, each headed by an experienced manager, who most likely specializes in one personnel activity such as employment, compensation, benefits, training and development, or employee relations. The manager of each of these activities also requires specialized human resources management education. The EEO officers investigate and resolve EEO grievances, examine corporate practices for possible violations, and compile and submit EEO statistical reports. Employee relations managers respond to employee complaints and grievances by conducting investigations and working with both employees and management to resolve these situations. Compensation and benefits managers establish and maintain a firm's pay and benefits system. Assisted by staff specialists, compensation and benefits managers devise ways to ensure fair and equitable pay and benefits. They may conduct surveys to see how their firm compares with others and to see that the firm's pay scale and benefits comply with changing laws and regulations. In addition, compensation and benefits managers often oversee their firm's performance evaluation system, and they may design reward systems such as pay-for-performance plans. Students who successfully complete these courses will be awarded graduate-level credit for each course and a professional certificate upon completion of all courses in the certificate program.
