How will I benefit from UM’s program? 

Taught by instructors with vast experience in the industry, our human resources program uses real-life applications and hands-on training to teach both theory and practical methodology. Our innovative curriculum, designed with SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management) guidelines and topics in mind, develops critical competencies and decision-making skills and increases knowledge of core HR duties such as staffing, compensation, employee relations, organizational development, training, benefits, and employing effective recruitment strategies. Students delve into individual “case studies” that expand from module to module throughout the duration of the course. The end result is an invaluable client folder which can be used as a reference guide after the program ends.
