This unique program is designed for students desiring a foundation in general management and human resources. The MBA program provides students with a broad foundation in general management, including advanced training in diverse fields such as accounting, enterprise growth and development, finance, information systems, marketing, management, and operations. The MSHR program provides students with in-depth training in the management of people in organizations. Coursework includes talent acquisition and retention, labor/employee relations, compensation and benefits and training and organizational development. Completing the MSHR/MBA program will allow graduates to enter the job market with both sets of expertise. The HR profession is increasingly calling for graduates who couple broad business understanding with in-depth HR expertise. For MBAs, enhanced training in the leadership and management of people will strengthen their abilities to mobilize and effectively utilize the human talent in their organizations.
This dual program can be completed in two years (6 semesters). Either the MBA or the MSHR program can be completed first.
Students will apply for the first degree program, either MBA or MSHR. If approved for admission, the student may then apply for the second degree program by submitting a "Degree Advancement Form" (available in the School of Graduate Studies). Students will not be fully matriculated into the second degree program until their first degree has been awarded, although there will be an overlap of classes in the case of students who go from MSHR to the MBA (see first table below).
