MHR Program Ranking Award LogoThe Master of Human Resources (MHR) online program at the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University ranks fourth in nation, according to Human Resources MBA, a resource guide for the human resources industry. This top ranking measured the Huntsman MHR program against 200 accredited schools with online programs aligning to the Society for Human Resource Management’s recommended guidelines for a quality HR education. The Huntsman School’s ranking surpassed other notable schools such as Pennsylvania State University, Villanova University, University of Houston, and University of Maryland.

The fourth place ranking recognized the Huntsman School MHR online program in part for offering exceptional benefits such as e-tutoring, IT remote assistance, student software discounts, and online academic advising.

“This is wonderful recognition of our work in developing a high-quality, distance-delivered program,” remarked Dr. Steven H. Hanks, Director of Graduate Studies in Human Resources at the Huntsman School. He further commented on the 95 percent placement rate for graduates. “We are excited about the kind of internships our students are landing and the kind of jobs they are finding with many incredible companies and organizations not only locally but nationally and internationally as well.”
