Concordia University, Nebraska has been named #10 on Go Grad’s third annual ranking for the 2015-16 best master’s degree programs in human resources.

“Our Master of Business Administration program has expanded to offer nine areas of concentration to better help business professionals hone the skills in their areas of expertise,” said Shannon Leinen, director of Concordia’s MBA program. “Our two human resources-related concentrations—human resource management, and leadership and managing teams through change—give our graduate students opportunities to serve and support others effectively in a variety of fields. We are honored that the two programs have been recognized in this way.”

Go Grad is an online platform where aspiring graduate students of all ages, backgrounds and specialties can get information to make knowledgeable decisions about their education.

Ranked schools were evaluated based on the:

  • Number of online graduate degrees available in related subject area
  • Graduate tuition
  • Availability of academic and career counseling services
  • Availability of job placement services

“We made sure to highlight the universities that are going above and beyond the educational standard for online human resource degrees,” said Dan Schuessler, CEO and founder of Go Grad. “These universities have made sure that a field projected to grow by 9% in the next 10 years will have a well-trained work force.”
