Human Resources professionals provide a crucial link between management and employees, helping to recruit and hire the best workers, draft workplace policies, and oversee payroll and benefits. The Human Resources Management concentration from Concordia University, Nebraska is a degree program that will prepare you for professional certification and a rewarding career in HR.
Whether working at a small firm or leading an entire department, HR professionals must wear many hats. As part of the management team, they help executives make strategic organizational and staffing decisions. On the recruitment side, HR professionals use all available channels – LinkedIn, online job boards, and “head hunters” – to find the best candidates. And as part of employee relations, HR professionals manage complex benefit packages and mediate labor disputes.
The Human Resources Management program is also excellent preparation for taking the exams leading to certification as a Professional in Human Resources (PHR) or a Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) through the nationally recognized HR Certification Institute.
This Human Resources Management concentration also fits within Concordia Nebraska’s mission as a traditional nonprofit university with a faith-based approach to learning: Our goal is to create effective servant-leaders through rigorous academics, supported by caring, experienced instructors.
