Certificate in Human Resource Management

Human Resource Professionals account for almost 1 million jobs in the current economy. Because managing resources is critical to an organization's success, knowledgeable and skilled Human Resource professionals are always in high demand. Human Resource professionals have evolved from behind-the-scenes administrators to leading the company in acquiring top talent and changing policies. Today's Human Resource generalists and specialists are tasked not only with talent management but are increasingly relied upon by senior executives to contribute to strategic planning.

Developed by leaders in the Human Resource Management field and approved for recertification credits by the HR Certification Institute (HRCI®), Florida Atlantic University's Certificate in Human Resource Management program prepares you to be an effective and integral member of an organization's Human Resource Management team.
