Atlanta – The redesigned Master of Science in Human Resources Management (MS-HRM) offered by Georgia State University’s Robinson College of Business provides graduates with functional acumen in H.R. management and an understanding of people leadership strategy.
The new curriculum was developed in consultation with Atlanta-area H.R. practitioners, including program alumni, members of the Atlanta chapter of the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM), and members of Robinson’s Human Resources Executive RoundTable, according to program director Thomas Conklin.
“We restructured Robinson’s graduate program in H.R. management to provide immersive experiences with partner organizations and to cover topics increasingly important to H.R. strategy, including digital H.R., predictive analytics and technology, diversity and inclusion, talent acquisition in critical shortage areas, and ethics, culture, and conflict management,” Conklin said.
Program faculty include academics and practitioners whose expertise spans gender differences, industrial psychology, career entry and newcomer adjustment, organizational politics, performance measurement, team building, and leadership development.
The demand for H.R. professionals is growing. According to the “Occupational Outlook Handbook” of the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for H.R. managers will rise 7 percent between 2018 and 2028. By contrast, the average growth rate for all occupations between 2018 and 2028 is projected at 5 percent.
The 10-course, 12-month program meets two evenings per week at Georgia State’s Buckhead Center and prepares students to sit for the SHRM certification exam. Learn more at https://robinson.gsu.edu/mshrm.
