MBA in Human Resource Management

Human Resource Management is one of nine interdisciplinary MBA concentrations offered by MVNU.

An MBA in Human Resource Management enables students to develop a robust professional repertoire, thanks in part to extensive concentration courses that far surpass what's offered by the curricula of a traditional MBA program or human resource management master's degree. Human resource professionals need to think systematically—meaning they must have an in-depth knowledge of the entire organization, its various moving parts, and how each element impacts other systems within it. Human resource management professionals also need a thorough understanding of their organization’s most valuable assets: its employees.

Graduates of MVNU’s MBA with a concentration in Human Resource Management are prepared to become thoughtful, effective, and ethical leaders within their organizations, developing a solutions-oriented workforce that fosters collaboration and engagement.

HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT CONCENTRATION COURSES

The remaining nine (9) credit hours are specific to the Human Resource Management concentration and are all fully online. The coursework covers essential areas of human resource management, including problem-solving and decision-making in business settings.

This course provides an introduction to strategic problem-solving and decision-making to manage the human resource functions of an organization. Processes for managing and evaluating human resource functions are examined, including benchmarking, measurement, and evaluation techniques. Other topics include the activities that support and develop employees in a manner that contributes to the organization’s vision, mission, goals, and business strategies.

This course explores the Chief Learning Officer (CLO) or Chief Knowledge Officer (CKO) and how this is viewed as a corporation asset. It is designed to help human resource administrators improve the effectiveness of employees through learning opportunities and changes in patterns of relationships among work groups. Special emphasis is placed on methods of training, learning, and developing all levels of employees.

This class examines problem-solving and decision-making skills when managing performance issues and reward incentives in human resources. Students examine performance appraisal systems, methods, theory and skill development techniques, workplace performance, salary and wage structures, compensation systems, incentive and reward programs, benefits, and employee motivations. Theories and practical applications are emphasized.
