In Their Own Words

 
“I started the MHRM program with almost 10 years of real world experience in human resources. I have been very impressed by the knowledge of the faculty and their ability to tie their topics to challenges I have seen in the workplace. I have found my professors to be genuinely interested in my development as a professional. I definitely believe the program has prepared me for a leadership role in human resources."
