Why the BW MBA in Human Resources (HRMBA)?
The HRMBA provides students with fundamental managerial and leadership skills that will enable them to understand strategic and operational issues in managing human capital in organizations.
In today's complex and competitive global business environment it is no longer sufficient for an individual to possess narrow subject matter expertise. The Human Resources manager must combine a broad understanding of all the responsibilities of that field with an appreciation and understanding of all of the key activities of the enterprise and environment in which it exists.
Leadership skills, the ability to communicate and work in teams, and a disciplined, ethical approach to problem solving are all fundamental and necessary. The success of the manager in human resources will depend on mastery of these skills. The HR MBA program gives participants the opportunity to study and learn with other HR professionals and to interact with managers from other business disciplines when taking courses covering key general business topics. BW is a leader in offering the values based practical learning required for success as a business manager.
The curriculum is directed toward developing Human Resource managers and follows the systems approach to graduate education. The systems approach helps managers to view their own strengths and competencies within a broader understanding of organizational and environmental dynamics.
The program is designed for the working adult with evening classes.
The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has identified the curriculum at Baldwin Wallace University as aligning with their professional guidelines and requirements.
