Why do HR professionals choose UConn?

The UConn School of Business' top-ranked Graduate Programs in Human Resource Management (HRM) feature leading-edge curricula taught by experienced faculty, designed around the specific needs of today's HR professionals.

Why study HRM?

Credentials have become a staple in today’s workplace.  For those who hope to advance to a management or leadership role within their organization, competition will be intense.  Specialized advanced degrees demonstrate to employers a dedication to life-long learning, as well as a desire to support an organization’s growth goals through higher level competencies.  A specialized master’s degree allows students to practice newly learned business skills in a safe, risk-free environment, all while developing a strong network of professional peers. In short, graduate study in HRM will facilitate personal growth and will create new and exciting career opportunities.

Pair HRM with SHRM

HR professionals often ask which credential carries more weight when considering furthering their education, and the answer often lies with each person’s specific goals.  What can’t be argued is that HR roles have become significantly more complex over the past decade.  Understanding organizational concepts such as business strategy, finance, data analytics and compliance are now required, not preferred.  Pairing the comprehensive and in-depth learnings of an advanced degree with a SHRM membership and certification can show commitment to the field, demonstrate a desire to know current trends and practices, and will help you stand out in the world of HR.
