Master of Human Resource Management
Offered online or on campus
The master of human resource management (MHRM) degree program is designed for human resource generalists and those individuals looking to focus specifically on careers in human resources or related professions such as management consulting. The program will focus on formal and informal organizational dynamics as they relate to leading and managing human capital.
The curriculum maps into the professional competencies of the Human Resource and Human Capital Professions yet draws on the unique strengths of GW School of Business (GWSB). The program also complements GW’s MBA program by cross-listing many of the courses with the MBA and specialized master’s programs. This allows students to pursue a professional degree targeted towards the HR profession, while gaining the benefits of learning in a business school.
Students who earn the MHRM from GWSB will:
1. Comprehend the role organizational dynamics and human resource concepts play in the successful pursuit of organizational goals.
2. Critically examine, evaluate, and integrate organizational and human resource concepts and dynamics.
3. Develop skills relevant to performing organizational roles in human resource management as outlined by the Society of Human Resource Management.
4. Understand how behavioral sciences impact the effective working of organizations and the role that the profession of human resources plays in applying behavioral sciences to organizations.
