TAMPA, Fla. — Michigan State University is now offering a Master Certificate in Strategic Human Resource Management through University Alliance, a Florida-based aggregator of online degree and certificate programs from American universities and institutions.
Four eight-week online courses reveal how managers, HR professionals and those who aspire to such roles can impact their company’s intellectual capital and create competitive advantages through human resources.
Participants in the courses will learn to attract and retain top talent, implement key compensation techniques, design meaningful reward systems and succession plans, manage HR compliance and regulatory issues, and use performance metrics to pinpoint challenges, opportunities and HR training needs.
“Individuals who manage employees are increasingly expected to drive business value through human resources,” said Stefanie Lenway, Eli and Edythe L. Broad Dean of MSU’s Broad College of Business. “We’re proud to help them do it by adding this new master certificate to our strategic leadership and management executive development programs.”
Through video-based lectures that can be watched online or downloaded to mobile devices and multimedia technology powered by University Alliance, the Broad College’s master’s-level faculty provide valuable insight and instruction. And because this human resource certificate is provided by MSU’s Broad College of Business — ranked No. 2 for human resource management by Financial Times, 2012, and one of the nation’s top 20 business schools by both Bloomberg Businessweek and Forbes — students can be assured they’re adding a respected credential to their resume.
Certificate courses include human resource management; compensation and reward management; work force management and development; and one elective to match professional goals.
Participants will also receive an online assessment and resource tool, StrengthsFinder, that helps them realize how strengths impact work performance, career planning, team building and effective interviewing, and an exclusive series of Let’s Talk Sessions, featuring interviews with human resource experts from today’s top businesses, including Fortune 500 companies.
