MBA Human Resource Management
Common Body of Knowledge
(18 hours maximum)
These courses represent the minimum background required of students prior to taking 6000-level courses in the M.B.A. program. Students admitted to the M.B.A. program can meet the requirements by taking the 5000-level courses. If a student can demonstrate that he/she has completed equivalent course work at the undergraduate level prior to admission to the M.B.A. program and has earned a grade of C (2.0) or better in the course(s), the corresponding 5000-level course may be waived. Once admitted to the M.B.A. program, students may not take an undergraduate course and apply that course towards credit for 5000-level requirements.

(Minimum 9 hours)
Each student may select up to two majors. An alternative is to select the administration major, which is designed for students who prefer to take a variety of electives in different areas. The substitution of any courses for a major requires the written approval of the appropriate Department Chair. No more than one independent study/research paper (three hours) may be taken in lieu of a course to fulfill a specialization requirement, and no more than one course will be allowed to count towards two majors in the M.B.A. program.
Human Resource Management
The Human Resource Management major is designed both for students who intend to seek or continue managerial careers in human resources, and for those who are seeking more general leadership positions, but need to understand approaches to attracting, retaining, compensating, motivating and managing employees in contemporary organizations.
