, WI,
Recent developments such as demographic changes in the labor force, increased global competition, changes in laws and public policy, and new theories of organizational behavior have made human resource management especially important for all organizations. 


Workplace needs will be challenging in the twenty-first century, and the human resource manager will need to be informed and able to adapt to the changes. In addition, leaders in this area need to think systematically and strategically about managing the firm’s human capital.

The Human Resource Management Concentration is designed for individuals who are currently employed in human resources or who are considering seeking employment in this area. This concentration provides the information and tools necessary for the development of successful human resource management strategies in a complex global environment.

Students who want to take the PHR or SPHR certification exams developed and conducted by the Human Resource Certification Institute (HSCI) in collaboration with the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) should enroll in HRMG699 as part of DU’s MBA Human Resource Management Concentration.

In addition, students who want to sit for the Certified Professional Manager (CM) exam from the Institute of Certified Professional Managers (ICPM) should complete MGMT699 as one of their course options in this concentration.

Davenport University’s 39 credit MBA program is designed for those early in their business careers and entrepreneurial endeavors, and those mid to senior-level managers looking to sharpen their professional skills. The student will complete a set of core requirements prior to proceeding to concentration courses.
