Preparing future leaders for professional careers, students receive a comprehensive, contemporary foundation in human resources and labor relations, gain a broad global perspective, and learn to apply best practices, lead organizational change, and act strategically as business leaders.
The curriculum of the Human Resources and Labor Relations program at Michigan State University offers a wide range of courses across required core knowledge areas including: human resource management, labor-management relations, organizational change, business acumen, international human resources and employment relations, workplace law, economics of human resources, and quantitative methods for human resource analyses.
In addition to classroom instruction, nearly all students participate in paid summer internships with companies between their first and second year in the program. Through these summer internships, students receive invaluable mentoring and on-the-job learning, working as members of specific project teams and undertaking individual assignments.
