A company or organization is only as strong as its people, and as a professional in the human resources field, you play a key role in ensuring that your organization hires the people who will serve it best. It's a role that's always valued and in-demand and is ideal if you're seeking an intersection of personal relations and business in your career.

An online graduate certificate in human resources from Husson University is designed to help you prepare for leadership roles in human resources. This program can be completed in just one year, and as a graduate, you will be qualified to plan, direct and coordinate human resources operations in organizations of all types. The comprehensive curriculum allows for customization so you can choose the courses that align with your ultimate career goals.

As you study, you'll take on coursework featuring relevant topics like organizational behavior, staffing, employment law, compensation and more. You will learn to connect a company’s goals with the talents of its employees to improve business outcomes and help your company succeed.
