Well-trained human resource professionals are incredibly valuable in today's business environment. They serve as strategic leaders working with leadership on issues related to communications, ethics, and budgeting; navigating changes within an organization; acting as a link between management and employees, and ensuring each team member is empowered and best positioned to contribute to a company's success.
A Master of Arts in Human Resource Management degree from Saint Mary's University of Minnesota prepares graduates for careers as human resource managers, compensation and benefits managers, labor relations managers, and more.
