Today’s senior executives and managers in human resources must be multitalented as business partners, leaders, change agents, advocates and HR experts. This advanced 10-course certificate is designed to provide human resources leaders with strategic and tactical skills for improving organizational effectiveness, developing a talent-management culture, building employee engagement, and understanding the fiscal impacts of human resources departments.
Program participants will gain detailed understanding of HR processes and systems, as well as practical “how-to” knowledge for administering human resources programs and moving into strategic positions as part of the company management team in today’s competitive business environment.
