The Evolving Landscape of Human Resources

The working world has changed dramatically, and the need for a degree is evident in every career field, including human resources. As organizational expectations of the potential contributions of a human resources professional have increased, so has the need for HR leaders to possess both experience and a degree.

Everyone understands that human resources is entrusted with sensitive business materials, but they are also expected to contribute to employee retention, candidate recruitment, organizational development, and fostering a positive working environment. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook: A master's degree in human resources, labor relations, or in business administration with a concentration in human resources management is highly recommended for those seeking general and top management positions."
